    Hello all.
    I plow a commercial plaza and looking for a bigger truck to do the main areas. My question; has anyone known of someone putting a plow on a GMC 6000 2wd dually truck diesel. It has a 12' box on it that I would remove. It's a solid truck that runs well, just not sure if it would be able to push snow. Any comments would be great. Thanks!

    If you dont need a salter, just fill the box with sand and run it. It will push for sure

    i've seen some companies around here with those concrete blocks used for building bins in the back of the truck for weight.
