    8' Boss Trip Edge
    8' Fisher HD

    Has anyone owned both of these two plows?
    How does the Boss Trip Edge match up to the Fisher's?

    Both will scrape and backdrag like crap due to the shallow attack angle on the trip edge in comparison to the steeper attack angle on a full trip or an X-blade. Both are comparable in physical strength and routine service. The Boss will be quicker, and smoother during transit. Also easier to attach/detach as long as the ground is reasonably level. The Boss will be less expensive and easier to swap to the next truck in the future. You'd also be able to hitch to and operate any RT3 plow out there regardless of age, the Fisher you'll be limited to only a straight blade with the same plug configuration.

    The Boss wins in every aspect, don't waste your time with the fisher, just boss

    What makes the Boss so much better than the Fisher HD? Faster Hydro's?

    Hey everyone, im new to the world of plowing and was curious on your feedback. I have a F350 i plan on plowing with but have no idea what kind/size of plow to get. I have mostly residential accounts, only a handful of commercial. What do you guys recommend for a beginner?
