    Search my young jedi knight, there are lots of answers.....

    I haven't had any true issues in 300 hours of use from February till May of this year.

    Next years models reduce by two cylinders, 4 valves, 4 hoses and have a stiffer light bar setup.

    I have ran the wings into curbs with ZERO problems. I think others will chime in the same.

    I have an invested interest in Blizzard plows, so my opinion is biased, but I think alot of others will chime in with more positive responses.

    Philly, Got stopped by a customer this morning. Last fall he had wanted to put a straight 8' blade on and I suggested he demo an 810. He plowed a couple of times and came in an paid the difference.

    Today he wanted to thank me again for suggesting the 810 vs the straight blade. Was doing the work of 2 other trucks because of reduced cleanup.

    Guys like him are why I hang and repair plow's for a living. The extra parts are a small price to pay for the improvement in performance and reduction in time to do the job's.

    Unless I had to do alot of fire lanes or long narrow driveways I wouldn't plow with anything else.........Except adding a Sidewing to the truck also.


    p.s. What kind of truck?????

    Chris, Howard pretty well hit the big changes. They are adding gussets and some slide box changes to help snow/slush exit easily ( yes it does get in ). There are some improvements coming in the paint process and some of the prep work that will really improve the looks. Going back to Arrow lights I like the style better hopefully the public will to. Call me for more info on the line if you want. In the shop most days and the cell is always on. Jerre

    I currently run three plow trucks and in a eight inch storm all three would normaly be running like mad to keep up. This year we put a Blizzard 810 on my 01 f-250 and ran two trucks all year while one stayed in the shop as a spare. When a storm ended at say 10:00 p.m. I would go out myself and plow till 6:00 a.m. and be done. All I had left was sanding the lots. This plow is a work horse. And I have had zero problems.
