    Yeah, that's the same. I would buy from the guy that can service it for you. I had a couple of problems early on with mine, I was glad I bought from a plow shop. I'm not sure that an auto dealer service dept would be as familiar with the equipment and have the pull with the tech departments. I would think you could get the price matched on the Fisher. Remember, you are using this to make money.

    the fisher dealer in salem recommends this deal lol its a lil closer not by much and we also go through different company's to work on our stuff unless there covered under warranty aka welding shops our own part-time mechanic who works for the town full time for the small stuff (hes cheap) and our own full time diesel mechanic for the big stuff (hes expensive but damn he could do anything). we looked at the place right down the road but there insane they want like 4995 for the poly caster so the only thing we use them for is parts since they're close and we can get parts in a middle of a storm
