    Hi everyone. Just wanted to introduce myself before I start posting questions. My name is Jeremie and I just purchased a Fisher MM1 8ft for my 95 F-250 Powerstroke. I'm a home owner and aircraft maintenance tech for a large corporation. I am looking around here to try and figure out ways to mount and maintain my personal trucks plow. I also figure if we have some kind of issue at work with the 2 Myers plow setups we have I may be able to find useful knowledge on here.

    Basically i'm here to learn and help if I can...

    Yes the 444 is related to the 7.3l Powerstroke in my personal truck:nod:

    I am putting the plow on my truck just to plow out my dads and my place.


    I will be plowing my company's (Large Pharmaceutical Chain) Hangar Ramp and parking lot's. Using a TUG(2wd) with a myers 7.5" and a GMC Yukon with I think the same setup maybe a little newer. Don't know much about Myers setups.

    You'll start out doing your place and your dads, then you'll be lured by the romance and excessive money that plowing commercially offers like it has done to all of us........

    Yeah that's what everyone has been saying, once you get a taste of the money you'll start plowing for money, well my hours at my job really don't allow for me to have accounts. I can't be one hundred percent sure that i'll be able to be there every single time it snows.
    The snow removal on the ramp side of the airport is independent of the actual airport facilities(which is state) We're on the private sector of the airport so no state money funding my plowing, the company I work for is responsible for maintaining their portion of the ramp, and our own parking lot.

    Thanks, the company has insurance but I usually don't plow near the planes, the more experienced guys usually get there first.

    I have a question about push plate (MM1) mounting for my F250.. best area to post this?

    In the Fisher section would be the place to ask about your mounting or you could just email them.
