Old Fisher on newer truck?

    I have two trucks, an '87 GMC 1-ton with an 8' Fisher (with steel deflector) and an '01 Silverado 2500HD (without the snow-plow-prep package.) I am getting rid of the GMC and need a plow for the Silverado, so I was thinking of moving the plow over, but it is heavy and I don't know if the Silverado will handle it.

    The 8' would be fine on that truck as long as its at least a minute mount or newer, fisher doesnt make a mount for the older conventional typwe blades for the newer trucks. You will also need to change the cross harness.

    Just posted a reply about anyone using older fisher plows. I took one from a '78 GMC to an '87 Chevy to a '92 Chevy. Fits perfect, works perfect, and was paid for 1 yr after it was on the '78...so, to me, it's the perfect plow.

    So, this means that I cannot put my old plow onto my new truck?
    I've heard that the hydraulics on the old plows are stronger, but that may have been on the engine-driven pump systems.
