    Ok gang- Bad enough I had to watch some dude invade my neighborhood and plow half of them out (for a fee)- then watching him use his power angle Western (I think) seemed to make my decision easier- That plus the fact that I have some extra money due to an old account we had- I'm now thinking about getting a better setup for my F250- I found one local guy here that sells and installs just Arctic plows- I think he quoted me 3200 for the setup.
    Is that a good price and what other options should I look for? Joystick control- or touchpad?
    They look like decent enough plows....... any comments?

    I like joystick best, especially if it's a standard, otherwise it's hard to keep it in your hand, steer the wheel, and shift at the same time. Arctic is a nice plow.

    Hey, what do you mean an old account if you haven't bought a plow yet? lol

    At $3200 you're darn near the cost of a professional quality plow (Fisher/Western/Boss/Blizzard/Curtis).
    Spend the extra couple hundred bucks, and it will pay for itself in productivity,durability, and resale.

    Just my 2 cents, arguably worth that.

    Nope. But I bought it from a concrete company that could of used it there. They work all over new england and also do concrete cutting and there trucks are all that color and only Chevy/GMC pickups.. no Fords, no Dodge.
