    I'm not going with a 9' because mine is a 3500 single rear wheel and not a dually, like my friends, which is why he went 9'. Plus I don't need the hassle of trying to manuever around town (lots of traffic around me) with that huge blade. I'll have to get a side picture and post it.

    I'd go with the 8'6" if I were you. Though the 9' isn't all that big. As for driving in traffic,....You are transporting it fully angled, right?

    Town & state trucks drive around with plows at least 8 times the width of those. :p

    I know a guy who has a 3500 Chevy with no dual wheels, and it plows excellent, he does commercial plowing.

    True I could drive with the blade angled, which I normally do anyway, but I also may have a deal on an 8'. Either way, 8' or 9', nothing plows like an X-Blade.

    Hey Brian,
    I'm in Morris Plains, which is right next door to Morristown. I haven't gotten the X yet, but when I do I'll let you know.

    I love fisher plows! As far as I'm concerned I don't know why people waste money on anything else. My latest is an 8.5' V plow. Thats what you want, it is so useful in so many situations. Plus you can transport fully open, its easier then an 8 footer.

    I'm hoping you're right about the x-blade. That's the reason I bought one. Looks like I might get a chance to try it out this week as they're calling for lake effect over the next couple of days. Can't wait to see how it performs!

    Hey maurader,
    The X-Blade plows real nice, especially when plowing deep and/or hard packed snow. Put it to you this way, myself and the contractor I work for, bought Blizzard 810s last year, while a friend of ours, who also plows with us, bought a 9' X-Blade. By the end of the first storm, we (the Blizzard owners) wished we had bought X-Blades.
