    Is there any difference between a Western electric pump that mounts on the conventional upright and/or the controls versus the same style Fisher? Looking at either the full electric or the electric/cable and found a couple for a fair price that are Western though I currently have a full hydraulic Fisher setup.

    Western lift cylinders are 6 inch and full size Fishers are 10 inch.

    when comparing apples to apples? Because I know the Fisher comes in two sizes, one for the 6-7ft (I think) plows and then the 10" for the 7.5'+ ones...

    yes the western are short lift ram.

    some old style light duty mini vehicle plows used same short lift ram.

    but the rest of the big plows like 7ft or 7ft 6" - up got the big lift ram.

    and since dd comp owns fisher/western and now blizzard lots of old western and fisher stuff was easy to swap around.
