    I have land for sale that will get me near $60K clear. I have fish swiming around the bait so it should not be long! The more I read, the more I like the concept of the Blizzard Power Plow operation.
    Do you guys like your plow?
    I have a Meyer right now and my Dad has always had them.
    I know the paint is an issue, but I am a Painter so that's not a real issue.
    I am going to put it on atleast a F-250 / 350 Diesel.
    A dealer/service is about 10 miles away so that's not an issue either.

    Yes, I like all 6 of my Blizzards. Even if only 4 of them are Power Plows. There is no more productive truck mounted plow on the market at this time.

    Mark, Your the productive one. I love my meyer also, but i guess it depends what he's plowing, ie. don't need wings to do small driveways.

    I won't argue that not everyone needs a Blizzard Power Plow. It definitely is not a plow for every contractor.

    Some guys need a V for the amount of snow they get, but that is limited to a few, IMHO.

    I save easily 1/3 of the time I plow. This is good unless you are getting paid by the hour!

    I get paid by the hour, but plowing frustrates me most times!
    I want to get it done and move on to the next place!
    The event is still going strong and I am getting behind.
    The contractor pays more for wings, So I am still ahead.
    The 810 seems to be the perfect solution!

    I now have 3 810's. Only buy a Blizzard if you are:

    1. Looking to cut down your time plowing so you can get back home

    or

    2. looking to stay out just as long but make 30% more money

    :D
