• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

many thanks to Chuck Smith

As a end user and advocate of urethane edges, I want to personally thank Chuck Smith for his article in the latest issue of Snow Business Magazine. Not only was the infomation correct, but very well researched, showing once again that Chuck is very astute in not only the lexicon of snow removal but in all faccets of the aftermarket area as well.
I hope that his prediction that most plows will be running urethane in the future is correct. Not only will that mean more sales for all urethane companies, but that individuals are willing to try new products. Whether it be u edges or any other type of new product, having the forsite and intestinal fortitude to try things where others wont will make not only make the end users ahead of their competition, but advance the industry at an even greater speed then where we are at now.
Furthermore, less damage will be done to road surfaces, vehicles, and plows, which will mean a longer usefull life for these large ticket items.
Again thanks to Chuck for the well writting piece, and I look forward to his column in future issues.

Bravo to not only Chuck's article but also every other page of the Snow Business magazine. I got my first copy in the mail last week and have enjoyed every ounce of information that it has provided. Definitely what i have been looking to see come from the snow industry for years (talking of a publication on the snow removal industry)

Just a question... When did the Nov. issue come out.... I usually get it in the mail and didn't get this one yet... I hope it is coming in the mail soon.

Mine just came today. Yes, we have regular mail service (every day) and they don't use dog sleds. Although for the next road up from me, they would be better off.

Well i got mine today and I have to say that their is some very helpfull information in their on choosing the right plow for your truck.. I just have one question though does a Fisher 9.5' EZ-V only weigh in at 930 lbs? I thought that it would be up with the Western 9.5' MVP that weighs 1049 lbs. Maybe i just have it mixed up... I have to say it has a lot of good info in it.
Thanks

Alot of that weight may be in the different lift frames that each uses. Also maybe not for the V but I think Fisher was experimenting with alloys that would reduce the weight, by allowing a thinner guage steel, on the moldboards.

When fisher lists weights they do not include the truck side of the frame kit, as that will vary from truck maker. However I do think that the ultramount from western will weigh a bit more than the MM2.
If you take the blade assemblies alone, they would be very close in weight. I would say within 10-20 lbs of each other.
