    i've been going to aspen equiptment, but not only are they 45 min drive but they have given me wrong parts on several occasions, and also never seem to answer the phone when i call the parts dept. not a big deal if they were closer.. but to drive 45 min and find out they dont have my part in stock or to recieve the wron part is f'd up IMO...

    anyone know of any other western parts dealers around here?? i live about 30 minutes west of minneapolis.

    Smittys in maple grove is one people talk highly of. I have had bad luck in the north metro, nobody has parts but can get them next day. The distributor/dealer and subdealer model really is a poor pick of the plow industry. The subs commit to selling plows but don't commit to a parts inventory. Boss/snowdogg is the same way but have a sub dealer that is good on having parts (he gets it). Sno way is having a true distributorship in pace and a dealer network. Just going to take time to build up dealers in the tc.

    Smith is the one I used. I heard crow river rentals has parts as does Hwy 55 Rental. They carry basic pins for the most part.

    Is Cindy still up at Smith Winter? What color is her hair these days? Perrys Auto in Long Lake is a Western dealer, and has an assortment of parts.
