    My brother had one for 8 years. It was a great plow. I wouldnt mind one for my truck but it came with an HD.
  3. If I could buy another plow today I would go with a 9 2 fisher ss xblade :)

    I have thought about dealer support. There's quite a few fisher and plenty of western dealers around me. I know most of the parts are interchangeable.

    I believe that's one of the most important things, I run Meyer plows and Meyer is 10 min away from me and during big storms they will be open all day and get you in and out in a flash.
