    I am new to plowing for myself, and have always worked for another co. I want to put a good plow on my 2006 F350 diesel pickup, it is auto , 4x4 and has plow prep package, also it is an extended cab, shortbed. I have been considering a fisher 8ft minute mount, quoted 5000 plus tax installed, and 4600 plus tax installed. any suggestions, perhaps better prices. I was considering used for under 2000, so I was told. Any suggestions welcome.


    Also, what are competitive hourly rates for subing and how to bid small commercial lots, like gas stations or markets,

    thanks again,

    if your gonna spend that kind of money get an xblade. scrapes nicer than the HDs and backdrags amazing. you could however find a nice used 8 foot HD like u said. there are alot of those plows around i would look now if thats the route u go.

    5000 for an 8ft straight? The dealer a couple towns away from me is 5075 for an xls.... I doubt thats installed but still I would spend the extra money for something bigger and better if you are going to buy new. Like Grandview said, V is also an option.

    All opinion. Think of it this way too, do you want a lift chain or direct lift?

    Western 8.5 or 9.5 V is the way to go. If its contract work your doing go with a wideout, or ask for more $$$ if working as a sub. FYI-Our subs get paid more for a Wideout than a V, and we dont entertain anyone with a straight blade.
