    I have an only Tri plow that Iv been using for a couple years now, it's mounted on to a 1995 f 350. The pump is cable operated and my issue is the cables are not really long enough! They are the 9 foot ones but I'm wondering if anyone out there have longer after market ones made or places to buy! Looking for about 11 feet long! Thanks

    yes, there is a longer cable available, 12' part # 56180. rather expensive. and that's assuming you have the black plastic control with the round knob, not the red metal box with the t-handle.

    I doubt anybody would stock them (if they do they might give you a deal to get rid of them!), but any Western distributor should still be able to order them. list is $117.52 each, and they are still in the current price list, so as far as I know Western still has them.

    They are expensive! Considering the 9 foot ones are 30-40 dollars haha! Dose anyone have a set of 12' ones in good condition they would like to sell? Let me know!

    yes, the 12' ones are really expensive, and would be really rare. nobody's gonna have some just laying around. and no, red ones would be for the wrong style control (t-handle).

    Huh, I thought all the Tri-Plows were purchased back by Western after they lost the lawsuit. Really surprised parts are available.

    I don't remember anything about Western having to buy any back, or anything about a suit. But there wouldn't be many around, that's for sure.
    The only one I remember that Western actually recalled was the wheel plow.
