Which would you get, and why

    We're going to be getting some new plows to service our commercial lots, and 70 or so home driveways for next season.

    we use 2 ford f-250's to do the bulk of this work, one is a f-250 long box crew cab, the other is a standard box extended cab.

    we're looking at a few different plows for the purchase, but would appreciate some input from others.

    the plows we're looking at are the blizzard 8810, the boss POWER V-XT 8'2", and the western MVP PLUS 8'6".

    If you were to choose, which would you get.

    thanks for the opinions.

    I run everything western,great for finding used parts and very dependable,but I aslo buy the this brand because of dealer support,they are always open and great to work with. Servicability is what I would base my decision on. Good luck!!

    i like blizzards i think the speed wings and extending blade is a cool idea. thou i never had to deal with getting one fixed. ran them on the 2 and 1/2 tons never had an issue

    I have had my 810 for 3 years now. One and only issue I had was the cutting edge broke after hitting a manhole. Turns out the edge wasn't treated right and after I took it in to them and showed them the pieces they fixed. I love the blade. I have pushed with all colored brands except for Fisher. I'm staying white. I save a butt load of time with it. I do combination work also. Commercial and residential, its awesome for both.

    while i like the blizzard alot i think ill stick with my boss. no need for extra parts, they rarely break. my dealer said he hates selling boss because they never come back! and other than getting a hose replaced, i havent been back (im only on my second season). I plow pretty big lots so when i hit stuff it hurts and so far it has held up great. the only regret is getting the 8'2, i should have gotten the 9'2.

    Had real good luck with Fisher over the years. Seen 'em & used 'em over 30 years. I have no experience with the V plows, but lots of people have had great luck with those too.
