    Yes, love it. Will have at least 1 more on our other 550 next year and possibly a LoPro 8611 on my 350.

    Most productive plow I have ever seen, on a truck that is. At least 33% more productive than a 9'6" Fisher V, some cases probably 50% more productive. Scrapes better than any v plow as well.

    Mark, Can I ask you how much you paid for your 8611. The local western dealer is going to become a Blizzard dealer and I want to compare his pricing.

    About $4700. The plow was part of a plow, central hydraulics, flatbed backage, but that is about where it came in at.

    Triton, what local Western dealer is picking up Blizzard ?? I am shopping for an 810 for my Dodge, found one guy in Twin Lakes but have not got a set price yet. I know Tim Wallace in Chicago sells em too, but not really local (Im in Eastern lake County, and usually go to Adams for my parts). There not really close either.

    I spoke to Rich Adams today about Blizaard plows. He's considering picking them up.I'm ordering a 8611 from them.

    That is good to know if they pick them up they will have a good parts supply too.. What are you going to hang the 8611 on ?

    I figured Adams would latch on too Blizzard, I am actually surprised it took this long especially after they kicked Boss to the curb last year. I guess half the county will be runnin Blizzards now. Shoppin for an 810 now, suppose I will have to stop over and get a price.
