    Well we finally got some snow last night. 3" fell at some point...got caught with my pants down as they were saying a dusting in the forecast. Woke up, looked outside and :eek: ! Threw some pants on, flew out the door, hooked up and starting pushing. Everyone was caught by surprise, nothing but a few of the main roads had been plowed.

    Anyway, the new Blizzard worked great! Love it. However I did take a chunk out of my cutting edge...hit a big rock in my own driveway, I think that's where it happened. Anyway dealer said they may take care of it, they've never had anyone break the cutting edge before and think it may have been a defect. Either way, it was my fault as I should have been more careful.

    Can't wait till the next snow! Had a blast.

    Did your blade trip at all? Just curious, because I hit a few things really hard so far and my blade just tripped which obviously saved some other parts. :)

    Yeah, I tripped my blade about 5 times today. Wish it would have tripped when I hit that rock, but instead the plow popped up in the air... :cry: .
    I was probably going too fast. I need to go back and find that damn rock and throw in the lake... :realmad:

    Butters, I can't find anything I don't like about it. In fact I don't know if procedure for hooking up the plow and taking it off could be any easier. Took me a couple minutes to hook up and about a minute to drop it. I guess one thing I wish it had...1/2 inch thick cutting edge. The 760LT has a 3/8 inch edge to lighten the load a little, how much heavier would the 1/2 inch be? Anyway, really happy with the plow, couldn't be happier...well, unless I had a 3/4 ton with the 810 Blizzard Power Plow! :D

    Yeah Geo, the 760LT, and the price was very reasonable...maybe because it had a cracked cutting edge, hmmm... :)

    Strange year, usually we have 3-4 plowable snows by this time of year in northern Minnesota. But I suppose since I bought the new plow the "big guy" upstairs just wanted to get back at me for something. :nono: :D .

    So yeah, finally got to have some fun!

    Does the Blizzard stack snow very high? I have never seen it in action.

    Buck - Glad to see you're happy with your decision!!

    Good luck bro!!

    This time last year in Jersey we already had two plowable storms too!! I hope this is no indication of how the rest of the winter is going to be!

    Hey Butters,
    We only had 3" so I didn't get a chance to stack very high. But I don't see any reason why it wouldn't.

    Bad Luck,
    Yeah it seems like most areas had a couple plowable snows by this time last year...and now, nothing. Like you say, hope that's not an indicator of whats to come.

    Butters,

    I have had the 760 for the past 2 seasons. I have been able to stack snow as high as 8 ft. I might have been able to stack higher, but I realized I was blocking the sign for my company by the road and thought I better try and keep it visible. So far, I have not had any problems with the plow. I like it very much. The only problem has been with the lights. There is a box that all your light wires plug into. I am now on my 3 one. Every year water gets in the box and I need to replace it. Hopefully I can figure out a temp fix for this problem. The box is now clear so I plan on checking it and maybe sylicone on it to keep water out.

    OK. Finally got my plow last night. Came home and started plowing. So far so good. I have yet to adjust the shoes and I am still learning the ropes so to speak, but it is pretty cool so far. I plowed my drive again this morning (approx. 1500 ft total). Plow trips a bit when hitting uneven areas, but I think it is just a matter of me being inexperienced and the springs being a little too loose. I am sure I will have plenty of time to perfect my plowing skills this winter. I will post pics when I have time to take any. Thanks to all who helped me make my decision on which plow to buy.

    Our 810 will but you need to pull back on the stick about a 1' away. Then the snow bank will take it to the top.

    I guess I been lucky, eventhough this has been low snow year for us, I've been through my lot 15 times already (2" trigger each time). :drinkup:

    Hope you get a chance to play soon.
