    Looking at replacing my straight blade plow with a V, I'm not sure whether to go with the 8'6" X-treme V or the Meyer Super V, both plows look like great V's, it will probably come down to price, anyone have the 8'6" X-treme, about how much does it cost? and how does it perform, I wiill be installing it on a '04 2500hd, thanks for any info you can provide.

    I have the 9.5 SS Extreme V on my F 350 dump. I have also have the MM2 version of the V on one of two of my other trucks. I love the new Extreme, (haven't used it yet though) but the hydrolics are very fast and the new lights are nice and bright. The attack angle is like the X-Blade so I am hoping it will scrape better than the other V's I have. I paid $4850 installed.

    $4850 sounds pretty good, I have a Boss dealer out here that wants $5200 for a 8'2" V, and I think the X-treme is a better built plow than the boss.

    I looked at Boss too, alot more pricey around here. I have always gad good luck with my Fishers and the upgrades on the new X-V are great.

    Fisher V's Rule

    I just purchased three Fisher X V's on our fleet trucks at work. You won't be disappointed. Although we haven't used them yet, the other 4 trucks with the EZ v's from last year work awesome. I've had an EZ v for 4 years and love it.

    We just purchased a 9 1/2 Fisher xtremeV for our F550. I think is the best plow for size and weight. We've had fisher products since the 80's- never had issues just the regular wear and tear. Go for the xtreme V, you won't be disappointed.

    I have 1 F-350 with a regular X and 4 F-550's and I wouldn't put either one of the X or Extreme V's on either one. I think they are great plows but I have serious reservations as to how they would hold up to the abuse that a 550 with a sander or ballast will shell out. I am sticking with the M/C series on the 550's. We used to run the HD 9's on F-350's all of the time and we used to twist up the Aframes and stuff something fierce and I don't think the Extreme V's are much heavier than those.

    Got to use my 9.5 today for the first storm of the winter. Only 3.5 inches (maybe) but got the overall feel for it. I really noticed the speed of the hydralics, Fisher really speeded this thing up. The wings are very quick. It also scraps alot better than my MM2 EZV. The attack angle makes a huge difference even when back draging. Didn't leave any "trails" in the middle of the plow like other V's, clean-ed real nice. Over all I was impressed, we'll see what the season brings/

    Doesn't appear to have worn much at all (if any). I will keep an eye on it and post as the season continues.
