Finally saw an X blade on a 03 ford f350. It has the Minute Mount 2 system on it. Anyone want to take a guess on price?


$6450!!!
Another thing the dealer showed me is it makes a terrible noise. Just tap the front of the blade and its wack bang. Theres already noise with the yellow HD;s and this is like double trouble.
Dealer advised against it and it was $3000 more than the yellow MM hd blade. All 8ft blades.

Wow, that's nearly twice the price of yellow plows! :eek: I remember that someone from other threads said that a Fisher reps said that the X-Blade would cost 10% more than the yellow plows. I thought that it would be an easy decision to go with the X-Blade to eliminate the need to repaint the plow and to strengthen the blade. Oh well. I'd rather spend a day repainting the plow than spend extra $3000.

I would venture to guess that the powder coating on steel blades would tend to dampen vibrations(noise) and this powder coating is absent from the stainless, more vibration, probably allowing it to have a ring to it.

That XBLADE price isn't anywhere near being accurate. The XBLADE does have a price about 10% higher than its regular 8' or 9' counterpart HD. That would only put about a $350 to $400 premium on it.

Shop around to some other Fisher distributors.

I was at the Marshfeild MA fair a month ago and they had one on display. The plow was 3600 installed. I can't remember the deakler though.
