    Fisher 9' Mc or 9.5' V-plow would be great for your truck.

    Viking? They have a new method for tripping over obstacles, it is a trip edge but the scraper edge is attached to a urethane piece which is attached to the moldboard. We have a 10' for our 750 or our older F-800. Haven't used it much, but it seems like a good plow so far.

    Our fleet consists of F450's PSD 2x4 duallies, early 90's were C&C while our new 2000's are crewcabs. We run Meyer/Diamond products. The older trucks had meyer 8-9' blades, which we quickly found out were too stressed under the weight of our trucks. The mechanics welded metal into some of the blades to toughen them up. Over the last few years we switched to Diamond 8-9' blades which are extremely rugged, and can handle the weight of the trucks.

    While some say Meyer/Diamond are junk, with the amount of plows we run, we've worked out the quirks, and they work well for us.

    Viking most have gotten that idear from pathfinder out of RI.They came up with it in the mid 80's It's a great set up but they have no dealers only factory direct.
