    I am looking to install a straight blade plow on a 2001 F350 Super Duty Diesel for limited private use plowing 80% blacktop in fair condition and 20% dirt. My local Western dealer wants $4195 for an 8 Foot Ultra Mount Pro blade installed. He also offered an 8 foot Fisher for $4395 installed. My local Boss dealer wants $4786 for an 8 foot Straight Blade Steel plow. They seem very similar to me, I'm wondering is the Boss worth $591 more? Any major pros or cons between the two? Thanks for any input.

    Did you look into a used plow? You can save a ton of money and still get a quality plow for what your needs are. Just my .02. Do a search on each brand for more info. I'm partial to the Fisher but Western and Boss make good units too. Good luck.

    You need to see which dealer offers better parts, service and support. Thats way more important then price to me.

    The boss plows are good plows, not my cup of tea but that's because I know meyer pumps. Just about everyone out ther makes good equipment, just make sure the dealers in your area have good service. That is VERY imoportant. You could have the best plow in the world, if you can't get parts, service, or help fixing it, what good is it? Mike
