    In 2006 I purchased a new truck and had installed a new 8ft Fisher MM2. This year I had a few problems with it such as freezing up twice. Each time back to the Fisher dealer. I have met several people who own Fishers and installed there's just about the same time I did. They to have also had troubles with freezing pumps,burnt out motors,and rotted reservoir.
    I have owned Fisher plows for 30years and never had any troubles with any of them until now. What's going on? Anyone else having or had trouble with a Fisher of the same age?

    my boss has an '04 model xblade and it froze up on him a couple times but in all reality he doesn't like doing maintenance like changing fluid my '04 hd that i just bought used in Jan. has treated me very well no problems this year. i ran ATF all this year and it performed flawlessly and it has the original motor on it
