    I took a ride up to MA this weekend to buy a "new" used plow for my Jimmy. Once I got into Massachusetts ALL I SAW where Fisher plows and every 4X4 pickup had a Fisher mount! I thought I died and went to heaven! :D

    Almost EVERYBODY has a fisher around here and TONS of people have plows, theres about ten on my small street. Youre right you see a fisher mount on most 4x4's 1/2 ton and up but mainly 250/350s. Curtis is starting to get a little more popular around here because they are located in worcester, ma. SIPLOWGUY where in MA?

    I took I-95 to I-495 to I-140. Round trip: 457 miles. 4 hours going, 6 hours coming home. 2 hours of traffic in CT. I left my house at 0450 hours and pulled in my driveway at 1650 hours. 12 hours on the nose! It was worth it! I love my new Fisher! Too bad the season is over. :(

    Fishers are great plows. I got a curtis because i liked their low profile mount better then fishers and i liked the plow alot when i used my friends.

    About the only people who have Fishers around here are the city boys. Mostly Boss and Western here.:waving:

    Well considering that Fishers are made in Rockland Maine, it isn't far from the MFG.

    Had my Curtis 4 years had 0 problems. Replaced 1 cutting edge. Do large commercial lots. The guy I sub off of says "next time do yourself a favor and buy a fisher."I really like my curtis.

    tell him if he really wants you to have a fisher, he has to buy you one! Otherwise, find customers who like Fishers.

    Remember, when you buy a drill, you don't want the drill, you want the hole.

    I don't think that Curtis dealer is in Bellingham, MA any longer. I went by there before I bought my Fisher and they said they don't deal with any plow companies.

    I am in central Vt. So many fishers around here that I didn't realize they still made those other brands, ha,ha. I'm sure it has a lot to do with our close proximaty to rockland,maine.
