In this episode of SnowPlowNews, Mike Stevens visits with Andy McArdle of Fisher Engineering. They discuss the new strategies and line extensions that will allow Fisher to offer dealers more product line flexibility.
Andy talks about Fisher’s desire to reach their current dealer base with new options for heavy non-truck equipment.
Fisher Emphasizing Non-Truck: Skid-Steer, Loader, and Backhoe Snow Plows
While Fisher has provided high quality truck snow plows for some time, they are now moving into new areas. Fisher now carries a whole line of pusher plows from 8-16ft in length. These plows move a lot of snow and they are available for skid-steers, backhoes, and loaders. Now, the HDX and HD2 snow plows, along with the earlier Xblade and HD Series are available with a universal mounting system for non-truck applications.
Skid-steers and other non-truck applications often require more out of the plows. The additional torque provided by these machines really provides a workout for a snow plow. Fisher has improved the boxes on these plows by adding reinforcement and heavier critical components.
The non-truck snowplow market is heating up and more manufacturers are coming to the party. That means more high quality choices, better technology, and new innovations coming to a dealer near you.
