    Just ordered my Ebling 16ft back blade, going on a diesel 1 ton truck, Hopefully it will eliminate 1 guy ( out of 4 ) and the down pressure I am hoping will keep things cleaner. The sites we plow have a tremendous amount of back blading at various widths, and our contract calls for us to be there at trace amounts..Hope I am doing the right thing

    mostly commercial, one our sites is about 6 acres of plowing and salting, we pretreat usually a day or two before predicted snowfalls and arrive when the first flury blows. 1/2 a mile from our facility. The usual fast food 500 sites and gas stations

    Mostly residential drives and walks. I have a couple commercial sites but nothing to big, 1.5 acres and less with lots of walks. Funny because 90% of my landscaping is commercial, but those accounts are to big for me to plow, 5-10 acre range.

    Good luck with the Ebling, haven't heard any bad comments on them. I'm sure it will make certain jobs easier and quicker.

    the first night you will think you dont have enough hands to run that thing and will think its a waste. you will have to look at your lots differenly and plan different ways to plow them.

    night 2 you wont beleive how fast you went thru the route.

    I don't have one yet but I'm already thinking the same thing. So you guys that have these and aren't near Michigan, are you driving your trucks there and getting them installed or are have them shipped and put on locally?

    I would like to know that as well. Who pays for warrenty work if you have it shipped to you? Do you just have it fixed and then send the bill to whoever sold it to you? Wondering how it all works.

    I am not really to worried about the warranty work GR is 90 minutes away, If it breaks I am sure I will fix it first and handle warranty question later, I am going to buy additional parts anyway. The welds I think are bullet proof and the shear bolts will be stocked wholesale on the dashboard. I think its a question of when I hit something not If i hit something LOL

    This type of product is more or less Home made, They do however have a warranty for commercial users and Non commercial users. I am impressed with the Eblings as a family owned business and a reputable steel fabricator. They have been building these thing for 25 years, and whether its Boss or Blizzard or Curtis which I own all Three brands I am sure there will be issues with something, Ya never know, but having a 14K pound hitch really excites me to mount it to..

    There really isn't much to go wrong and the install is very simple. I've sold 9 of them and the basically the only problem we've had is broken cylinders and that's from catching the wings violently on something. There is a shear bolt but if you smoke something hard enough you can bend the wing and screw the cylinder.

    I got home from Grand Rapids last night. I purchased a used Ebling there. Jim did the mount install, as I was 600+ miles from home.

    I can tell you this.......Ebling and their product are top notch!. This was my first time to see a power plow in person at the ebling showroom. Unbelieveable! The quality and carftsmanship of their product is remarkable. Customer service is not going to be an issue. Jim and his crew of guys went out of their way to help me out!

    I will be ordering a new 16' for next season. Til then, I will work with the 8' fixed wing.
