    :angry: I just switched to a 810 and plowed this morning, both wings are extended and only move about an 1" now. Is this a common problem for these? I had a boss 9'2" v, I'm sorry I got rid of it.....:cry:

    Be more specific, are they stuck out, in or folded forward?
    I have never had any issues like that but anything can happen. Is anything stuck in there? It could be packed with ice. Best thing is hity the car wash with hot water and blast it out and see whats going on.
    Don't give up yet.

    Found out problem

    :dizzy: Good News...The one wing was jambed with snow...Bad News... Drivers wing, cutting edge, and Cyl. pin was BENT from hitting soft ground. The wing did not fold back. Both wings were stuck out straight off the plow in the extened position. The dealer is keeping my plow over night to try to repair it......I guess I need to get the back up truck out and my shovel, I would have never thought a wing would do that!:dizzy:

    Good news I now have a plow for sale! :eek:

    I don't want to be a smartass but how fast did you hit the "soft ground" to bend a wing, edge and cyl pin??

    How much do you want for it. I will take as is.
    You must have been cruising to bend all those items. Slow down next time.

    Speed

    Well seeing it was my first time using a blizzard, I was going slow and I just started to accelerate, I moved about 25 feet. The wing did not bleed off the pressure, it took all the force. I had that happen to a boss plow and it was my fault because I had it adjusted to full pressure, but I only bent a cyl, not everything.
    I'm going to pick it up today, they have it all straightened out.
    I would consider selling it for $4400 unless they are willing to buy it back.

    Was you accelerating at wide-open-throttle in those 25 feet??? Cause if you was driving like you had a brain and that plow bent that easy hitting soft dirt, I know what kind of plow I'll never buy.

    All fixed... for now...

    Well they fixed it...I'm not impressed at there knowledge of the system...The cause for it seems to be in the hydraulics some way or another... one wing did not bleed all the pressure and there ya go broken plow...so I guess this is a freak accident. They are suppose to test the valve bank out when I can drop it off for a day.
    As far as my other plow being damaged, that was completely my fault...I designed extension for my 7'6" boss v plow to make it into a 9'2" v and I adjusted one wing a bit to far :blush2: .

    Are you still selling the 810?

    Selling

    Yes...I am selling it...No real service, my fault for asking the right questions. I thought since they were built only a 150 miles away that I would have the service.

    You mentioned $4400, but I can get a new one installed for $4395. I could offer you $3500 since I still would have to buy the truck mount at another $485. Totally understand if you think if that sounds low.

    The plow has the snow flap installed and an air foil, so I couldn't go $3500

    No reason for the snow foil it's a waste of money. Blizzards are designed to foil it within the plow. I ran a 810 all last winter and loved it. VERY few problems.

    I disagree. My 810 lets the snow blow over the top just the same as my Boss plow, which has just as much curl to the moulboard.

    :dizzy: Same old problems... Wing will not work properly, It seems to be over extending...Are the cutting edges suppose to stay over lapped or is there suppose to be a 1" gap between the wing and blade at full extension? If I put it in the straight position all the way extended out should it go directly to scoop or do you have to run it back in a couple inches and back out to scoop?:confused:
