    We just bought a 8'6" Fisher Extreme SS V blade and put it on our 06 F250SD. I have never used a V blade before what can I expect? Just the looks of it is intimidating,lol.

    You're going to love it! With the new control system, the new Fisher V is EXTREMELY versatile!

    Well if you have accounts that now take you 1 hour to plow...with the Vplow it will only take 40-45 minutes maybe!

    If you ever get a big storm and the state trucks plow in an entrance to a driveway you can put the plow in "V " postion and break through!

    When you get to the end you can almost stack the snow with the plow in the "scoop" position.

    Good luck have fun!

    We bought a gasser (5.4L) with a 4:10 limited slip differential and it has the snow plow prep package with the 5200lb front end. As far as the weight I don't think its any heavier than any other plow of that size. If so there's probably only a difference of 50lbs or so. The dealer said I can hang a 9'2 on it no problem. I went with the Fish Stick controller and man is it quick!:nod: I paid $5151.00 plus 6% tax, so around $5400'ish. I get it installed this Thursday so I don't know how bad it will sag if at all. I'll let you know.
