    Tell us a bit more about how the Blizzard Plow is mounted on the tractor, since it looks to me like a pick up truck type plow. Is it a 96" plow?

    Did you have to fabricate a custom mount or does Blizzard make front mounts for various tractors?

    This is called a Blizzard 8100 the plow is 8' and with the push of a button it will go up to 10' wide then you can hold the button and it will fold the wings forward into a scoop mode.
    You can also work each wing individually.
    It is a truck snow plow with a custom made frame mount that we made in our shop.
    This plow will come off and go right onto my F250 without any changes.
    That was my goal to have one that can go either way.
    The mount will except any one of Blizzards plows.
    I am testing it out to see where or what may need to be tweaked.
    I do have something on the drawing board that I may get into next week.
    When I plow with it expanded out to 10' it wants to lift one side of the ground especially when the ground is pitched.
    I am working on making a mount that will allow the plow to oscillate.

Is plowing it like that better then picking it up with a loader and putting it someplace? I can see where that blade would be nice on a long driveway. But only as long as it didn't start building up too much. Even with the cold spell that we had here, I sure am glad that I don't live where it snows!!!

    Can't speak for Rick - but here in MD I have actually seen them load snow in dump trucks and haul it elsewhere - for tight parking lots and downtown city areas it usually becomes necessary because there is just no place to put it. Obviously when they have to go to those extremes, snow removal becomes costly

    There you go. I've read about dump trucks that haul snow and having heated beds, but never connected the dots on why they were hauling snow. Ignorance is bliss. I can see where that could be a full time job in the winter for dump truck owners.

    Sorry Rick but that is hardly a snow storm's worth of snow up here in VT! I guess if you really want to test your rig you'll have to bring it up north where we mountain boys can give it a go and put it through its paces. Who knows you might even sell a couple of your custom rigs- I know some guys up here with Ford trucks and Kioti and other brand tractors that would jump all over a 8-10' plow rig!!

    Nice work!! About how much would a rig like that go for and what model sizes would it fit?

    Eddie, we sometimes dump the snow accumulation into the rivers and streams to make way for more of the white stuff! It gets really wild at the ski areas and their parking lots! We could 'mail' you some to play around in if interested!?

    It is a $5,700 plow mounted on a truck.
    The tractor should be around the same cost once the mounts are developed.

    Rick,
    Are you saying the cabbed tractor in the photos is a CK-20? I thought I saw a "D" in the first photo? (BTW, not questioning your knowledge of what you're riding, just curious if you might have meant DK and stated CK?). Also, just to clarify- would that rig fit a DK-35, for instance? (Here's hoping).

    Rick said:
    "It is a $5,700 plow mounted on a truck.

    Wow! I can get a CK-20 for $5,700!!!* That's fantastic

    *Just kidding of course....

    Me thinks he's yanking our chain. Rick would break a CK20 if he sat on it. That is a cabbed DK fourty something he is playing with.
