    I've been looking at Fisher, Boss, and Blizzard Plows. Is there a difference in quality, or is it just personal preference? I went cheap on my last plow, and it is now rusting in my yard with a bent blade and fried electrical. What are some things I should be looking for?

    I've done the searches here but can't seem to find the answers to these questions....

    Those are all decent brands. It comes down to personal preference and what you have for local dealers/ parts access.

    i personaly use boss and meyers plows.....

    but it all comes down to what you can afford and the dealer support you have!

    grandveiw is right on the boss in my eyes and they make a sweet 7.5 v plow for half ton trucks

    I bought a new '94 F-150 , had the dealer install a 7 1/2' Fisher minute mount steel plow with steel snow foil , plowed my driveway(480'), my sisters(200') and my parents driveway for 17 yrs, in that time I replaced three pump belts, and one seal packing on the cylinder ram. Period. I don't think you can beat Fisher.
