    Just because it has a fisher sticker on it don't make it a Fisher plow. That is a home made plow. it is made with components and manufacturing methods that NO manufacturer would use.

    You do realize that the above linked video is of a model plow on an rc truck right? It's not a "real" plow. Just making sure.

    That things is pretty cool. And a decent scrape from an RC set-up.

    Pretty cool. It scrapes better than a real Fisher plow!

    Hey, that's my plow. Glad you guys like it. I tried to make it as real as possible compared to my Fisher plow I had on my Bronco.

    Great job dude. That's good work. You should have down pressure with the lift servo.

    I thought about it, but it takes too much weight off the front end when plowing, and the truck looses traction. With a servo, there's no real "float" option.

    It would take a long time to plow a driveway with that! LOL

    Nice work.

    I've been building RC plows for a long time. This one took about 2 weeks to build. I already knew how to design the trip edge from the Fisher V-Plow I built last year.

    Sorry, but I can't stand when someone blasts something without taking the time to figure out what's really there. Chris

    That's really cool. Does the chain lift the blade? I couldn't really tell. And it looks like you have power angle. How big is the blade, and how much snow can you plow with it?

    Thanks- Yes, it has a chain lift, and it angles left, straight, and right via a high torque servo. The blade is 12.5" long. I can plow about 2" of light snow.

    Add some Timbrens and 8 lbs of ballast, I bet you could plow 4" :laughing::laughing:
