    Here is a pic from last year. I have Herculined the rockers since then so it looks more two toned now. Got rid of my rock chips though.

    83 Blazer....paid $100 for the truck, needed tranny ($500), pieced together the plow (total $450), $400 for new tires. So, for under $2000, got a decent little truck.

    About the S10s taking the weight of the plow, I find that it drops the front about 1 1/2 in when I lift it, but the ride doesn't seem to be affected much.

    Plows pretty good, could use a bit more weight and power.

    I put timbrens in the front and rear, there was 450lbs in the rear for ballast... There was a little sag when you lift the plow but the timbrens and weigth in the back helped tremendously.

    The plow is a fisher 6'9" LD

    Here is another pic

    Is the old 6'9" LD the same as the new 6'9" SD? I was thinking the SD was a little bigger becouse you never se anybody put them on small trucks any more, it's all Homesteaders now.

    Although this thread is just shy of its 7th birthday, the 6'9"/7'6" LD was the same as the SD until they put the taller blades on them like the one you have. My first choice was the SD but went with the HT, a few problems with the jack but its all gravy. I have seen and heard from a few people/places that Fisher will be doing away with the SD line for the HT since they are essentially for the same trucks. I think if they used the Insta-Act pumps instead of the Homesteader it could be a bit better, we shall see what happens if they do anything.

    Yes that are folds down and I put my Snowblower on it,better then trailering it. That screw lift I found in a thrift shop about 8 years ago it was for lifting handycap people and has a working load of 450 pounds. It is made of billet aluminum and The arm is medal and the plateform is aluminum magniz with steal. The motor is so small hold in the pum of your hand. It is pretty light weight but hi qualty materials made to make that lift. I worked at a company as a robot welder programer for 10 years and the company was leaving so I started a portable welding and maint-small engine repair out of a old custom but and I had made this lift for inside to put welding and lawnmowers on. I just fab for the truck then,sorry about babling
