    I've been kicking around the idea of an 810 Blizzard, but I went to the blizzard website and the only option it came up with for my truck was the 7.5' straight blade which I'd rather not go with. I'm thinking at least 8' and their is a 9' BOSS straight blade close by me for cheap money. I have time to look as I still have a 1500 Chevy with a 7.5 Curtis. I guess my question is how large can I go? Is 9' OK for my truck? Boss' website is NO help. Fisher says I can put anything up to 9' on it. Can anyone clear up my confusion? I plow my own parking lot, maybe an acre or so, and residential driveways. Any input you have would be appreciated. Thanks! Dave

    9 ft sounds a little big for a reg 2500. I can see an 8 foot on there though. I've never mounted a plow so you'll have to wait till others chime in here.

    If I owned your truck and wanted a Blizzard plow, I would go with the 860 Speed Wing. If you stick Timbrens on it, a crank or 2 on the torsion bars, and about 600-800 lbs of ballast in the bed, you should be fine.

    The 810 is just too much weight to be on your truck. Heck, the 860 SW is pushing it but I think you'd be ok. I would atleast go with the 760 SW before I'd go with a 7.5' SB. The 760 SW is only 46 lbs. more than the 760 LT straight.

    on a 2500 you really dont want to go 9ft. 8.5ft is the biggest i would go on a 3/4 ton. a 1 ton a 9ft plow is fine.

    Post pictures of the truck, please, I have never seen a 'quadra steer' other than in the commercials.
