    hi guys,
    what are some of you seeing for Tornado prices in 1.5 version? most of the dealers here are about 5000.00 for the 1.5 but i see that Tim Wallace has it for 3550.00 is it possible there is that big a difference? his 1.8 isn't even at 5000.00,
    steve

    That's strange because my local dealer quoted me $4,600 the other day.Makes sense because as I already said,it was $3,895 for the 1.5 yd. Everything mechanical/electrical is the same on all 3 sizes,just the hopper capacity.

    Don't forget the Fisher PolyCaster and Blizzard units are identical. If you don't care what color it is, just go for the best deal.+

    Last year when I talked to my local dealer, he quoted me around $3800 for the 1.5 version. I would assume $5k is a little high. Tell your dealer he is high.

    Try Midwest Truck equipment down in the city. Talked today with them. Prices seem pretty fair and their local . Also called the ford dealership that sells western, and their prices were way high. How are they selling anything when their prices are almost a 1,000 more?
