    My buddy is interested in the above plow for his truck. The website lists only the plow weight of 750lbs. Does anyone know for certain the additional undercarriage frame and lightbar weights?

    Thanks Ed (for Bob)

    no weight given

    Hi Jon,

    As I said, the 750lbs refers only to the plow, and does not include the additional weight of the undercarriage subframe and light bar. Brochure AND website just list the 750lbs with an asterisk mentioning exclusion of the undercarriage. What do these weigh?

    800 weight

    Thanks Jon,

    But still doesn't answer my buddy's question. "Complete weight" of 750lbs is really not accurate. Even the brochure and website indicate that the weight refers to plow unit only, not the undercarriage mount frame and light bar. My buddy says his truck is right up against the limit with 800lbs maximum allowed for plow AND subframe mount. Since these mounts can run over 100lbs, he needs to know before purchasing (I don't know why blizzard doesn't indicate what that weight is).

    He's going to try and call blizzard hdqrtrs. tomorrow to ask for some info. on this.

    blizzard weight undercarriage - per Blizzard

    Hi Jon,

    As I suspected, according to Blizzard corporate hdqrtrs., the additional weight of the subframe for his truck is 134 lbs., bringing total weight to 884 lbs. A pretty heavy 8' plow. Maybe too heavy.
