I just got my blackline.....$997 for 52" blade with electric actuator that works like a trim tab on a boat. It includes a sealed handlebar switch that accomodates their optional hydraulic blade turning mechanism. Its like $549 more. The blade mounts to a trailer hitch receiver that comes with it and replaces your front skid pan. I just had to order highlifter heavy duty springs for the front though....am in the process of installing those soon as I find out how to change them off the shock. I got all the stuff from trax motosports. They seemed pretty sharp and easy to deal with. It pushes snow like a champ...thats for sure. Good luck
The swisher plow will swivel side to side. Just pull on the release rope and push with the side of the blade you want to move back. No need for an actuator, hydraulics and all of the other stuff to break down. The KISS principal in action. (Keep It Simple Stupid) [img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/img]
Don't know about other brands but suspect most of the better ones also swivel.
Cycle Country makes a release assy (works kinda like an automotive hood release) for $56. I have then attached a rope to each end of the blade (about 12" from each end). The other end of the rope is secured to the rear of the front rack, with enough slack to allow for when the blade catches an obstruction that causes the blade to drop down forwards. For blade angling, pull release, and pull the appropriate rope. Inexpensive, and works fairly well.
Bombardier offers a remote angle accessory for there blades too. I have a 54' Bomb blade on my Brute (my dealer is a Kawi/Bomb dealer) but at $122.97 (not including shipping) I figure I can get my butt out of the seat and do it! Bombardier blades are a good quality. I'd say they're better than Warn, not quite as stout as Moose though.
