    I have an 8 1/2' Xtreme V MS and was wondering if the optional blade stops were worth the money.My thoughts are if they help protect the blade they should be on there from the factory. I'm quessing they help protect the angling cyclinders.I don't know for sure,thats why I'm asking on here.

    Yeah they are an option, not an included component, I think everyone was thinking of the upward bump stops that are included in two different lengths. I've never had any dealings with them....I don't even think I know anyone that is using them. I'm guessing here, but I think these were intended for the larger Med. Duty trucks....6500's, 4700 Internationals and so forth, so the blades wouldn't hit the trucks.

    I thought those originally came with the 9'6" so the blade wings wouldn't hit the truck in V mode

    I just checked the parts list and Install guides...they list them as
    . It make complete sense though.

    , I will have to check with a buddy of mine who has one- unless someone with a 9'6" can chime in. The 8'6" doesn't need it

    get them or you will be replacing modules as soon as someone hits something hard. theres 4 bolts that connect the plow a frame by the push plates that tend to wear. Once those 4 wear u can move the plow in v position and it will swing side to side. eventually the chain will destroy the motor and module. I had no blade stops installed at the time, apparently it was supposed to have them and i got them from the dealer. this is a 9.6' extreme v on a F550.

    My 9'6" EZV had those stops as does my new plow (non Fisher obviously). I always thought they were there to protect the cylinders from absorbing the impact while angling.

    The way it looks to me. The blade stops, stop the blade to help protect the angling cyclinders from damage when they bottom out when you hit something.

    Wanted to bump this old thread and see if anyone has since replaced angle cylinders. I ask because the stops are supposed to be standard on 9'6'' and my plow (purchased new last year) don't have them. I'm going to address this with the dealer but has anyone without the stops had cylinders fail?
