    just a pic of my 8 foot diamond blade that i just got painted and mounted. powered by a fisher pump off a minute mount, ran by a set of "homebuilt" controls mounted on my stick shift. total cost is about $250 which includes building the truck side mount.

    its nothing real fancy but it works, alot cheaper than a factory one, and works slicker than snail snot with my manual tranny.

    That looks like a pretty nice slick set up.

    i haven't got to try it out actually plowing. no snow to plow yet, last year we had almost 6 feet at this time (go figure). the dry run is perfect, i shift with my hand on the side of the shifter, which puts the switchs within perfect reach of my thumb. the one on the left you push up for up , and down for down. the switch on the right is for the angle, right and left respectivly. i spent two nights getting the wiring figured out. however once i figured it, it was stupidly simple.
