Gentlemen I will probably purchase a Chevy 2012 3500 WT 4x4 w/8ft dump bed short whl/base. This will be used in conjunction with the mowing business. What is your opinion as to using this vehicle a a Snow Pusher. We have not got a lot of snow in St Louis over the past few years, but I am considering a Plow. Thanks for your imput.
Looks good.That is one awesome snow rig. Whats the gvw? What the front axle rating? Is it a gas or diesel? Rear gears? Nice rig,what kind of dump on it? Will push alot of snow w/ an expandable plow. Western, Blizzard ,Fisher. Also a nice electric tailgate salt spreader would help. Good luck.

Looks Good!!! Make sure you have the snow plow prep package. Some guys on this forum do not like to put plows on Chevy trucks because of the front torsion suspension. Not hating or thread crapping. Just putting that info out there. Good luck with your purchase.

I'm sure you can run any plow you want on there. I have a 07 same style with a Western MVP Plus with the Western wings. If you have a lot of wide open plowing you might want to look at a expanding plow.
I think chevy is a good plow truck. The only issue I have is that the plow generally mounts lower to the ground compared to Ford and Dodge. This is a disadvantage for pushing over curbs, etc. I run blizzard lo pros and like the combo.
With the all new frame,suspension,and a host of other beefy improvements that started in 2011 in GM's HD line up,adding a plow would only make perfect sense if you could use it in your business. Good luck.
