    i was just wondering how many people are running the first few year of the plow 99-00 and if the newer plows hold up to the older ones as in for break downs and so on.. i like my 99 but hear bad about newer ones wondering how long this will last till repars is more than the plow is worth

    Erie 1 is IIRC an 04 model and yes it's still running in Ohio.

    I only run 2-3 plows, all the ones I've owned are still running full steam AFAIK.

    Newer 810s much better than old 8 hose versions,latest ones have larger piston pins, better powder coat,better motor,quick disconnect light bar,increased warranty.

    Increased warranty needed due to built lighter....IMO.

    I'd take an 03 04 or 05 long before I'd take a new 08 or 09 from the looks of them.
