Why no applications for "W" series trucks??

    If the Fisher rep is listening, I'm just wondering why it is so difficult to find a plow application for a GMC W4500 I want to buy. I have a Fisher on a Dodge 3500 with a Cummins and like it, how come Fisher doesn't have an app for those cabover style trucks?

    It's just a business decision that we've made not to make a mount for this particular application, which is pretty unique. It's a 2WD cab-over. As a result, very limited demand for it which makes it difficult to justify the engineering development and maintenance costs. In instances such as this, we make available a Universal Mounting kit which can be custom fabricated for this application. Since it does require custom fabrication, not all distributors choose to do this particular application. I'd be more then happy to try and locate a dealer near you that does have the expertise to do so however.
