    I've seen used blades in good shape around for about $300. Check classifieds. I know a guy had a western setup minus the mount last year. I think I saved his ad. I had a guy looking for a Western last year but backed out.

    I looked for several months. Anything not pitted to heck was going for 7-800.00

    New Or Used?

    What type of blade are you talking about? A new one or a used one? John

    What do I think?

    I think you should get an 8 footer! 7.5'ers are for 1/2 tons.

    Curtis makes a real heavy duty plow. Don't know much about their "A-Frame Mounted" hydraulics, but their overall craftmanship is top notch!

    I think that price is kind of high. I got a 7½ ft Curtis SnowPro 3000 installed in 2000 for about 450 less. OK, that was two years ago, and it wasn't winter
