    an 810? Retracted, the truck will be just as wide even when the blade is straight! Why not the 8611, or another brand 10'?

    Just came home to take a break. so far 2 inches of snow/mush.
    We've never used the truck to plow with, only salting so far this year. Unfortunately we've had a few misc problems with it that the dealer says don't exist (randomly goes into limp mode which is no fun when dragging a trailer). My boss is the one that drives it most of the time, personally i prefer my mason dump (there's pictures of it in another thread). the gmc can't get out of it's own way with more than two yards of anything in it or pulling a trailer. way way underpowered but i think that's mostly due to the bed - way too heavy (but it is practically indestructable).

    Probably has the 6.6 duramax in it. Or possibly the 8.1 vortec gas engine. Nice looking truck! Lets see some action shots!
