    Default Snow Plow

    I've started looking into getting a snow plow for my truck, but quickly realized there are a lot of choices out there. I'd like to get a used one. Anyone have experience in matching blade design/style to trucks? I've done plenty of plowing over the years, but never had to buy one.
    Regards, Barry

    Plowing for hire or just your own drive? What do you have for a truck?

    I like sno-way and they make plows for about any size truck.

    I'm thinking about plowing for hire. I have a 2010 Ford SD F350 that has the plow package on it from the factory (heavier front, cooler, etc.). How do you figure blade size? I figure if I already have the truck for it, I might as well make some money using it. Which blade do you have? Contractors?

    I would not use a newer sno-way for plowing for hire. Mine is a 1989 8 ft. only gets used to plow the driveway and it is mounted on a tractor. They are plastic now days.

    For an f-350 I would look at anything in the 8 ft range. I don't plow for hire anymore because of gas prices, but have used a dodge 2500, ford f250 and an f350 for plowing... Lifespan of a plow truck is only about 2 seasons here in the northeast. Drive train takes a beating as does the suspension. The dodge I had to put 5 transmissions in in two years... that was why I switched to the fords.

    As far as used plows go see what you can find and then just buy the frame mount for the truck new from the dealer. I recommend quick attach.
