    Im in lower michigan, but i'd be willing to take a drive for a good deal, anyway Does anyone have a plow that would fit a 94 f150? 7.5ft, straight blade. Good condition, with mounting, pumps, controls and wiring harness, must be in good condition and working order. Thanks. Please let me know, pm me or call 313-575-9323 if you do. Thanks again, I know its kind of late, but oh well.

    That's too much for the 150, if that's what you're going to put a plow on.

    There are 2 Blizzard dealers in Northern Lower Michigan that I know are selling the 760LT for $2565 installed plus tax. That is $2718.90 out the door w/ lights joystick controller, wiring, complete setup. EK Hydraulics in Petoskey MI website 800-632-7112 ask for Dave, that is who I have been dealing with.

    USA Trailer Sales Vienna, MI (near Johannesburg) 800-225-0434

    I am sure there are others. Check out Blizzard's web site for more info.

    I have looked at a ton of used plows and I can't seem to find any that are:
    1. Still there when I call on them.
    2. In decent reliable shape.
    3. The right size and mount for my vehicle.

    I would have rather went with a used plow, but I can't wait any longer so I am getting a Blizzard 760LT. It is the best price I have seen on a decent NEW plow that can be used for homeowner or even lighter (maybe more) commercial use. I think there are better plows out there, but for low weight and price I don't think you can beat this.

    The boss v is just a little too heavy infortunately, its not too smart to put one on an F-150, any idea how much it weighs? I would think around 800-900 LBS, maybe less. If its around 700 you might be able to get away with it, but its really not a good idea. Its just too much to have hanging in front of an F-150. That blizzard dealer mentioned sounds pretty good if its close enough. Just keep looking, you may still find something used that is in your price range if you want to go the used route.

    i got a price of $3000 installed, I might be going that route. I have one more place to call, the guy wasnt in today, so im going to try tommarow. I know he sold a 8" 6' model for 2700. so the 760lt will probably be alot cheaper. If it is, ill go through him. If not, ill probably be going to 3k route.

    Here is the ad from the Gaylord newspaper:
    New Blizzard snowplows. 6'8" and 7'2" for compact trucks and SUV's. $2,463 and $2,514. 7'6" light weight for 1/2 ton trucks. $2,565. 8' commercial duty for 3/4 and 1 ton trucks. $2,669. Includes installation. Vienna Auto, Inc., (989)786-2774. USA Trailer Sales, 1-800-225-0434.

    This seems to be a regional pricing scheme because I have seen these same prices at three seperate places. Not sure what the dealers are charging the farther south you go, but so far this is what I am seeing up here. I think these are set prices from Blizzard since I have a full color sheet from Blizzard with these prices printed right on them. Prices were not added on later. Anyway, if you are interested in Blizzard plows I would call every dealer that you are willing to travel to and get prices from them. If I see any other prices I will post them here. Good luck.

    I think that because Blizzard is located in Calumet, MI that freight cost are much less to ship to dealers in Michigan than to the East Coast. I guess we are lucky for that. I don't know about other plow prices, but one of the Western dealers here wants ~$4000 for a 7'6" Pro Plow installed. Is that a decent price?
