    What size should I put on, a 810 or the 8611? I do all commercial work, no driveways. I am worried about the extra weight on the front end.

    I have the 810 on mine and it seems to handle it real good.

    Depending on who is driving and what type of work. Last season I put a 860 Speed Wing on my F-350 DRW Crew Cab. The driver was not very experienced. After just a few hours he was plowing with good production.

    With teaching new drivers how to use a Power Plow or Experienced Drivers that want to make one lot last 8 hours by not using the wings, it can be a real PITA. The Speed Wing held up great and I would replace all my 810 that had a driver with Speed Wings when the time comes. Which might be soon depending on the out come of PH2.

    Take into account I run 2 Low Pro's 3 810's the 860SW and a 8611SS. DO NOT DO A FULL 8611.

    Hope that helps.
