    Looks great, let us know on a possible price tag, if your thinking of fabricating more or one for myself with no holes drilled for mounting hardware, i run a 8' snowdogg ex80 so the mounting holes may be different from the fisher to a dogg, or i'll just give ya etc "end to center" numbers for the hardware holes. thanks

    the problem is that if your plow is not at the same angle on the top as an X blade then it would change the angle on the roll as far as making them it not that bad but they would need to be 2 pieces like a fisher for shipping them I would need 3 or 4 people to to want them to make it cost affordable cause stainless is costly I could make them one piece like mine for local pick up

    Let me know how it works and holds up. I have 4 9' Xblades and I would be interested in one or more to try.

    only thing i see is need bigger gussets like the fisher units. i bet it will bend easy over a short time.

    looks good tho. payup
