    Hi guys, new to this site. seems like a bunch of good info here. just a quick question - i'm looking to buy a used fisher extreme v 8.5. i noticed our plows at work are a 8.6 with insta-lock cylenders, did fisher change from a 8.5 to a 8.6 in the last year or so, i think the plow i am looking at came of a 2011 truck, and do the older plows still have the insta-lock cylendars for back dragging. thanks for the info.

    8.5 is equal to 8.6, just different ways to say it. 8.5 feet, 8 1/2 feet, 8'6'', 8.6, etc.

    Insta-Locks are standard on all XVs I believe.

    insta-lock has been around on the extreme v's since it was created

    I have a 2012 8'6 stainless v. Factory rubber flap and factory backdrag edges. PM me if you are looking for a brand new plow. I have the factory manuals and books.
