    I have seen a few of them in the past, although none recently. They were a full size plow and they were painted blue. I don't know much more than that about them. I don't know if the company went out of biz or what.

    Northman is out of business as the others have said. However, their largest dealer purchased up all the parts when they went under. It would be worth the phone call to see if they can still supply parts for it, if so might be a good investment. Dealer is:

    Lampert Hitch
    Denver, CO
    (800) 235-7569

    If this doesn't work out, I have some connections for Boss Plows: rolleyes:

    Find out what it came off of, call Lampert Hitch and tell them what you have and what you are putting it on. They will be able to tell you what you'll need.

    if it is a northman, run away from it. the company went out of business, and parts are impossible to find when needed. you can not even buy a cutting edge for them anymore, unless you can find one on-line. the northman is close to a western conventional, but just different enough that the cutting edge will not interchange.
    he is trying to sell it to you for $200 because he knows it is not worth anything except to someone that needs it for parts to repair the northman plow they have.

    i had a guy trying to give me 2 last September. i told him i would take them to the scrap yard for him if he gave me $20 to cover the cost of the diesel fuel i was going to burn getting rid of them.
