    Does FISHER or any other company make a full cover ? I think FISHER only makes one for the headgear. If not, what size tarp, or another type of cover, like a motorcycle or ATV cover ?

    i use a 8x10 green poly tarp to cover my fisher 8 ft plow with the nice fisher foil on it plus i use those gator clips they work great to keep the tarp on with that size tarp i can cover the whole plow even the a-frame no ropes to un-tie just pull the clips and away you go works great.........

    Do you guys have any picture to show how you cover it?. I recently bought the biggest motorcycle cover i found, but it doesn't cover the whole plow, just the headgear

    Fisher does make a cover that goes over your headgear, down to the push frame it's like 150 payup. I believe Tucks trucks in Hudson sells them?

    I`ve heard of that. Not spending 150.00 for a cover though. To bad the motorcycle cover won`t fit, because it`s probably breathable, which is what you would want.

    You can get the larger tarps at Farm & Fleet or Granger. Granger is going to be very expensive. I would think that Tractor Supply would have them to but I have not been to one. We got them to hang from the across a wire to separate the bays in the shop. I think the biggest ones I found at F&F were 30X20.

    I know all about tarps, have a large one on my plow. Just wish there was a more "form fitting" kind that has elastic on the bottom and breathable. A motorcycle type would be perfect.

    I know Curtis makes full covers for all their size plows. You can buy them on their web site.

    Oh sorry Danno, For some reason I thought you were looking for a large tarp. Call a canvas company and give them the dimensions.

    Here are a few that make covers for tilt a whirl cars, bumper cars ect. They will make anything you want.

    Waterloo tent & Tarp Comp. http://www.waterlootent.com/

    Anchor Industries http://www.anchorinc.com/

    If they can't help you then let me know and I will give you a few more.

    Since danno asked, I'll go ahead and ask what I was wondering. Did you happen to work for Dacor there in Northbrook?

    Yes I do dive can't get enough of it.

    No I don't work for them. I repair and install amusement rides. Most of the work I do is for carnivals but I do some work for ride manufactures and amusement parks.

    Theres one in my boss's office for our new fisher. It's still in the package though. I'll look on it next time I'm up there to see if it fits just onto the mounting gear or the whole plow setup.

    yeah, I am also interested. I tried to cover the plow with the biggest motorcycle cover I could find and it was too small.

    LOL sorry for the late response guys-I checked it out last week and never remembered to post it.

    I tried the cover and it only fits on the mounting gear. I'm gonna try to look around and see if anyone has a full size 9' cover.

    Ill let ya'll know what I come up with!
