    Is it a 250 or 150? It says 250 in the thread title but 150 in the actual post.

    If he wants a Fisher:
    F-150= Fisher RD 7'6"
    F-250= Fisher HD 8'

    Good Luck!

    The truck is a 2000 F-150, with a bed is an 8' box, a regular cab, and has a Triton 4.6L, I don't know why the title said 250 homesteader, but I was looking at a Fisher hometead. As for plowing, he will be plowing his driveway, and a few other people on the block. I don't deal with trucks this small, so when he asked me to find him a plow, I was a little worried.. I know I would never do anything without a fisher, as I have dealt with them for 30 years. I think he feels the same way.
