    I'v got an '04 2500 HD ext. cab with the Duramax and it needs a plow. I'm trying to decide between a Fisher 8' HD, Meyers 8' EZ-mount plus, or the Boss Superduty 8'. Any input would be appreciated.

    P.S. Good luck to you fellas in western NY.:drinkup:

    Boss

    We just bought a new Boss 7.6 and I was impressed with the mount/dismount. There is a marker for lining it up already on the lights. It comes with the hand held controller standard. For a few dollars difference we went with the boss because the dealer is great. We didn't quite have all the cash and they told us to put half down, intall the plow and make two more equal payment by 12/15 and it's yours....really can't beat that!

    I have been back and forth and up and down,left and right about a new plow,lol. I finally decided on a Fisher 8"6" Extreme V SS. I liked it because of these reasons: Trip edge design, mechanical simple hook up (no electric or hydraulic's to fail while hooking up or taking off) its stainless steel and the speed of this thing is amazing. I didn't like the Boss V blade because it didn't trip in v or scoop, I didn't like the Blizzard speed wing because I've heard and seen their paint jobs don't last (neat consept though). The Fisher was more money but I think in a couple years it will pay for itself. imo.

    Plan on installing it yourself. Then get what you want or need. The diesel motors knock the DMAX out if your a crew cab, and only offer a 7.5 if your an ec or rc. I would definitely get the minimum of an 8 footer no matter what. I'm a Fisher fan myself.

    Well i guess I will put my opinion in here...I am a Western Fan....We have run Westerns for years, and up until this year we had a western that was 14 years old...I run an 8ft pro plus, dads got an 8'6" MVP, and the guys that plow with us run westerns...It depends on preference...all plows work, some better than others some hold up better...just my .02 :drinkup:

    I like Fisher's, but the only problem is price. I'm getting quoted almost $1000 more for the Fisher's than the Boss or Meyers.:eek: I want to know if the Boss or Meyers will hold up to commercial plowing.

    Western or fisher is your best bet.

    Meyer is the worst plow you can buy. People buy them because they are cheap. Then can't figure out why they break so easily.

    Buy a Boss Super or Super Trip Edge

    I sold as well as used plows for 11 years and you will not find a tougher longer lasting plow than a BOSS. I've seen them all in action and in the shop! Just being straight up honest with you, I don't sell equipment any more. Boss's super duty plows and especially super duty trip edge plows are indestructible. Good Luck!
