    What spares do you guys have for your plows - shop or in the truck? I've got a 8'6" Fisher EZ-V if it makes a difference.

    ive been wanting to beef up with some spare parts, mainly hoses, fittings, seals, stuff like that. definately would be awesome to have a pump and a blade lying around, but that may be overkill for my situation lol. good stuff tho, nice inventory :)

    This season I made sure to have spare fasteners of each size required, never know when you may bust one.
