    Blade...

    Haverhill, I scraped plenty of pack(Belly blade) up that way on 495 for that pit....I was out of Pine St. Manchester(Bye the Sea) lol..
    The Foot has/had a yard on RT1 Foxboro and his main place I think is either Plainville or Walpole....I will try and find you a number...
    I do have some contacts out in NY state if you don't find one closer ...
    Do you know Howard Rogers? Have you talked with him?

    somewhere locally someone is selling the same truck as that with a powerangle plow on it. idk if it would be worth giving them a call and seeing if they will seperate it. If you want there # i will give it to ya.

    I know....

    Hi John,
    The majority of that style plow I have seen second hand have been the full trip blades...Makes it interesting when they shoot the truck across a lane.lol "Warsau"(sp) used to make a bunch of them and since others have followed (Root,Everest etc...)....
    What does your FWD have for power? Cummins,Detroit? Standard, auto? Is it an 80's or am I way off?
    Best of luck in your search.Let me know how you make out I may have some other ideas...

    Update...

    H.P Fairfield lists a second hand Everest looks like a bottom trip in nice shape for $5,500- Thats probably a couple grand off the price of new....I'll try and attach a photo..

    It is a 1983 RB44 cummings 290 with 3 stage jake 5 speed with low range lockers ft and rear .
    i don't like it when the plow trips and shoots you in to oncoming traffic scary .
    I would like to put a oshkosh heated windshield in to it. I was told you can get one for a P series I just need the window de mentions do you have a p series?

    Not any more..


    Sold all my iron back in 2001...
    I did have a big P series (54,000gvw), it is still plowing out of the Pine St pit..I didn't have heated glass.
    The only trucks I was aware of with heated glass where the newer style Walters.. If Oshkosh had heated glass I wish I had it...lol I did have good heat...

    That is the correct phone number for the foot, he just doesn't like answering the phone, so keep calling!

    Little far away but Altrux in Herkimer, N.Y. Right off the Thruway. Goggle them, I would have # & address but cannot locate it right now. Sweet looking FWD though!
