    Yeah the new lift system is interesting. Its similar to the way all boss plows are set up with the cylinder down there, would not be surprised when if they redesigned other plows like this i have two boss plows and this lift system works flawlessly. I just became a fisher dealer so its nice to see the new HT series and see what others think.If anyone is interested I would be willing to give quotes for any new blades or parts or just the truck side if you need it. Im close to the Mass And Connecticut borders and eastern new york. Getting in some blades at the end of this month. PRESEASON PRICES ARE ON!

    I like the the chain lift better. I have allways had Fisher plows and I never had a probablem with the chain lift. I think the should have put 3 trip springs on it like the 7.5' HD plows.

    Look in to Fisher's history, this is not the first direct lift Fisher.

    Whats so "new" about the lift system internal to Fisher? It uses the same basic lift design as the homesteader has for years. In fact it uses the same hydro unit as well...

    A couple more threads and this subject will be right up there with "What's the best tire?", and "Can I plow with a half ton?".

    Notice they barely even make mention of not having a chain lift, hahaha poor fisher. It's hard to brag about the advantages of direct lift, while the remainder of your entire line use's chains.

    the hook ups and stands llok like they borrowed them from their western line, and also did anyone notice the triangle between the lights so it looks like a lift frame, haha, i dont think they will be getting rid of the rest of the chain lift style anytime soon

    There is a whole lot of speculation about these, but when someone actually lays their hands on one could you let me know, I am considering one and need to make a decision soon. Thanks!
