    I'd like to try a Blizzard 810 on my '99 F250 but I'm thinking the price is kind of steep. I was quoted $4995 installed (or not). Price good until september if I pay 20% now. Is that price consistant with the rest of the country?

    Bterry, If you charge by the hour or get paid by the hour then no its not worth it. Anything else were your time is money then an extra 1000.00 over a straight blade is cheap for a plow that will save you a minimum of 25% of your time. Unless you do strictly small residential it should be a no brainer. I have owned and used v blades and straight blades and this year I will be running a Blizzard 810. They price the same as a v and do everything better and wider then a v. The only edge a v has is the drift breaking v mode, so unless you break threw giant drifts all the time get the Blizzard.

    We clear private roads in subdivisions. We charge a flat rate up to 6 inches then by the hour. Our old straight blades took a minimum of 4 passes in light snow and up to 7 passes in deep snow. We now clear the same roads with out 810 in 3 :) passes! I LIKE IT! We charge $120 per hour over 6 inches with our 810s!

    YES it is worth the extra grand! :nod:

    like said before the blizzard is for sure more efficient than a straight blade or v plow but if you are subbing than why spend the extra money and there is also A LOT MORE WEAR ON YOU TRUCK with a blizzard if its your personal truck i would not put a 810 on you'll just tear it up quick

    Call Jim Benchley 1-800-249-7058. An 810 $3985.00 cash & carry shipping $250-$300 depending where you live. Might be worth the call.

    I will do that, sounds like it would be worth looking in to this.

    680 720 price

    Does anyone know what the price of a 680 or 720 blizzard is running? needing a blade for a full size bronco without doing any front end mods. 94 bronco.
