    Hello everyone,
    Just called up a dealer about fisher prices. I need something cheap, but wouldn't mind settling on $2,500 for everything installed. I'm gonna be doing around 10 residents, maybe less, maybe more.
    I have an 06 F350 single rear wheel

    I called up a local fisher dealer and he said the sd series would be too light for my truck. Is this true?? How could a plow be too light??

    Anyone live in MA know of a good place to get blades?

    On my f350 I notice when I put it from Drive to Reverse it takes a second to change and it hits when it gets in gear, is this normal for the 350s?

    The Fisher SD is to light for a F-350. If you get a Fisher it will have to be an HD or bigger. An 8' HD would be a good choise for your truck IMO.

    That is a big truck for driveways

    It weighs what, 7K-8K with a light plow you could bend it up like a pretzel and not even know it.

    Couple options. Head up to New Hampshire and save on taxes!
    Lange's corner garage in Rye, NH Top notch service and best prices or
    Donovan Equipment Co. Londonderry, NH

    I think a PlowSite member in Mass sells quite a bit of used fishers. Maybe someone can help with the name?

    Here is the guy that sells/sold refurbished Meyer and Diamond plows in MA. I think he does some Fisher also. Haven't noticed him online lately so I don't know if he still does this or now. Might try sending him a PM and see if he does.
