    What was the cause of the gentlemen who created/owned Fisher to split and the other guy to start making Diamond plows? I am just curious as I have recently picked up an older fully hydraulic Diamond plow ( works and plows GREAT ) and am just interested in the history of the split.

    This is actually the first I have ever heard of Fisher being a joint company and one guy going off to make Diamond. Never knew that. My guess is it was just like any other partnership and had a lot of differences that couldn't be worked out.

    What kind of truck is the Diamond hydraulic/hydraulic on?

    I knew there was a relation somewhere cause I have an old 8 foot diamond plow (heavy) that I got off of a chevy dealership yard truck. This plow fits my old style fisher mount perfectly on my 85K-10.

    It is on a 1991 GMC Sierra 2500...had this baby since I bought it new. I just recently decided to put a plow set up on it and found the Diamond in the local want ads rather cheap...so I picked it up...works WONDERFULLY! I decided to uy it just in case my 2005 Ram with a Western Uni-mount ever broke down....plowing with the Diamond is very nice!
