Blizzard prices

Discussion in 'Commercial Snow Removal' started by lownrangr, Nov 25, 2003.

  1. Before I venture out to the dealer, what can I expect the price for a Blizzard straight blade plow to be?

    it would depend on what straight blade you want to buy. They have 5 different kinds. Ranging from blade width to height of moldboard. Price will differ depending where you live. It is probably better to just go into the dealer and find out.

    I'm picking an 800 up tommorow. Why did i choose it?

    I'm not an experienced plow user so please take this in stride. I researched the different plow manufacturers. I looked at wieghts and durability based on a lot of posts here.

    I chose the Blizzard straight blade cause I like white

    Kidding

    I'm especially impressed with the torque box moldboard design. That is the same design technique used in the aicraft wing design. I believe that is a better design than the simple angle brace method. It's also cleaner.

    I also like the way the made the ends of the plow higher to contain the snow as it builds towards the ends.

    The video on the Blizzard website showing the 800 at work on a GMC truck seems to show the plow in the raised position.... nice and high. I like that too.

    The power attachment looks great. Drive up, hook up the electric and flip a toggle switch.. much like the Boss.

    I was also considering the Boss but is was a little more money and didn't have a unique moldboard design. Boss relies on moldboard thickness (11 guage). Their better plows are very heavy and expensive.... they wanted $4900 around here for an PowerV 8.2 installed.

    Is that 680 a 6'8" long blade? I thought that's how their numbering system works. What are you going to do with that? A small blade like that is completely worthless unless you're doing a bunch of little driveways. We don't hire anyone who has less than a 7 1/2' blade unless they buy (and use) a set of wings on them.

    I use a 7' meyers on my jeep and I find it pretty usefull in tight spaces and its very good for doing sidewalks.I sometimes even send it out with a backhoe to clean up after it.My opinion is that a blade under 7.5' can be very usefull.

    Great if it works for you. We tell our customers we don't even attempt to get into tight spots or a single parking space in between 2 cars because of the potential to do damage. Never had a negative reaction to that. They appreciate we are being careful. I'd rather not take the chance.

    Lownrangr what kind of truck are you going to put it on?
     
  19. It's going on a ranger, but I think I'm gonna stick with the homesteader because I only need it for real light duty (driveways). I'd kinda like to get the blizzard beacuse it's prolly built better than the homesteader and it'll be tougher, but I haven't made up my mind...
