    I have an older fisher "speedcast" 7' plow that I took off of
    a 87 toyota 4x4 and adapted it to fit a 87 dodge ram 50,4x4 it works great
    but it realy weighed the front down, does anyone have any idea
    what this plow might weigh?

    I couldn't find any specs for it on Fisher's site or the net.

    But, the current Fisher LD 6'9" is 476# and the 7'6" is 487# so as a guess your old 7 footer is probably in this range of weight.

    John is probley right, it has to be in between the 2 weights he said. I don't know if they ever made a 7' exactly, maybe 6'9", but a firend of mine says he used to have a 7' fisher, maybe it was really 6'9". Nobody knows, fisher has to have the screwiest sizes over the years, they have changed them so much. Introduced x size, stoped production on y size. Crazy. We need someone to give us a full history of the fisher line, its got me confused.

    Those are weights for the complete assembly including hitch and all. I would put the blade weight at around 300lbs or so the total weight around 460lbs as the earlier speedcast models like yours were not as tall so total package is a bit lighter.

    Last years Fisher 760LD weighed 510lbs. I suspect that to cut cost over the years they've redesigned their plows to provide similar strength with less wieght so I wouldn't use this years specs. Maybe their tech support can help.
