    OK then.lol What happens if it breaks or any other issues? I'm just saying around here, it would go to the back of the pack if any dealer found out it was bought "on line" good luck with it. Thats a hell of a lot cheaper than my Fisher Extreme V was.

    I will have pics up ASAP. As for dealer issues, I am buying it online from another dealer so I expect that will be a non issue. I have only heard good things so I guess we will just hope and see. Local news is calling for 1ft more snow than normal this year but we all know they have no clue. Wish me luck. Oh and yes it is being installed down in VA

    My install date was for tommrow now not sure. Booked my install date 4 weeks ago and my plow still isn't at the dealer. I am not very pleased at this point. There is some snow in the forecast for next week and I have no plow. As soon as I had booked my install I was able to unload my old plow. So at this moment I have nothing. :realmad:

    As Brian Young stated, be warned if you take this plow to your local dealer for a warranty problem they will put you at the back of the line to repair your problem, it could take days in the middle of a snow storm to get your repair done. Dealers will always put the people that bought plows from them ahead of you for warranty repairs.

    and I would almost expect that... Do they ever just give you a part and let you fix it or do they need to complete the repair for the warranty. I do not plan on beating this plow up too much, but I know the first time I plow a "friends drive" I will break something. This year will be residential work so I don't forsee too much wear. I guess only time will tell. Wish me luck!

    Just placed my order for a MD75 today. Install date is some time in the next 2 weeks. I gotta drive about 40 miles to have it installed.

    No I do not believe they will give you the part and let you fix it yourself. Good Luck

    Sorry to the guys at ESI, whom are great, that this took so long to post... The plow is on the truck and the install went well. My first new plow ever! I made a drive to get the plow and the guys made it known that they appreciated my business!! Communication was excellent as well as the delivery of service! I have already recommended ESI to another person here in CT. The plow works great from what I can tell.. The weather people were calling for up to 6" and there is just about 1/2" in the grass and none on the pavement. Time will tell....

    They r nice plows for the money, but u'll be at the dealer for something or another over the next so many years.

    What could you have saved to make it worth your time? $500? I woulda easily made a friend at a local dealer for such a little amount of much money.

    That said, hope your first Winter is a fun 1.

    The difference between my dealers here in cincinnati is over $1000 more than ESI's prices, plus my dealers are rude, well worth a drive in my opinion. Jim@esi has been awsome to deal with so i will continue to do business with him.. Having a local dealer that will service you is great but not if they want to rob you and almost make you beg to spend money there.

    Wow, $1000 is wild, have to admit. But Cinncinatti to Virginia? That's gotta b a hike.

    the dealer around here is nice, and will service my plow if I need. Jim @ ESI was awesome and took great care of me. I have been passing out their card... I am sure at some point I will need some kind of repair, but that should be awhile. So far I have like 3-4 driveways so not too much on the plow... The price difference around here was closer to 2k!

    2K! I just looked at their prices online and they seem inline with what prices are here in Cleveland. In fact, the price is exactly the same as I paid for my plow.

    Hmm...I guess dealers in other places must really try and gouge people.
