    I heard that Fisher bought out Blizzard? They are rolling out with their version of the power plow next season. I saw a picture of it today...it looks sick! I already told my guy to hold one for me when they come into production. I'm just hoping they tested it enough before rolling it out.

    the New Fisher XLS series plow. X-pandable Length Snowplow. is going to be available for this upcoming season.
    Width retracted 96 in
    Width expanded 120 in
    Width scoop 106 in
    Width @ full angle 86"/108"/95"
    Height 29"
    Blade and Wings 12 gage steel
    Cutting edge optional 1/2 x 6 top punch
    Plow weight 1000 lb
    Pricing has not been released as of yet. I expect to see it next week.
    It is using a similar power pack to this years Extreme V with diferent valveing.
    It still is a TRIP EDGE FISHER PLOW not a trip blade as the blizzard is and it still hooks up to the mintue mount truck mounts.
    Western has there own version called the Wide OUT, this plow is a trip blade design that also uses the DD built hyd pack and the Western Ultra mount system.Same Width and height as the Fisher but weighs 45 lb less.
    Hope this info helps.

    Fisher had one at one of the local dealers showing it off last week, if I wasnt in a rush to get back home I would have stopped, It looked sweet, no only if they would combine the Xblade and the Power wings we'd be in business:gunsfiring: :gunsfiring: :gunsfiring:

    Me I DONO? I figure a streight 8ft blade does a pretty Good JOB! as I also Figure? this New Expandable is just more Problems? 2 extra Cyls Hoses & cutting edges & Not really Gaining all that much? $$ wise! or Efficentcy so Why bother? as even ON large Lots a Couple of extra Pushes? would OFF set the $$ investment as I Figure? If You DO Hit some thing? & WE all DO! especially w/ the Outer Edges? Big Bucks in Repairs! & I personally think? the MM mount Sucks Big Time! as I have three streight Blade Fishers & I*M Happy w/ Them as I*LL wait & SEE? how this New Fancy Plow Works? & in the mean TIME I*LL look for a NOW!!
