    I'm looking around for the rubber fllaps for the top of the plows. Fisher wants a million dollars for it. so i'm looking for the cheap way to go. where can i get one of these for a 9 foot fisher? thank you.

    rubber flap

    look for a commercial conveyor company in your area and ask for any broken belts you will be doing them a favor by taking one or two off there hands if they have any . you are looking for the type that handle demolition debris or crush concrete if you can find one they are perfect for what you are trying to use it for. good luck happy hunting !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Try Northerntool.com
    they have them under item 10385 for $62.00 AND they have those plow wings everyone raves about for $190 (instead of the going rate of $220)

    I have conveyer belting myself only because I happened to fall on an old one.

    they said "coming soon" at the centeral place. does anyone know what the thickness and width of the northern tool deflector is? i'm hoping like 12" wide and like 3/8"-1/2" thick.

    deflector

    thinking about it more the best thing you could put on that plow is the snowfoil made by fisher it is great at stacking and nothing ever comes over the top and really gets the snow rolling on long passes. just my two cents...

    I got a piece of 8 foot x 4 inch, 1/8th inch plate from a local machine shop that I happened to know, I figured if I needed there was enough room I could add a bend to one edge to hold the rubber down at an angle if it tended to ride up with the snow load.

    You could return it to northern if you aren;t happy- would cost you shipping tho.

    you could also check for a tech supprt number and ask the techs to check out the thickness for it. I used to order through their commercial supply end when my father had his own business- saved me some money and was easier to get things delivered (like my 55gal hitch sander that came broken truck freight)That end has a tech number so I expect the retail end will too.

    BTW It cost me $20 for the steel at his cost I haven;t bought the SS bolts yet...

    I go to my local gravel quariies and ask for scrap peices of rubber belting. They will usually give them away for free. Then i go to Farm and Fleet or Menards and buy 2 peices of 1/4"x1"x4' flatstock. I think this last deflector cost me $6.

    I just bought a light from here. They seem to have reasonable prices on most things.

    Plus it shipped the same day, and free shipping for my order.

    www.anchorrubber.com this place is great! i called them weds morning and asked them how much. so they gave me the quote with shipping and everything. The guy told me that if i called back early enough he could ship it out on weds. so i called back about an hour later and ordered the stuff. well the cool thing is i came yesterday night. 7.92 worth of shipping it came over night. now thats service! just figured i'd let everyone know they are fast.
