    I just paid $225.00 for an 8' boss straight blade, thats everything blasted tower, blade, a-frame ect. The price was $75.00/hr. The blaster told me that the boss takes longer than most plow because the paint is harder.

    I paid 450 to blast a 8' highway spreader, 10' Monroe spreader and V boss mould boards. Well worth it, they came out to our shop to do it as well.

    Its hit or miss around here I had a 30ftx8ft wide gooseneck flat bed done and he did that hole trailer for $550 i was pumped so I called him back about doing my plow, 8ft fisher if I took all the hyd and lights off and he quoted me $350 seems like thats kinda high compared to what the trailer cost. Last time I checked the trailer had about 6x the area

    Man....We NEED more people doing it up here in Maine. The only place around here is a Powder coating shop. Then they wouldn't paint it with POR 15 even if I supplied it. Then he calls me and says $300 to Blast $400 to Powder coat with a Poly spray......And of coarse I have to wait 3-4 weeks to get it done.

    Crash, where is that palce you went to? You got a name an number. Sounds of it you already got yours back and I am still dicking around with vendors. I am seriously thinking about sending mine down on pallets and letting them do it. It would probably be the same price even with fright. Let me know please. Thanks

    A friend of ours had hit 8 or 8 1/2 foot done for $75 bucks. We are thinking about getting our 10 ton trailer done for around 400 bucks i want to say. Blasting, and primer. You take it to him.

    In my area most guys get together bring all their equipment to one yard then hire a guy to come in for the day and blast everything.

    Ryan, sorry i didnt get back to you, sounds like Tom has a connection closer to you.

    Did get the blade back, reassembled and back to the customer, came out pretty good considering the amount of surface rust we had to deal with.

    Ha Ha Ha.. you been out playing bumper cars again Crash?....Do you do Regional down to the Jersey Port and back or more local? I don't envy you at all. I used to beg for loads east of PA. I hated the traffic. Although I miss playing renegade on th GW and Cross Bronx.

    Tom, Thanks anyway but I dropped my plow off to Performance Product Painting, Inc. Tonight. $700 and a good week and half and I will have her back. payup

    I had to break it down completely, normally not a problem, but it's a 96' MM1. :mad: I brought the handy dandy Snap On cordless impact and da Map gas mini torch. :yow!:

    I'll post some pics when she is all done, it's getting a MM1 / MM2 conversion as well. :drinkup:

    WOW Ryan $700 bucks and you took it apart? Sounds kinda steep to me.Your plow looks in alot better shape paint wise then mine did.
