I was talking to a dealer/installer by me, and he seems to like them a lot. When i have the cash, i will look into installing one on my truck, they look solid.

Just put one on my 2000 F150
I like it a lot.
Only complaint I had was the down/float .
My old westerns, all you had to do was hit it and it went down/float right away.

The SnowDogg you have to hold the down/float button for 1 second before it floats.

A safety thing they said.

Not too big a deal, and I am getting used to it now.

My suburbanite is set up the same way. I like the fact I can hit down and it goes to the ground and stops and not directly into float. There are times I don't want float and it seems like it would be a PITA to hit down and then have to hit up to turn off the float!

Float

in float the hydraulic ram is allowed to freely extend and contract. If the terrain drops then so does the plow. Vice versa, if the terrain rises then so does the plow!

Bought a 2003 F250 SD Supercab XL 4x4 and put a new 7.5 SnowDogg on it and so far I have had no problems and it has done my driveway several times and my daughters drive and it worked great. On my Mother-in-laws driveway it didn't do to well, but that's because she had ice under her snow and made it much more difficult. But so far I really like the SnowDogg. Had a new ST325 spreader put on the truck also and as long as I run the spreader in slow speed, it salts my drive pretty good too. When the weather get clearer, will take some pics and post them. Al tho I am new here and haven't plowed with a set up of my own til now, in my younger days I used to plow pretty well. It is coming back to me very quickly! And I am LOVING IT!!!! And using a truck makes it soooo much easier, in my young days the harness would leave blisters on my shoulders and the driver left whip scars on my back!!!!

You have too much fluid in the resevoiur.
Should only be half full.

If too high it will blow out the vent and get all over the place

Hello, we just bought one in late october. We are new to plowing and went with this plow by the looks/features. So far we are really happy. At first we had some newb problems with removal/installation. Those where our fault and where we had to leave the plow when off. It plows nice and our truck handles it easily. We only plow three driveways of our own and some nice neighbors! For pictures look up this thread i posted,"New md75 on a 2004 chevy 1500" .Hope this helps you!
