    Have a used Blizzard 810. I would like to download the manual for and get ready for the upcoming season. Looking the plow over, I did not see any identification tags or stickers on the plow. Where should they be?

    I believe I found the correct manual, but still have not found any identification markings.

    If there are any blizzard dealers watching, please PM me.

    Yep, as well as one of the wing cylinders where the hoses hook up. We can at least tell generation by that.

    The retract hose is 1/4" and the extend hose is 3/8".

    Tried to upload the pictures, but they kept failing. Will try again tom. :realmad:

    I dont think so. I just looked at mine, the stickers are exactly the same. The newer ones have the sticker in the middle and none on the pass side. The newer 2nd gen had 2 different hose sizes going to the wings (mine did and I changed them) I think its a mid 2000's model. but the nut size will help me out more.

    another thing I noticed is the gnd wire. I know it can be changed but look where its bolted at. the newer ones we have at work bolt in a different local. my 03 bolts right there as well.

    ok,,yours is probally a 2001-2004 05 they changed a few things that yours dosent have. try the 2003 on the blizzard website, that might get you in the ballpark.

    I downloaded the 2003 model year manual. It appears to be correct (at least what I have look at it thus far).

    Thanks for the help guys!

    No, no specific "issues" at the moment. Pulled it out and blew some hoses. I try and keep manuals of all our equipment in the shop and quick lists of most wear parts for quick ordering. I also try and keep extra hoses and stuff in the shop and/or trucks.

    I was thinking of posting in the Blizzard forum of ways people help extend the life of there hoses. IE what they use to keep them from rubbing and such.... I think I will do that now.

    ok,,,some info for you....I replaced the wing hoses with the same size, so theres only 1 hose to keep. have to buy a couple extra fittings but its not that much. hoses rubbing, some old heater hose around the opening or the hoses and some zip ties. i think i used 1/4 fuel line on the d-frame opening where the hoses run through
