    Where did those stainless hoses come from? They look way to small.

    Yeah they do... Did dd change the bottom of the blade? Looks like it's in nice shape, but the back/bottom of the moldboard looks a little different than my LP's... Wish I was in the market for another one...

    Slide box stops were removed in place of a bolt at the end of the slide box channel for a few years. IIRC, they are now back to using the pins like they did from 2003-2007 or so.

    Just curious I notice a lot of guys run these plows without a light tower. You dont need them? do you have it, do they even come with a light tower?

    Any feedback?

    And that expands from 8.6 to 11 correct?

    They come with a light tower, but a lot of guys don't use them. Especially with Fords that sit higher to begin with... I use light towers because the cities where I work are so bad at plowing the streets, the blade needs to be all the way up between accounts in the early morning hours, which blocks the factory headlights.

    The blizzards had pretty crummy lights for many years as well, that in a lot of cases you were better off with the factory lights.

    8611lp = 8.6' retracted out to 11' extended. 810 = 8' retracted out to 10' extended. Both are less with the wings scooped.

    If I decide to keep mine I may have to buy your for spare parts. It would be a lot cheaper for sure.
