out of stock

i looked at ebay and looks like you sold your last one. i had looked at your web page several times this week but it said you were out of stock. i am a little reluctant to put one on if it effects stacking. i do more driveways where stacking the snow is more of an issue than spray over when straight plowing.

I hae rubber deflectors on my 8'6" Fisher V. They work great on roads and don't affect stacking at all. I bought Fisher brand from WA Messer.

I used a sno-foil for a while on my fisher 8'. Didn't like it at all. The plow always rode up when it filled with snow, it really didn't keep much snow off the window, and it added almost a foot of length. Made it a lot harder to manuver in tight driveways. I ended up buying the deflector for the fisher and added a 6" rubber strip. The 6" strip isn't big enough, but it does the job.

somebody just did a buy it now, sorry, saturday my new spool of 9" will be in and about a week later for the 12"

if you were the one that e-mailed me about the poly ones my reply was that they can break if you stack real hard, the rubber just folds out of the way

I use one on my blazer and have actually had better results when stacking than without one. The piles I make and climb up into are higher than before, and I also have not gotten stuck since the deflector holds the snow in front of the blade more than my old blade that did not have one. So far I am getting 8-10' piles with no problems or worries about hanging the blade up in the pile. I am sure after I change my tires I will be abel to drve up into the piles further allowing me to stack higher- this will come in handy in some places that are limited space for snow!

We use the Fisher Sno-Foil as we mostly plow parking lots and roadways. I've tried poly ( on a Meyer ) rubber, ( as in the above pictures) and for our use, think the metal Sno-Foil works the best.

Yes John, the problem is that we wear out the front end components of the F-250 every year! I don't think Ford designed them for that much weight!!!!!:haha

Can you put a rubber deflector on a V blade ? I know the purpose of the V balde is not to use it straight.

If the rubber is cut in the centre to allow the blade to fold wont the snow find the weak spot and spill out there?

Yes,you can run one on a V-blade.You can leave the center just cut,or make a flap the cover the gap in the middle.

Here is a shot of Johnny D's Ram with his Boss V,and the rubber deflector
