    I'd go with Blizzard. The 720LT gives you 2" more height, 6" more width and only weighs 15lbs more than the 680LT.payup

    Ya Is the western and fisher you looked at the suburbanite and it's homesteader? Theres one where I live on an s-10 and yes they look not commericaly up to the task. Snoways are nice plows, so are blizzards, they sell em at my boss's auto repair center. I agree go with at least a 7 foot blade. I have a 7 foot on my blazer and it's only about 8 inches wider that the tires. Either way you'll be getting a good plow, just be sure if you get the snoway get the taller one, not one of the ones with the very short moldboard.

    Trying to decide between the blizzard 6.8 for $3350 mounted or the meyers 6.5 $3200 mounted. Any input on the 2 plows. I like northman plows, but cant find a dealer in ohio.

    680 has only one problem...

    The 680lt's moldboard height is too short. Why the he## they didn't make it at least the 720's height behooves me..

    I had the Blizzard 680LT on my 04' Ranger FX4 Level II. I got this plow before they offered the 720LT. I paid $2800.00 installed. I had good luck with this plow. Granted, I only used it on driveways and on one storm had to plow out a motor vehicle inspections station for a buddy. I would definately go with the 720 if you have the option. I loved the Blizzard...had one problem with the headlight relay...but that was the installers mistake and they corrected it. I would have gotten another Blizzard this time around, but they were out of stock. So good luck with whatever you choose!
