    Alright we have an 8ft mm1 on our 3500 dually.The plow was a good deal and it couldn't pass up.The blade is in alright shape with a few pin holes but nothing serious.Probably put a new skin on it in the spring.Going to run the 8ft till we find a 9ft.The problem with the 8 foot is its not as wide as the truck causing the rear wheels to run over unplowed snow.My question is how much is a used 9ft blade worth? I've seen just some blades and other blades with a-frames and pistons.Also bought an 86 1500 with a speedcast setup for a lot truck but it didn't come with a blade.How much is a used 7-1/2 worth? We probably won't get enough snow to use this equipment:dizzy:

    You could always put some wings on it untill you find a 9 footer.

    If you're looking for a speedcast blade you can usually find them on eBay for less than $300. The last one around here I knew of sold for $75.
