Best Plow for F-450 Dump

I am planning to buy a plow for a F-450 dump. What size do you guys suggest, 8.5 , 9.0 or even 10? and what brand and model will be the best fit for this truck?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

At the risk of pissing some people off, Blizzard 8611. Most productive plow on the market. Do a search and you will see why I recommend it.

yep 8611, is t a wopping 12foot extended, and a truck like that is doing parking lots anyway might as well save 30% of your time. i have an 810 on my 250 and its 10' extended we haa....lets hope for light fluffy snow

I had a 450 with a 9 ft MC fischer. The MC was way to heavy. The truck could not go around corners with the plow down... I have a 550 with a 9 ft Fishcer X blade stainless., It`s a assume plow.

I would stick with a 9 ft...

I am all for the 8611 blizzard. Nothing comes close to it. I can't wait to get mine.

You can go 8611 or 8611lp on the F-450. Kinda a toss up.

F-450 Plow

I saw a cool plow at a snow and ice show recently. It was an EVEREST 9' plow plow with a fixed frame that was removable with four pins. The Hydraulics lights were from fisher. It looked Heavy duty
