    I am looking to purchase a V Extreme Fisher Plow or Meyer V-2 for my H-1 Hummer. Which is better? Has anyone used a plow or even a snow blower attachment with an H-1? Any recommendations? If so, I have questions about the mounting they want to covert the lights to 24 volts, which I don't think I need if wired correctly, since I have two 12-volt batteries. Looking for input from the experienced.

    if you have two batteries doesnt necessarily mean you are running 24v.. only if the batteries are ran in series. Most likely they are ran in parallel so you only running 12v.

    H1's are 24v systems.

    That's what someone else told me. I wasn't going to go to with him because I didn't think he knew what he was talking about. Better check again.

    Aren't H1 Hummers rare collectors items now?

    H-1 are a mixture of 24 and 12 volts, while some engine components and starters are 24 volts light wiring is 12.

    Found Arrowhead, and they helped me with regard to the size of the plow and mount size. They have trouble getting them too.

    Talked with an H1 Certified Mechanic (almost as extinct as the Hummer). Civilians are 12 volt, and military 24 volt. Only reason for the extra battery is to help start the diesel engine.

    I think I'll suggest that to the people installing the mount.

    I am so thankful to all of you experienced plowers for taking the time to help me with your experience. I have now ordered the Fisher XtremeV 8.5'. The mount is coming from Arrowhead. They make them for the military humvees for the Fisher blades, and will be revised locally for the 12 volts that the civilian hummers take. Should have it in two weeks. Once I start going and have problems, I know where to turn!
