    How's this score for $150? 8' Fisher speed cast with everything needed to mount back onto a 1980's F350 or F250. Engine pump hydraulics and the nice old school lights. I got it off Ebay and pick it up later this afternoon. The funny thing is that I don't even have a truck for it :dizzy: But how do you go wrong for this price and 30 minutes from the house?

    Just picked it up. No idea what I am going to do with it yet. It's in pretty good shape, but it needs a good cleaning and a good paint job. No holes or dents and the cutting edge has a lot of life left.

    If you have a standard truck that plow will kick ass, I used one for 16 yrs like that.

    You definitely won on that deal! nice plow....depending on what year MM plow you get for your truck, you can use that blade as a replacement if the other one is junk.

    Thanks guys. It brings back memories of my plowin' days back home in Mass. This is all I used and they never ever let me down!! I'd like to find a mid 80's Ford 250 or 350, auto, reg cab and put a utility box on it and start a small welding business and/or mobil auto repair (light repairs only, you know, the stupid stuff you can do in the driveway). I got a ton of ideas :rolleyes:

    Nice! I scored 2 weeks ago...a Fisher 1000 that is 3-4 years old and only used for 1 season. It also came with a new controller and the receiver mount on it. I put a 40.00 bearing on the shaft and sanded it down and repainted the frame, it looks brand spankin' new literally. I stole it for 300.00 and I have about 95.00 into it with a bearing, paint and a couple of hours of my time.

    Well if you find the truck, you've got the plow for it already.

    I still plow heavily with my Fisher speedcast, I do about 50 drives and have never had any problems other than being slow.

    They can be slow and it can get annoying, but like I said, these plows never failed me once wesport . I'll deal with the slow operation, in exchange for the dependability. One of my plow trucks was an '89 F250 5 speed with the 300 6cyl. You could speed the plow up by raising the rpms. It was a little harder to do that in my automatic trucks, unless it was in neutral.

    Use two feet. One on the brake than tap the gas.

    :drinkup: I'll let ya know. If I want my money back

    I want to find a cheap F350. It can't be rotted, but it can need some work. I'll even put it on a F350 dually dump 2x4, but would prefer 4x4 for obvious reasons. If somebody has an F350 or F250 in the 1986 era for short money, let me know.
