    Has anyone out there with a wideout put metal on the wings after the poly ones have worn out? The first snow and mine are gone! at this rate it will cost a small fortune by the end of winter

    Hey there I just put a wideout on my 03 GMC dump, I haven't used it yet...... I know the wings have 1400 psi releaf valve, but a metal cutting edge sounds like damage!!!!!! Hope there is some more discussion.

    I agree..Metal sounds scary...I have a XLS and the edges from jerre are $600 bucks..People say they are well worth the price,,,

    Blizzards use steel edges and even they wear quite a bit. I think its kindof piss poor to use poly ones.

    Western, Blizzard & Fisher are all made by Douglas Dynamic.I think they are all good products i'm just partial to western. Go with the one that has service close to you. I looked at all of them and thought western was the baest made but like i sad i'm partial to them.

    Honestly I'm as Western as it gets, but for the power plows, the Blizzard 810 and 8611lp are by far the superior plow. Look at the construction of the 2 side by side and the Blizzard's quality and strength is unmatched, hands down......Douglas Dynamics or not. BUT that being said, they completely redesigned the Blizzard plows this year and getting your hands on the pre 09/10 model is slim to none from what it looks like.

    Pretty much nailed it. DD bought Blizzard to get the rights to the patton. Anyway. Blizzard edges are steel which you can weld Carbide edges to. They will last for years with the carbides if you don't bend one!:rolleyes:

    Lasts a lot longer than what? The Polyurethane edges that Western/Fisher already use? :dizzy:

    This has already been posted, but...
    http://www.jerres.com/XLS-Wideout-Edges.html

    Look at those edges, then look at the stuff you're talking about. See the difference? These edges were actually engineered for this application by fellow snowplow operators. These are the real deal. :cool:

    Jerre used to run around here, you might be able to PM him and find out more about these...
