    Yea I wish I had one of these set ups, they just look like the toughest of them all. the mounts look like the ones the towns/DOT uses.

    Always liked the conventional mount. Had a brush guard custom made for the plowframe in summer to accommodate the hardwired lights on my 1993 GMC (pics to follow)

    Here is the last Fisher Conventional We have going. Although I do have some older complete setups and am eying a 84 Chevy for a project.

    This one is a 92 4x4
    Custom Dumping Flatbed
    Rear Air Bags
    Snoway 6ft Stainless Electric Spreader
    7Ft Fisher With Electric Clutch Belt Drive (Also lifts the bed)

    I will get another shot when we mount the plow.

    Believe it or not this is my main driveway truck and it makes more then the F550 and F350 doing commercial per hour.

    Yeah I will take a closer picture.

    I did it to push the log splitter around but we end up moving a lot of trailers around that way. Also use it with the lift for a small carrier for my plate compactor and other things.

    I was going to better brace it back to set up a winch. but I ended up giving it to my brother for his Jeep.

    I wish I had pix of my old 65' F-100 with what I think was one of the original Speedcast plows on it. Man that old truck was a beast, a 300 six cylinder with a 4 speed and old bias ply snow tires.The epitomy of a NE truck.

    Best truck I ever plowed with was a 1991 Dodge W250 Cummins Reg. Cab with an 8' conventional Speed Caster electric/hydro with a sno-foil. Not the most comfortable truck, but it was a beast and the Fisher was built like a rock.
