    Does anyone know the weight difference between an 8' Fisher (current) and a 8.5' Western plow blade? Just the blade..not the lift assembly or the vehicle mount.

    8.5 Western Pro is around #626 for blade, Aframe, Quadrant, Cyls and Pump/headgear according to specs from western.

    Pump and headgear come in around 150# so the blade asm would be around #475.

    Maybe a Fisher dealer can hepe more on the weights there. I don't have current catalogs on specs for the MM2 mounting system and I know they increased the plow strength and from what I saw the weight a little too.

    Hope this was some help
