    I have a 04 GMC 2500HD extended cab with a 8' HD fisher. I am just doing my own (very long) gravel driveway. I read in another thread that poly was better for gravel. Any thoughts on this? Are they available for fishers?
    p.s. Just got a Line-x put in. Absolutely awesome.
    Thanks

    About everything I plow is gravel and I use a steel cutting edge. I would think the poly would wear out very fast on gravel but I don't really know. The trick to gravel is to let the first snowfall of the season get packed down rather than plowing it. This gives you a good base so that you are not plowing gravel all winter.

    The trick too is the set the shoes about as low as they will go too (raising cutting edge) when plowing gravel lots and lanes. Fisher is a very good choice for this and stick with steel moldboard too for this (even though Fisher does not make a poly plow at the moment)
