    Looking into getting a wideout this year. Any idea on a price the dealer around me won't get back with me :(

    I would find a different brand or at least a different dealer. If they won't even call you to sell you a $6000+ plow what makes you think they'll care when you need a $20 hose?

    Wow, that's a good price! I paid almost $10,000 for mine here in Calgary Alberta three years ago and I worked at a Western dealership at the time. I guess, like Ford, I got "Employee Pricing" (regular retail + 25%)
    I agree with Peteo! though about the service.... The warranty on that plow is supposed to be two winters so don't let them dick you around. Ask them for details on their warranty policy. Will they make you pay up front for warranty parts and or labor? Some dealers make you pay first and then give you a credit when they get approval from Western. That takes weeks and if they are not honest they will say "it wasn't approved" and keep your money.
    But aside from the bad service you might get at that particular dealer, the Wide-out is an awesome unit and nobody can beat the ultra-mount II and Western's multiplex controls. I work on Boss and SnoWay too. People like that power coupler until the first time it fails. With ultra-mount, even if it's dead you can hook up, high chain it and transport it to a service shop. I love my Wide-out. Douglas Dynamics also makes the Blizzard version of the Wide-out but it uses that power coupler and the knife edge mounts. The Western version is best.
