We purchased 6 Blizzard 810ss snow plows for our new holland skid steers and have had only minor problems. Most of the problems have been wire related from the operators lifting the plows to high and seperating the wires. Other then that the operators love them.

Blizzard Plows

Blizzard Plows are quite flawless. I sold 3 810ss' and have had nothing but positive comments. Sold about 25 810s' and the only complaint I have had is "I wish the light bar came off with the plow".

Other than that, I think the Blizzard Plow will be the only plow to run.

I can't wait for Blizzards new plows to come out in the summer.

Glad to see you are not part of the Blizzard bashing crowd.

Keep up the movement of snow.

:D :D :p

I support the good and the bad everyone has to say about every product. I will be purchasing new equipment in the next year or so, and find all of the information valuable. For example, I will not get a blizzard now (even though they look like the would work kick A$$) for my truck, but would for a skid loader, my next plow for the truck will be a V, but with out the updates on what people are using, I would be just taking it from what I know... Thanks for the information, keep it comming....:D

Caught the extended wing on a curb, bent, twisted or jammed the wing in the track/channel ? I'm not sure since I was on a site on the north end of our route, and I had him on the south end. He seemed too disgusted to talk much about it, and was heading back to try and fix it or get parts for it.

Plow, plows,and more plows

Just a thought, I am the only Blizzard dealer for 50 miles, we are located in Byron Center, Have your guy stop by so we can take a look at his plow and come up with a solution.

Tom,

I am always here to help, even in snow storms. I open my shop @ 4 am in a storm, if you need it.

Thank.

Jon

RE: TOMS BLIZZARD PROBLEMS

Tom, I spoke to steve about 4am on Sunday morning. We know what the problem is and it is being corrected right now. We have most parts in stock, and the 24/7 service worked great the last few nights. Let me know if I can help with anything else.
Thanks, Jon
PS: Spring kit for Boss will be in this week. Need more magic. Enjoy the pic,

Just my opinion...

Looks like that plow has been WORKED HARD! Notice the rusty areas down by the plow shoe area. That is plow stress that caused the paint to loose its adherance. :eek:

Speaking of paint, is the Blizzard paint THAT bad? My BOSS is over 10 years old and doesn't have any rust on the back side. A little is starting on the front due to stone drives, but...

Also to me it looks as though the damage that was done would NOT have happened if the wing was retracted. I guess you need to know when its safe to extend them. Was it a hidden obstruction that was hit?


As for trouble free plows.... My BOSS was definately NOT one of them. Sure its been totally trouble free lately, but the first 2 seasons were NOT fun! Especially with a dealer that was 28 miles away and would NOT drop ship parts that they DID NOT have in stock!



My NEXT plow WILL be a BLIZZARD or one of its design. Too many drawbacks with a V-Plow that you don't have with the BLIZZARD. And I'll only be loosing the ability to pierce through drifts and such in the V position which I only use 1% of the time!!

what are the drawbacks with a v-blade campared to the blizzared plows, we have 6 fisher v-blades right now (4 8.5 and 2 9.5) and as far as drawbacks to these plows I haven't found one yet. I guess what I am trying to say is what makes the blizzard plows so much superior compared to the v-plows. I do believe that the blizzard plows have come along way through the years and they seem to be getting better every year but I don't have problems with my plows ripping apart (side wings falling off) while I am plowing and I have always believed that when ever you add more parts to a design (expandable wings) you take more risk in the product failing. Before this turns into a pissing match I just want to say that I am in no way putting blizzard plows down because I do like the design I just don't think it is as bullet proof as a v-blade and before the flaming begins I have used subs that have blizzard plows, One had serious issues (side wings wouldn't work) the other worked great so I am basing this on experience and not second hand knowledge. If these plows are that much superior to everything out there then I look forward to everyones response to the question "what makes them so much better" because if they are better than maybe I should be buying a couple of these for myself.

The good thing I see with the Blizzard is the fact that even if the wings break, you can still use it as a straight plow. People have to remember these things aren't bulldozers.

I have hit hidden curbs, or curbs buried in a drift before as well. In fact , a few years ago I hit this very same one Steve did with my Boss V.

This certainly was normal use, not "bulldozing" by any means.
