    You're kind of instigating a fight between the Blizzard and Western brand loyal guys.:realmad:

    I would post this in the western plow section as well, if you want a both sides.

    PS. Let's see how long before a plow rep from a all together different brand jumps in?:dizzy:

    Plowed with both. Used a wideout most of the winter. Rides up over the piles. Climbs the piles without hitting the control. Doesn't clean as well as the 810. Would run the XLS over the Wideout but run the 810 over either one of them.

    blizzard/fisher/western in that order is what i have heard so far as far as quality

    although all three companys are the same... its like ford/lincon/mercury...same cars different package...give fisher and western a few years until the plow really comes into its own blizzard has been at it for a long time.

    We used one this past year. Considering the problems with our new Blizzard. We will be switching to the Western over the next couple years.
    Brand loyality! We buy what gets the job done, works, and also has support.
    I have expressed my opinion about Blizzard here on other threads. They do move snow nicely.
