    Was down at Burquip truck today in Bedford Hills, NY.

    Talked about a few things.
    Meyer
    New blades supposed to be out but cannot get yet.
    V-plow is back in the line. They have seen but not sold.

    Fisher
    V-plows selling less this year
    MM2 are is snort supply.
    Same for the New Sanders

    Western
    Is it me or can the inlfuence from Fisher be seen in the new design?

    Just thought I would pass along my observations from a rainy day. Had fun and was able to pick up a few parts I needed.

    The new mount is Identical to Diamonds. from what I was told. THe Aggressor blades everyone talked about last year are finally going to be here.

    Also I have noticed that evryone is going to dual chains now. Looks like Fisher had it right from the start.

    Diamond had dual chains before Meyer, and really has a better lift chain set up than Fisher. I don't think Fisher use a dual chain left system IMO.

    I agree that the Diamond system is better then the Fisher. Two hooks. The new Western is the same way. The chain lifting from both sides of the A-frame is more of what I meant. I think this is better then lifting from one point IMO.
