    The black things are the holders of the magic smoke. Piss them off, they let the smoke out, and it stops working.

    They are very similar, with Blizzard being the most different. The entire merger happened due to the Blizzard design, and fisher/western wanting to use it.

    The thing that makes me nervous is Douglas Dynamics is now a publicly traded company. Now they have many shareholders who need to have smiles put on their faces. It will be interesting to observe the quality of components on the plows change to satisfy the bottom line. Not saying it will happen, or that I'm some expert. Just following history with these types of deals..
