Who else likes to make their plows pretty?

    Lets see a few.

    With how slow this winter has been I decided to do a little more work on the plows. I normally repaint/touchup both my 810s each fall. I hate a dirty looking plow. So who else does this as often?

    Can't easily put strobes on a plow, so why not reflective tape. :nod:

    You actually plow snow with that thing? :eek:

    I clean the rust spots up each spring and touch-up paint, but that's about it.

    That hits the nail on the head.

    But, I will say it looks cool, especially the business logo in the center.

    Just too bad it wouldn't last two storms.

    Plowed 12hrs with it Monday. All stickers are still on. Dont know how long they will last, but I was bored.

    Besides, all plow manufactures have their logo on their plows and they stay put. I also did put some clear coat over it. Hopefully it will last longer that way.

    I like it. I try to keep mine clean and touch up the paint and so on, I just think it looks more professional when you keep your stuff nice.

    Thats what I think as well. I try to do this to all my equipment, TRY is the key word there. :p

    That is a 2003 Blizzard 810 btw. Almost a decade old and still looks like new.

    This summer I am taking apart both my 810s and sending them off to get repowder coated. Theres almost none left on these plows by now.

    Dude,

    Where did you get that signature video of the guy on the computer that beats himself to a pulp.

    I can't stop looking at it.... It's freaking hypnotic !

    Look's cool as hell, but at $60 a roll for that tape I would have just painted the plow.
