    Next time you call ask for Jim. He's great to deal with and he'll treat you right. Maybe he'll see this thread and you'll get a direct response.

    Maybe they are on vacation or something, because when I call I can not ask for anyone. No one answers the phone, all I get is prompts for sales, parts, customer service, etc.. Tried them all and they all go to voicemail.

    I got a call from my buddy saying the same thing. I gave him Jims #, and he said he cant get through......hopfully Jim does see this, because my buddy wants to order some of the folding wings for his 9ft snowdogg.

Sorry about any delay but dont know what else I can do

    Thanks for getting back to me Jim. In case you are interested I left a voicemail on the sales mailbox 3 days ago and no one ever called back. I did not leave a message on the parts voicemail because I thought sales made more sense then parts when I am buying an entire plow. As far as the e-mail you sent I never got it, but that would not be the first time with my crappy e-mail account. At this point I am afraid that I had to go to my local supplier Central Parts Warehouse for the plow. But I will certainly keep you in mind for my next purchase since you guys have REALLY GOOD pricing. Thats probably why you are so busy!! Also I did not have your ext numbers and now that I do, it will make future purchases much easier. Thanks, Keith.

    Jim, I have a quick question. I was told by a local dealer that the new 810 xp doesn't extend straight out like the blizzards do. And that it actually goes in to a scoop as soon as it comes out. We run mostly blizzards but I like the idea of a stainless steal plow. Could you clear this up for me. Thanks

    I'll get this one. The XP810 is not like the blizzard. It's an expanding scoop plow. Fewer moving parts, and a full 10' scoop.

    That's what I was wondering. So its a full 10' scoop and does not straight blade at 10'? That's kinda weird. I was hoping it was like the blizzards but in stainless. Thanks for the info

    Well, I don't think it's that wierd, but since my team designed it I'm biased. We were going for simple, and between a full-time scoop and a full-time straight, we found the scoop more useful. It's only 20 degrees, so you can still windrow just fine. The guys who use it in big parking lots love it.

    I'm sure as the season progresses we'll get more feedback.

    so its an 8ft straight and a 10ft scoop? trip edge or full trip?

    When retracted, it's an 8ft scoop. When extended, it's a 10ft scoop. The wings are fixed scoops.

    Full trip, steel cutting edges on the center and wings.

    I know you said the wings are fixed in the scoop position, but is there any give when the plow trips. What happens when the plow fully trips? Do the wings lay down flat?

    Good question. As the wings are a permanent scoop, the plow trips and the wings remain scooped.

    When we were developing this we looked at a lot of V-plows and competitors expanding plows. While in every case, the wings CAN flatten prior to tripping, it never actually happens.
