    Anyone out there have any opinions on if an E60 can handle an eight and a half foot blade? I've got 2 8.5s lying around and was going to put it on my truck this year but had concerns about reliability.

    4 - E60's all have the 8.5' Poly snow plows which are heavier than steel plows.

    We had a 9' Poly plow that was fine with the E-60 also.

    Either pump will run any plow.

    The same pumps are used on Diamond plows which are significantly heavier.

    Worst case senerio, move the lift point attachment closer to plow to gain mechanical advantage for pump if you are concerned or think it slugish
