    I have a Meyers now and have used them since I started plowing (5 years) But now that I have tried out my friend's truck with a Boss, I am sold on the Boss and will be replacing my meyer with a Boss. So, hands down, my favorite is Boss:)

    Best Plow

    Boss V blade. I got a 9'2" poly vee. Paid xtra for the poly but I'm not sure it was worth it. The blade doesn't rust but the shop I got from said the poly is slicker than steel so the snow won't stick. I even believed him!! Whata DA:dizzy: It was slick for a while but after a gazillion hours of pushing snow all the grit in the snow sanded the poly so now the snow does stick. No huge deal just a minor thing to weigh in on your plow choice. I'd love to try a Blizzard but I have too many 1/2 mile plus roads in open country that drift too tight for me to give up my Vee.

    I've got 2 favs right now. My new Fisher 9.5 Extreme V and my Blizzard 810. They both have there advantages but I can't pick between them.

    I love Boss! The only others I would consider would be a Blizzard 810 or a Fisher 9.5 Xtreme-V stainless. But it would take some time to make me switch.:nod:

    Fisher all the way! I think I'd enjoy a Fisher Xtreme V for the next truck.

    After using Fishers, Westerns, Meyers & Boss for 6 years prior to buying a Boss, its pretty obvious which brand i chose. Out of the other 3 ive used i wouldve gone with a Fisher only if it was faster. The Boss is boss!

    They all seem to have their advantages. Some areas it pays to have a Meyers, because parts are easy to come by. atleast around here they are. When it comes to Western or Boss. I've heard that parts are kinda hard to come by. I do agree with the fact that Meyers can definitely be a pita but easy to fix.

    I've owned everything but a Blizzard or Boss

    Fisher is Fisher and always will be at the top of my list, but Boss and Blizzard have some great features!, I wish Fisher would adopt some of their ideas.

    Meyers Products are decent in my opinion, I like the Diamond trip edge blades, The Curtis has the best hook up features, Boss is close, but not quite there in my opinion.

    I would love to see a Fisher Trip edge blade with extention wings like a Blizzard, the attack angles of a Diamond the speed and down pressure the Boss, the ease of attaching the Hitch & Run system of the Curtis with the Lift frame and famous triangle of a Minute Mount 1

    Well if Douglas Dynamics keeps going, maybe in ten years there will be what I described out there! lol

    my favorites are our meyer HM 9 and the HM 10 they are built so heavy and durable they make our westerns and our meyer "c" series look like toys.

    Fisher on all but one truck, so I guess fisher.
    We have an old meyers blade on the 85 chev, but with a fisher under the hood pump and valve body. And that blade is solid.

    GTMS.... what do you think about the newest Xtreme-V? Doesn't it seem to capture all the best components of Fisher AND some newer ideas like the higher ends? Personally never used the X-blade, and I don't know if the extra weight will be worth anything, but I'm up for trying!
