    Does the big steel snow foil make it difficult to stack effectively?

    Ran one on a Fisher for nine years, no problem stacking!

    We ran a steel deflector on an older 7.5. the only problem we had was that it lifted the plow off the ground in 1 foot + snow falls.

    I apalogize to any one i might have made mad. I would still like to use the site and hopfully learn some stuff. Went through some ruff times the past couple of weeks but thats in the past and snow is in the future so with that said.... LETS GET READY FOR A RECORD HIGH SNOW FALL YEAR.... hopefully.

    See the same thing at times. Foil wants to lift the blade in big piles. For anything other than higher speeds a rubber deflector is the way to go.

    We actually had some 14 highway plows that the moldboards were shaped like a question mark instead of a C. In large storms they would lift the blades right off the ground when straight bladiing, we had to cut them and make the moldboards like a C. Sorry a little off topic but it made me think of it.

    No prob... personally i think the rubber deflectors look the best. It breaks up all the yellow and makes the fisher splatter stand out more... if its still there.
