    Hello again all.

    There's a plow for sale,
    it's a 2 - 3 year old blizzard speedwing 8600.
    He wants $4000.00 (no wiring, no mount) this is just for the plow & the light bar.

    Any known problems with the speedwings ? again it's 2 - 3 years old.

    New, its $7500. taxes in, wiring, in, mount in & installed
    Thats from Kooey Bros.

    Now on the existing 2 year old plow,,, they say my existing wiring harness will work, aswell as joystick.
    Im just gonna need a new mount which is gonna run me about $350 - 400.00

    When I priced out a new one, they said that the new 8600 speedwing wont work with my wiring, but with this 2 year old one it will. (thats funny to me)

    So is this plow worth it ?
    Am I getting into a crappy plow with the speedwing ???
    Right now I have a 7600 LT, but its a little light duty for my tase & my truck aswell.

    Any advice would be great .
