    It was only a matter of time before "the brothers" sold it off. It's happened with all their other "stuff" their family has invented/produced over the years.
    Volcano Wood Stoves
    Boss snow plows
    Cuda parts washers
    and now
    Blizzard plows

    I've personallay known employess of the family, and they all know their job security isn't the greatest when hired because of all the sell-offs of the product.

    I Think that this will be great for Blizzard plows.

    Taking a design that clearly has its advantges and merging it with a proven manufacturer of quality plows will benifit blizzard.

    Im hoping that DD and Fisher will be able to work out the kinks that blizzard has had in the past.
