I purchased an 835R to push snow. I am now researching the options for blades. One of my local dealers is recommending the BOSS 72" blade and my other is recommending the JD 72" blade. I am trying to figure out which is the best for the $$.

I went with the JD 72" electric over hydraulic easy hookup Last year pushed 8" of wet with no issue and no weight in the back. This is a snow pusher

I went with the John Deere version and had good luck with it until I abused it by pushing heavy snow and ramming it into large banks. I sprung the frame do it would not fully lower the plow. About $400 of straightening snd welding additional steel to the frame made it much more stable. I recommend beefing up the Deere plow if you really want to use it for normal plowing. The Deere frame is way too light. Take a look at the frame for a kubota plow and you'll see the difference.

I've been using an Eagle Plow for several years on an 825i and now an 835R. I love it. Straight blade with the powered angle adjust. I use the winch for the blade lift adjustment. I've been very happy and would recommend.

I have the JD as well, 4 way electric/hydraulic straight blade on my 2016 825i. Works great.
