    9' straight blade

    8.5' V-Plow.

    Diamond and Fisher Are my Brand Choices.

    Pcs, around these parts an 8' Fisher is by far and away the most popular plow for a f-350 srw. This answer is going to vary a lot by geography though, so you can expect a lot of different plows to be mentioned.

    I would get the Fisher either 8.5' or 9' straight or a 8.5' V-plow.
    I have always liked the Fisher plow and the truck should have no problem with a 9' plow. Just My two cents

    Being from the Toronto area, I would recommend the made-in-Canada Arctic plow for a straight blade- they may make a 9', but I know for sure they have 8.5' models.

    I now (after Arctics for 18 years) run Boss vees, and I like them and I really like the dealer support and enthusiasum for my business. Dealer support should make it pretty high on your list of considerations. I won't recommend a brand, just the fact that I will never go back to a straight plow.
