    The 810 will be at least 30% more productive than a v plow. Once you gt the hang of it, it will be 50% faster. I went from an MVP western to an 810 last year, and those numbers are facts,not theories. $ 5200 is about going rate, although Portsmouth ford in NH will save you about a grand, but Jerre in Erie is the best installer/ service GURU in the East.

    Pro-image quoted me $4600 installed, $4100 cash and carry. I think I would attempt the install myself. I havent tried Portsmouth Ford, but I heard that they sell them real cheap, thats why Mahoneys stopped selling them, they couldnt compete. I would pay money to not deal with Portsmouth Ford, they have a rep for being crooks. At least in the service department. Mike at Pro-image is the greatest guy to deal with, he also sells Sno-way, but he easily convinced me that a Blizzard 810 is better than a V-plow. I wanted a V-plow until I grasped the concept that Blizzards get wider and V-plows get narrower.

    I'd go for the blizzard. If you go with a V I much prefer the trip edge that is on western and fisher V's if you do much higherspeed comercial.

    Mike is great to deal with and thats why I recommend him to anyone in this area looking for a plow. I did my own install but he still offered his cell number for any service I may need or any problems in a storm as he will open to fix anything.
    I paid 3900 for mine which was a great deal I thought as a V was going to cost me 4100 at the time.
