    I run an 8ft 3500 series on a caterpillar 257 track loader, works excellent, very sturdy, well built, scraps ice and compact snow down to asphalt with ease.

    The bottom is a steel trip edge, works well, its reversible, if your going to be doing alot of backdragging, make sure a back drag edge is mounted on it.

    In fact I just purchased another HLA similar with 8ft., that widens out 13 ft., hydraulic snow wing they call it.

    2 years ago I paid 3800.00 for the exact one you are thinking of purchasing in Ontario, Canada. So 2500.00 sounds like a really good deal. Good luck!

    We have a Horst 8ft skid blade that is on it's 9th season and all we've done to it is change the cutting edge. They use the same trip assembly on the lighter blades as they do on there heavy ones so it's basically indestructible on a skid.

    another plus of an 8 footer is you can trailer it with the pusher on.....

    If your skid is big enough to handle the 10ft I'd get it. The up front money will save you a lot of time and allow you to maybe pick up more work.

    I run a 10' 3500 series on my Case 120, no problems. Drivers haven't been able to hurt it yet.

    I think anyone who does not have a HLA wish's they had a HLA....including me. If you want more info on them just do a search on here. A lot of good things about them have been said on the site.

    I've seen HLA products in green, look like it was a factory paint job, since your close by, a phone call to Horst would confirm it.
