    Does anyone wish to have down pressure on there 810 or 8100? This guy does I just don't know how to go about making it operational. Can anyone help?

    It wouldn't be possible with the factory design. You'd lose the plow instead. You'd have to restrict the claw from opening somehow and I only see damage happening if you attempted that. Just my take on it.

    As for dp on a Blizzard, from my experiences they weigh enough to never need it.

    Basically you need to lock the lift arm to the push beam. It can be done. The other mod is basically putting the power hitch switch in the cab. With the 810 you'll need an extra connector.

    Problems are if you have a drop off the plow will not drop all the way.

    I love Dp. I use no extra wires to the cab,just the factory plug & extra momentary switch in controller. ;)
