    i'm calling around and getting some high numbers for these plows. all seem to be within $500 of each other though. i may canister driving farther north or west if i can find better pricing. the only down side is i don't have a clue where to go farther out and have no idea of reputations outside of NJ.

    i just got a quote of $5400 installed from FDR hitches in Roselle park. i am waiting to hear back from A&K Equiment in Rahway.
    no one else answered my calls.

    well traffic safety quoted $5600 +tax and westchester machine $5900 +tax. westchester is closer and open during storms so i may lean towards them, plus the guy was WAY more personable on the phone. he took a good 10 minutes with me to go over some concerns and he up front told me about how the bumper gets mangled (i already knew this but still nice for him to make sure the customer's expectations are met). i forget where else i called and was quoted $5400

    There's a western dealer out on 31 just below Washington. What county are you in. Westchester is always high. I get everything from traffic safety, I'm in Mine Hill, ride isn't bad.

    That's stupid money for a straight blade. I paid 4550 for my 8'6" Pro Plus with Western wings 3 years ago and thought it was on the verge of being too much for a straight blade.

    I paid $5800 for 8'6" Pro Plus with extras as curb deflectors and poly top deflector. That price is also installed.

    but the freight to get it from minnesota to new jersey will make it cheaper to just have one installed here.
