    SD is a heavier built plow, it has more ribs, longer angle rams, it is faster since it will come with the insta act pump. But it does weight around #70 more. Also should be about $400-600 more than the HT. The A frame is stronger on the SD. The only thing the two share is the push plates and wiring, everything else is different.
    The extra weight of the SD should help with back dragging also.
    Hope this helps.

    Have installed quite a few of both,when the SD is an option i always push for it,your getting way more plow for minimal weight,that and the jack system on the HT is a friggin joke.
    I would have to disagree with the backdragging statement though as the HT has the Scrape lock feature and actually cleans nice.

    I have said this many times, the SD is alot more rugged than the HT. The Fisher dealer toled me the "the HT is junk." I have never used an HT but, it looks realy light duty. The SD is real rugged for what it weighs. Last Winter I plowed a road acrost a 1/4 mile pasture and the plow held up great. SD hands down for me.

    I've heard nothing but good things about the SD plows.The headgear sits way to low on the HT compared to the SD plows.
