    If killing off the blizzard 8611 how about a Western or Fisher in that size and not just a snow-ex?

    Is the 8611 still available and if so, is it a PH1 hitch yet?

    Not very many Snowex dealers....Pretty much none im my area...What are your plans for these plows?...Only selling them through Snowex Dealers??...The few Snowex dealers I have been in...Im pretty sure I would not want them installing a plow on my new truck....

    We have 2 snowex dealers not too far away that we deal with, both sell snowex and boss plows. I called one this morning and he said they were not taking on the snowex plows. The other the guy I deal with is out of town till Monday. I cant help but think that that's what they are going after.

    ^^^^^ pay no attention to him

    everybody knows that I am the true crash test dummy!!!!

    I will be more than happy to accept a demo unit for next season.

    Will the new still units still cause inflict electrical blackouts in the newer Chevys and Fords?

    Will the wings have spring trips like the new Fisher?

    Any LED light coming?

    Any larger WO's or XLS's coming out?

    Since I buy a new DD plow every year, how about a points reward system?

    Also you mentioned mounts for the Ford chevy dodge.hopefully you have one for the Toyota Tundra ,Nissan Titan.Hopefully

    Also what kind of controller wired or wireless.

    Will it have one like the Fish styk or western.hand held or joy stick

    Does it come with positive down pressure

    Are the wings for them already can they fold back like the snow dog or come of like the fisher and western not mention is the design of the wings tough enough like the Boss wings

    Also will it have fleet flex/ multiplex

    Also I volunteer to be the test dummy on the Tundra that would be nice Red truck Black plow

    Here's my question. It states you spent years getting feedback from professionals.

    Where did you get these pros from? What questions came up? How do i/we get on the test panel?
