    How old is your power plow and what kind of repairs are you having to do to it?

    I have been there and understand the electrical gremlins of the 810. I switched to a sw860 in 07 and love it . Way less to go wrong . Working on my 5th season with no issues , knock on wood !!! I wish I would have found this thread sooner. I hope the wide out works well for you !!!

    Good luck , shaun

    Let us know how the wideout works for you. I have also been repairing my 810 all the time it seems like. Our speedwing doesn't have as many problems but still has its share. So, I have been thinking of switching to something else also but it would be hard.
