Great site here with a wealth of information for me with limited plowing experience. I just bought a '94 F150 4x4 with a 7.5' Fisher hydraulic plow. The truck is in excellent condition and has been modified for plowing with heavy service front springs. It seems to go down the road with no problems or drivability issues with the plow on the front. Any tips on plowing or information about the plow anyone can give me would be greately appreciated. I have heard half tons are not strong enough for plowing, but I have run half ton Fords through the toughest conditions with no problems (I also realize this subject has been beaten to death). Has anyone has any frame failures on a half ton as a result of (normal) plowing? I know the front end is a weak link, but the heavy springs should help considerably. I am up here in Maine where they hang a plow on just about anything (from yotas to bronco IIs to jeeps) so I think my truck will be fine.
