    Since we had such a mild winter last year we had some extra cash left over in the budget.
    So decided to buy a new plow. Not sure wether its gonna go on the 110 TLB or stay on the Case.

    Canada, and they sell them cheaper in the USA.

    I had 1 of those plows on a dually. It will move a lot of snow.

    They are well built plows. They are solid and I never broke one. The wiring is old school but always worked well and cheap to fix. They are just hard to mount. I tried different ways and never found it easy.

    Sure, that is Cummins Hydraulics. They branched out into plowing quite a few years ago. I bought all my Arctics from them but in the last few years I have changed brands.
    They are the only dealer in Newmarket but not the only Arctic dealer.

    My dad back in 86 bought his first arctic blade for his first truck... Since then a fleet of 7 trucks (all fords) a 580 case backhoe have all run arctic blades.... Never once cracked a weld or had a breakdown that we couldnt fix ourselves with a few minutes of trouble shooting...

    Im located in the Mississauga/Toronto area and Arctics are quite common here. The local supplier I use is Hitch City.... Works great for me because they are right around the corner from my shop....

    What do those box ends run price wise? A set of them would look good on my 9' heavyweight

    Looks good. You see quite a few older Arctics but very few new ones.

    I like your mirrors on your skid steer arms. Thats a smart idea.
