Fisher blades

I was reading Fisher's 2001 kit guidebook(good info) and they had a table listing the blade weights. There were "L" series and "M" series blades.

These are NOT the L for light duty, R for regular duty and H for heavy duty designators. Does anyone know what the difference is? The "M" series blades appear to be about 50lbs lighter than the "L" series.

I beleive that these letters are for the first years of the first generation of Minute Mount Plows. All my blades have been repainted but I seem to remeber seeing H and L Blades on the stickers. Maybe talk to a dealer or e-mail Fisher for more info.

DaveO - From reading the tech info on the Fisher site it looks like the lighter blade (M model) is with the new Minute Mount II. I had heard that the blade was going to be redesigned. Partly to be lighter. If I remember right, you're going to be able to use a wider blade for some applications - ie: 8' where now you're limited to a 7.5'.

Thanx for the feedback. Mick, it seems you hit it right. Fisher has redesigned their blades for this season. If you look at the assembly info on them, it shows supports in different areas than before. It appears that weight savings was the target.

Like Mick stated, this is so you can use larger blades on some trucks. On my '01 diesel sb xcab ram, it was spec'd for the 7.5ft blade ONLY last year(FAWR legalities). With this new blade series, the same truck can carry up to a 9ft blade without concern.

The Vblade could still put it over the FAWR however....
