    I saw that setup before it left Ebling.

    Not sure what the Metal Pless cost vs an 8611, but it looks like a much more productive plow than the 8611.

    Plus 6k assuming you rig the Blizzard with power beyond like the metal Pless. After running hydraulic, I will never go back to electric motors. I love my blizzard 86110lp on my one ton, but since I got this rig, that has only left the driveway to go to the grocery store.

    Another 6K on top of the Blizzard?

    In snows like that one, the LP's don't compare to the standard 8611.

    Damn that thing is moving some snow!

    Would a 5075E or 5085E be able to handle that same setup, or would it take more power than those tractors have? No where near that snowfall amount, average snow is no more than about 4 inches.

    Mark, yes additional 6k over the 8611ss. But its built way better, weighs about 600# more and is 2' wider. For my route it makes sense and I am very happy with it so far.

    Jdgreen,
    I'm sure the 5085 would do exactly the same since they are the same tractor and block just a few less HP. Traction is the issue not power from what I understand. The 5075 has a smaller engine and I think the wheel base is shorter so likely a lighter tractor. Not sure how IG would do. The guys around here sell the 5085 but I found this used for too good of deal. So I took the extra HP.

    I can fix the weight problem, that's easy. Thank you! Enjoy your new toy!

    A 5095 or 5083 will handle that with ease, just need traction.
