    Oops,my bad:eek:. Sorry for the repost. new here and just bought an '84 chevy with a 7'6" trip edge "Fully hydraulic?" Fisher. I used to plow commercially for a business using a tri axle truck and trip blade. My recently acquired truck is the first trip edge I've ever seen.Wish I wouldn't have hid under that rock for so many yrs.:D
    Thanks for the link

    I like the trip edge so far! I have a 7.5 fisher! Just watch for the curbs, they have been known to do some crazy stuff to them!

    Ok, my plow has not 2 not 4,but 3 springs on the trip,and as stated it is all hydraulic,not electric over hydraulic. The plow seems to be built really heavy,500-600# 'ish. any idea how old this unit might be? Has a few reinforcement welds on it already. thanks
