    I voted for Fisher, but use a Western. I really took a liking to Fisher over the passed year or so. As you all know, Western and Fisher are my 2 favorites. I think if I ever bought a new truck, I would put a Fisher on it, just as a change. Mike

    If were going by popularity, around here its Fisher, Meyer, and Western, not in that order neccasarily. I couldnt say which I think is THEE most popular, I see the above mentioned three all the time and it seems its pretty equally divided around here. Mike

    No vote for Blizzard yet Howard:D
    popular doesn't mean best,the best plow is the one with the best local dealer support which changes from town to town,could be Fisher here or Boss 45 min away.

    Depends on what area you are in, Here i would say Western is the most popular and then Meyer :cry: then Boss but If you go to Mane bet Fisher would be the most popular.

    In my area the most popular plow is fisher then i would say western,boss,meyer and in the past year i have been seeing a lot of curtis plows.I personally like fishers they are built strong and scrape really good.Only drawback is they are probably a little harder on the frame of the plow trucks.

    In these parts there is Western, Meyer, Fisher, and Blizzard dealers within a 20 minute drive of my house. Id have to say that Fishers do dominate the land here though.

    I voted for Blizzard, because it is my personal pick. If you want to know reality as far as what plows people around here use, then it would be Meyer and Western first, then Fisher, then Boss. But just wait until after this season when the competition sees how much work I get done with my Blizzard!

    (Howard-- no, we did not buy one from someone else, just getting all our ducks in a row before we call you to order it!!!)

    Around my area it seems to be Fisher as the most popular. Thats pretty much all I see then Boss and Curtis. But like you all said it depends on the local dealers and what everyone else uses.

    since visiting this site ive taken notice to what kind of mount i see on trucks meyers is the most popular in the phila area i think that because almost every car dealer has them mounted on their new trucks
    plus the meyers dealer is only 5 minutes from my house

    It does seem as though many new trucks are upfitted with Meyer's before delivery to new truck dealers. If you buy a Bargain news or Truck trader you will see many dealers with big lots of plow trucks lined up with Meyer's on them in the Northeast with a few Fishers and Westerns mixed in. The Ford Dealer right down the street from my house has had a few Fords with Fishers and Boss's on their lot each of the past two winters.

    Fisher snowplows is the domaint around here. There are still some old Meyers, and a few Western and SnoWay, but majority of plows are Fisher.

    Meyer is the most poular around my state from what I see.Evrey times it snows all you see are Meyer snow plows out there.Though I do like the mount for a western, it tends to sit deeper on the frame from what I was told.

    My observation

    In Delaware I would have to say it looks like Myers is the most popular. I will be one of the few with a Western.
