    Just brought home my new 9.5 Xtreme-V Blade home. Very nice plow. Very heavy duty construction, fast hydraulics, nice attack angle and just looks awesome. The only thing I don't like about it is the raise height. Doen't raise that high off ground with those stoppers, unlike like my other Fisher plows, especially my other X-Blades which go very high.

    Rob, My dealer replaced the stops on mine. When he first put the plow on the truck it would only get 2" off the ground in V position. He then replaced the inverted v shaped stops with half round stops and the plow raised a good 6" higher. I should have asked why it came from the factory like that.

    Thanks for the info. Maybe I will do that too or ask dealer about it. I think it will bearly get over curbs.

    Just went on there website and saw that they offer long and short stops. I will ask dealer to put on the short ones if he can.

    It will depend on the vehicle. GM's can use the short stops. You have to watch that the moldboard can't come up when stacking and smack the lift unit :nono: . Learned this at F.A.S.T. school last week.

    I have a F550. Still the plow does not go very high. I am afraid that when stacking the truck will get stuck and put more pressure on frame with the long stops. I have not got a chance to ask dealer if they can put short one on. I don't think the plow will hit lift frame, there is plenty of room left. I thought all head gears were the same and pivot the same. So if they put short on chevy why not on others?

    All headgear kits are the same and they all come with the long stops. Which stop is used is up in the air until snowplow is installed and proper ballast is added in the rear. If it can lift higher without hitting the lift unit then the short stops could be used. Ask the dealer if they can check this for you.

    Just picked up 8'6" SS XtreamV blade and all components necessary to install on MM1 headgear for EZ-V. Haven't put it together yet but I will post some pics and give an update on assembly. So far everything measures out to fit. WOW! was it a lot more than I thought it would be $3,500 @ a discount from my dealer who said the total would have been about $3,900 at regular price.The same dealer who quoted me $2,000 on a new EZ-V blade assy less rams last year. It seems I am the first one to want to put the XV on a MM1/ EZ-V setup so they don't have a kit set up for it yet. That meant I had to buy pins,hyd fittings,plowgides,and bolts @ individual prices as well as the "T" Frame,pushplate and angle Rams that where ordered as parts.
    Well any info any body can offer would be appreciated or if any body else has tried it please let me know how much you paid and how it went.
