    I bought a sweet 03' Dodge 2500 Diesel this summer and I can't find a used 810 in NH, MA, ME, or CT? Theres maybe 1 810 selling on ebay in the whole country? I found a rusty used/used one for a Chevy for $3000, is that priced about right? I already have an old 810 for my 96' but it needs a little help and its staying on that truck. It seems like a yr ago there were plenty of them around, what gives? Is it because the new ones aren't as good? I'd be willing to search for a mount and buy a plow setup for another truck. Maybe the $3k one is it? How much is a new one going for? Thanks.

    Yep there selling like hot cakes. I picked up a pretty rusted one 2 months ago for $2300. Needs about $1k worth of work to be like new.

    And yes it is because the new ones are not as good. There is a very strong following of the old style 810. Heck i know people who are shipping them all of the country and paying for it just to get one. If you can find one, buy it! Heck buy all you can see and put them storage. Their used prices are only going up.

    I'm in the same boat. I'll probably end up waiting until spring to pick one up at this point though.

    Mr. Hydroseed, I've been seeing one on 125 in Brentwood, I thought it was an 810 but my friend looked at it and they told him it was an 8611. From driving by I didn't think it looked that big, but maybe it's a lo-pro. I think my friend said they wanted $2000 for it, no idea what comes with it or what truck it was on. I can find out for you and get a phone number if you want.

    Sorry, I couldnt get there to check it out today, was crazy busy. I will definitely get the info tomorrow. I saw the one on CL you were talking about for $3000, I thought it looked pretty good. I think that's the one on a 2003 3500 they have for sale. I want that truck so bad, crewcab dually duramax for $23k. I'm only about $22,5 short, anybody want to loan me a few bucks?

    Bad news Mr. Hydroseed. I checked on the one in Brentwood, it is not for sale. They did actually have another one for sale but it was sold already. I just assumed because I saw it in their lot that it was the same one they were selling.

    Holy crap! I can get one installed for $5195. Do they really think they'll get close to five for that? And if they paid $7k, I gotta wonder if they are exaggerating that to raise the price, or did they just get royally screwed?
