    I have an older fisher plow and would like to find out how old it is. I can not find any model numbers. Is there a way to tell.

    Take a picture of the whole setup, a lot of guys can give you an idea that way....it isn't hard to tell! When you say older i'm going to guess it's at least an old speedcast, but other than that, pics will tell!

    Late 80's early 90's.
    I take it that it's hydro? Works great with the manual tranny.

    Negative, ghostrider... you wouldn't have seen this any later than mid 80's and no earlier than about 78. It's probably the same age as the truck

    I'd go with what grandview said, I'd say more 80's though because of the joystick style, and its a hydro under the hood, do to the type of lift ram. Those are really dependable plows, just not the quickest things on earth.

    Put the clutch in and tap the gas and it's quick. Used one for 16 yrs.As I was raising the plow I'd throw it in reverse.Now I have my V Boss and auto, I'm a lazy a$$ :D:D

    from your truck pictures in the other thread, I do think the plow is about the same vintage as your '78. Very well maintained for a blade of that era.

    I think I have the same frame and uprights. The Daimond blade I think is a 79. This is when Fisher emp. created Diamond I think. This is one hell of a heavy plow. Sorry I do not mean to highjask, but the old stuff is great.

    nice truck bulldog. from the pic, it looks like the A frame on the plow is at a pretty good angle sloping up toward the lifted truck. The A frame should be parrell to the ground. you may want to look into making an adjustment.

    that plow looks like one thats on my truck Fisher Speed Cast, Hydro, and i have the same controll box. the plow thats on my truck is over 20 yrs ols, the Molde number should be on the triangle plate that is above the yellow ram on the plow frame. right in front of where the lights go,
