    What are some common parts to keep on hand for either a Blizzard 800 or 810? If it's 3am and a part malfunctions, what typically might be wrong that having the right part to fix it might solve?

    I would assume that not everyone on this site lives close enough to their dealer that it would be feasible for them to take a trip over to have them fix (assuming they are open) whatever is broken.

    If you are in the business to supply snowplowing for a customer and the requirements are to have them open say before a supporting dealer opens. Then you should have the fallowing avalable incase you have a brake down.

    1 complete 4x4 truck with plow atched ready to work.

    Anything else you are taking a chance.

    I'm a small time operator at the moment doing only residential, however, I've got a buddy doing the same and we help each other out in the event of one of our trucks / plows breaking down.

    I just want to make sure I've got "the usual suspects" on hand in the event of an emergency. If I can duck into my shop and fix it relatively quickly, I'd like to have the option of having the parts in stock.
