    hello, my dad has a 2004 Ford F-350 5.4l gas. standard cab longbox. he has a 2002 model Blizzard 810 (before DD). bought the plow and truck new in 2004 off the lot. so far hes had to rebuild a wing cylinder. replace the center pivot bolt and all the pins and bushings in the hitch assembly. and a new pump motor. all in all he absolutely loves the truck and plow.

    Nice rig Should be great.

    That cement how you could LOAD. It weight no more than 350 LB.

    What tire you use on that.

    I'm willing to bet you that block weights more than 350 pounds. Just guessing here but it looks to be 8" thick 4' wide and roughly 2' long. that would come out to 9 #80 bags of premix concrete or 720 pounds worth

    i cant remember what he put on for tires, he got em over the summer. he owns an excavation company, so he uses his backhoe to load the block. hooks a chain the the bolts that hold it in place. we have no clue how much it wieghs... it works good though

    Sharp looking truck, he should be proud. When do you get the keys to that bad boy?
