    saw on both the Western and Fisher facebook pages that they are releasing 18 new plow models. Anybody got some info? I am hoping Western starts making some stainless steel plows.

    I saw that too. I'm guessing the same as above, Stainless steel Vee and maybe Pro Plus, Vee with flared wings like everybody else has now days, poly Pro Plus, maybe something new in the "Heavy Weight" catagory, skid steer plow / push boxes.

    Like I siad, these are all just guesses; as a die hard Western fan, I'm excited to see the new stuff, but don't think it's gonna be anything too earth-shattering.

    On edit, I'm basically thinking it's gonna be anything that Boss has but Western deosn't, so add a trip edge straight plow and UTV / ATV plows.

    I think this is something that would be worth while for them, I know plenty of people with 550's that want bigger than an XLS or Wideout, but dont want to go to Blizzard.

    sounds like some great options. Figures I just bought a new dump truck and put a 9' pro plus plow on it. Wish I waited.

    Why would they change the center pin? The previous one was perfectly fine according to Mr M and company.

    Is that new Western Prodigy plow going to be available in a 9' size for trucks?

    I have been waiting for that type plow for my F-550 as the Western Wide Out only came as an 8' model, with a shorter molboard height, much too small for F-550 truck.

    When I got my newest F-550, I was seriously considering the Western Heavy Weight in a 10' size, but too much weight on the front end of an F-550. I have a 10' Heavy Weight on my FL-70 (33,00 GVW) Freightliner truck.

    I have been a Western customer for over 30 years.

    Thanks,
