Does anyone have any experience or recommendations<br>adapting a snow plow to an S404.1? I have a 9' Fisher<br>power angle blade available, but would use whatever<br>works. Fisher advises they have no kit available for <br>404.1 applications in the USA, but know of Fisher<br>plows installed in Europe.<p>Tnx.<br><br><hr size=7 width=75%><p>

Dan,<p>I know of a 404 for sale, owned by a guy named Todd ([email protected]) and he's running an 8 foot Fisher and a sander. He might be able to give you some pointers. <p>The 9 foot may be a bit heavy on the steering but straight line plowing w/o raising the plow much would probably be Ok. Load the bed w/ lots of weight. <p>You are correct there is no off the shelf mounts, it's a complete owner fabrication. The electric over hydraulic pump will be at least $475. or you may be able to mount a Diamond plow pump (small) to the engine with a remote tank.<p>Good Luck. <p><br>: Does anyone have any experience or recommendations<br>: adapting a snow plow to an S404.1?
