    OK I have a 97 F350 DRW 4x4 with a 9' fisher on it I do 95 percent comerical plowing I'ts time to buy a new plow? why would i buy a 8611 instead of a fisher I wish you guys with 810s or 8611s would reply with the prows and cons on your purchace . How long have you had it and what problems if any? I can get a 8611 low pro but i have to ship it in from the mid west i'm wondering if it is worth it? :gunsfiring: :rolleyes:

    Buy a Blizzard because it will increase your productivity by at least 30% over a v-plow. Haven't had any problems other than the plug coming loose. Removed the rigid mount and no more problems.

    no pix it is supposed to mirror the 810 just 8'6" to 11 the factory says it weigs a little more than the 810. I spoke with the customer service rep at the factory he said between 1000 and 1100 lbs :gunsfiring: :cool:

    Ernie Jerre is the Blizzard man. The "Special" is a modified 810 or 8611 that has Jerres special touches. He flips the manifold for better access, runs all larger hydraulic lines for speed and you only need one for a spare. He adds blade stops so your not bending your cylinder pins. Double wing springs and double wing edges. His prices are good and your getting one of the best in the industry.
    Plus I get to take a road trip with Cummins purring away !

    LoPro is an 8611 that is the same height as an 810. Lightened up so that it can go on 1 tons. Approx. 950-1000#'s. Limited production this year, selling fast.
