    I'd like to see them merge an mc and xls, 9-10' moldboard with hydraulic wings. Preferably with the heavier cylinders and cutting edge.

    That would be a dream plow! My 10' mc is on its second truck and at 8 years old looks like almost new!

    I've only heard of a new stainless/electric Salter coming out this year. As far as plows go a 10-12' municipal xls would be interesting

    I called Fisher to ask this very question this year. I have two aging pre DD 8611lps and a new xv-2. It would be nice to have the same hookup for all my plows. The tech I spoke to said they had nothing in the works. Sad to say.

    I think an 8611 xls is what is coming out. 2 years ago I was talking to the vp of fisher and said that would be a great product to add soon. He did not say much except that could be in the works for 2015?
