    That's awesome. I see the Fisher mount. Are you putting the 10' municipal blade on it?

    I bought it without a blade.The dealer said everything was removed but i found
    the wiring behind bumper and the plug in cab for controller.Don't know what type
    of plow it had on it,v or straight.I'm picking it up next week and I'll see if my 10'mc
    will match up.Otherwise I'll sell my International 4700 with the plow and put a 8611 on it.
    Hopefully it will work and save me some $'s I don't have.

    Is that 2 wheel drive? I was quoted $39,500 for that same truck 2 years ago with 4 wheel drive.

    You are going to kill that blizzard, you are better off with a full size 8611 for that truck. If you want to sell the one in the last pic let me know. I am in CT
