Has anyone found an A-Frame Toggle Switch for less than $39?

    I need a B 62038 DPDT (on) - off - (on) toggle switch for connecting an 810 power plow. My local dealer doesn't have one, so it'll take forever and it's $39!!! That seems excessive. Has anyone found an acceptable alternative switch or an online source for this one? How 'bout an online Blizzard parts source? My local dealer is below average and stocks nothing.

    Yep, I believe they were $11, but I've got to look for the link, can't remember where it was...

    Edit: I found it: Spemco. We called and ordered them, they don't have pricing or ordering abilities online.

    Thanks for the lead Wizardsr. $10.90 each for an Otto t7-211e1 dpdt toggle, and I'll have them the next day in Michigan.
    FYI, jerres was $36.00.

    Yeah, Jerre told me to get them elsewhere a couple years ago. At least he was honest with me.

    The manufacturers are getting them from Spemco, selling them to the distributor, who's selling them to the dealer, who's selling them to the customer. All that markup and people wonder why plow parts are so expensive... :laughing:

    One quick question on this switch from Spemco is this a direct replacment from what is on the plow now? Also I did a search on the mentioned switch (Otto t7-211e1 dpdt toggle) and came up with nothing anyone have the item # for that switch from Spemco. I thank anyone for any and all help.

    Bob :D :D :D

    It's the same switch. Call them and tell them what you're looking for, their website isn't the most user-friendly I've seen...

    It is amazing how much the same part can cost with a manufactures name on the package. I had to replace all four of my plow light connectors and wasn't to thrilled about paying for the blizzard ones. I found the same thing ,and got all four plugs for 15 bucks !!!

    Guys Is this switch one that has power to the center wire and the sends power one way or the other?
    I have a bunch of switches like that left over from some other project they are weather tight for outdoor use. Does any one want to try one?

    They are double pole, double throw momentary with center-off.

    I would take two for the right price
