    Well I did buy a blizzard plow but there isnt many dealers in Western New York. It's about a 20-25 min drive to the dealer I bought mine from. I wish we could get some closer dealers. I havent used my plow yet but it looks like they make a great plow. Can wait to try it out.

    I understand that to become a dealer they want you to purchase $30,000 worth of inventory. About ten plows and accessories. Yet they are actively seeking dealers (?). A friend and I have talked about doing it, but the money is just too prohibitive right now. I have no doubt we could sell more than ten plows in no time at all, have a great location on a busy highway with installation facility, and halfway between two nearest Blizzard dealers. Only concern (other than finding the money) is that there is a Fisher dealer at the other end of the building who might not like it, and there used to be a Blizzard dealer nearby, but they gave up because Portsmouth Ford was cutting their throat on prices. Seems like a common concern here that the dealers are few and far between. I know one thing, everybody wants service available 24-7, I think it would be a good idea to keep a couple in stock for loaners or even rental units in case someone breaks down.
