It still isn't a 'great' back blade plow- and your not supposed to back blade with the wings out- the blizzard is heaver than the fishers which give it a better scrape both forwards and backwards.

Portsmouth Ford is the cheapest place to buy- there service/knowledge not so good.

Jason, no pm here.....
Scott sure you can come check it out any time. give me a call....
Ive used mine to back drag with the wings out, nothing to heavy and a far distance, but being able to put a wing out to reach something is an awesome and timesaving thing....

youtube has some good videos on the fishers and westerns with a similar design now (the fishers still have the trip edge but the westerns have the full trip blade...though they're the same thing).

Fisher- Western - Blizzard - All owned by the same company.

The Fisher model is close to $2K more than the Blizzard- and you cant run them on the standard Fisher mounts/harness
