    Does anybody have an idea on prices for Blizzard plows this season. A bit early but preperation is key.

    I realy want the Blizz. I have a subdivision that I plow the streets and about 20 of the drives. I don't want to be there for a week at a time. Plus its a Mich based Company. So I would like to give my money to the mitt. Wait and see.

    Yea pretty much... So I got ahold of Jerre and he told me what was going on. I don't think the price has gone up since laast year. Still 5300 for 810. Thanks again Jerre

    My dealer in Cedar Rapids, Iowa quoted me about the same, $5400 for a 810 mounted on my 05 F250 SD

    BTW any one want a near new 7'6" Snoway with wireless and Pressure? I have it listed on Ebay right now for $2600 but will sell it to a Plowsite member for $2300.00

    DO NOT SETTLE for a BOSS. If you want a BLIZZARD call around until you find the RIGHT dealer. Even there is a drive it will be worth it in the time you save plowing, the addtional lots you can plow made but the time you saved and most any BLIZZARD dealer, JERRE include WILL drop ship parts to your front door so if you do need a repair you can get it done anywhere. Anything between $5,400. - $5,800. installed with the Snow deflector is what I have paid the past three years so I can not see that much of an increase UNLESS the DEALER is going to gouge pricing to either keep the Blizzard sales down or take advantage of those wanting a Blizzard and knowing they might have to pay alittle more to increase production by hands down by 30% NO QUESTIONS ASKED.

    Thanks Evgreen. What do you think about the downeaster dump? Thaught about it but is it worth the money? The spreader is an extrao 2k I think. But it is a year round deal?

    The Downeaster dump insert w/replacment spreader is AWESOME. I added steel side and steel rear door for the summer. I could not be happier. Before the Downeaster Spreader I tried it all, VEEPRO8000, Swenson 8' Vbox with the Honda engine, ProFlo2. For bulk salt I have seen the best most dependable service out of the Downeasters. Last season I spreader over 180 tons of salt and I would say about 2/3 of that went doing without ONE failure outof the two Downeasters.

    If you are in the lawn and Snow biz you WILL get every penny outof this set up. I am happy with BOTH that I have.

    With Shipping to Chicago about $5,500.00 total. Well worth it BOTH times and again in the future should I ever add any more P/U's.

    The insert gets used all year. I have filled that up with everything you can think of in proportion of course. I could not do half to 2/3 of the work I do without them seeing how both the F-350's are on maintenace routes.

    Just for the mulch alone, not to mention Spring and Fall Clean Ups, Bush trimming, Sod, seed and Soil work. Brick work, you name it.
