    What Blizzard controller do you prefer for the 810? I see they have one with a joystick and rocker swithches and the have a touchpad model. Ther is also the standard one with just rocker switches.

    Joystick. I haven't plowed with it yet, but I left the plow on all week while driving to get used to it.
    Very smooth, easy.

    I prefer the Joystick with rocker switches for wing control. I have them in both trucks now and at one time did use the plain rocker switch controller. The plain rocker switches are fine but one more set of buttons to make sure you hit right. Whichever you get used to shoud be fine.

    I have the Joystick model also. It does work well but seems a little touchy until you get use to using it. Then it works rather well.

    I have the touchpad and my new one has a joystick, personally I think the joystick is the way to go.pumpkin:

    We also have the joystick/rocker combo. Haven't plowed with it yet, but it seems nice.

    I was just wondering if you could explain the controller to me. I know the plow goes from 8 to 10 feet, you can put a wing in and out and angle it forward. I see buttons for the wing out and in but what about angleing the wing?

    After the wing hit full extension, you can either release the switch to leave it like that or leave the extension switch activated a second or two longer and the wing cants forward. It reverses the same way.

    Nuttymopar-do you have a pic of your truck with the new plow on? It's gotta look awesome with that really nice, clean old body style with that fresh plow. email me or post it on a page, if you could. :D
