    I would like to know as well. I have a 2000 F550 with fisher push plates and am trying to figure out how to mount the leaf loader on the front of the truck.

    well if you have the leaf loader mounted on a platform that is all set to go into a 2" reciever, then you need to find an fisher plow and cut the pieces off that go into the push plates and put a heavy bar across the front with a 2" reciever on it so you can mount your leaf loader, or just mount the fisher plow arms or whatever you wanna call them to you leaf loader. mounting the plates to the bottom of the platform the leaf loader is on would probably be best.
