    Late last winter I bought a Blizzard 810 and traded in my Boss 8ft superduty straight blade. I used prowings on the boss. Well after using the Blizzard for 3 storms this week I am very pleased with the Blizzard. We do everything from a Wal Mart supercenter and shopping center complex to country residentials and two lane roads. Its an awesome plow. My partner has a Boss 9.2 V and we both agree that the Blizzard is a more productive plow. The only critisisim I have on the Blizzard is that the hydraulics are a little slower than my old Boss straight blade , but it is an acceptable tradeoff. As soon as our Boss 9.2 is closer to death we will be getting another Blizzard 810. :)

    So what make the blizzard that much more efficient that say your old Boss or any other plow? I own two Westerns and one Meyer, all straight blades, mainly because I can get parts @ any time of the night with my connections.

    Its the wings that make the difference. Its wider than the 9.2 V and it doesnt have the hinge in the center that a V does, which really improves the windrowing performance. It will carry snow around a corner much better than the V plows because you can angle the plow as you turn, which keeps the snow from trailing off.
    In my opinion the V is 3 times better than a straight blade and 1.5 times better than a straight blade with prowings. And the Blizzard is 1.5 times better than a V blade.
