    Why would you even try?! If you have an Escalade, you can probably afford a cheap plow truck. JMO:rolleyes:

    Its still based on a Chevrolet Silverado frame isnt it? So you can probaly get almost any type of plow for it just nothing to big. Could Get a nice Boss 7'6" straight blade

    I have several plow trucks already, its just when im out checking my sites i often have to radio for a truck to come touch up a section that would take me 5 minutes, and yes i like to travel comfortably. I called a couple of places and they stated that they dont show a mount for the truck in their system.

    Looks like Snoway offers a 7.6ft 26 series for it, Find Tom(toby4492 on here), he'll set ya up right.

    No reason you can't plow with an Escalade. Any plow for a 1/2 ton truck/Suburban/Tahoe will physically fit the Escalade. Of course the majority of them will exceed the specified FAWR on it so you may have trouble getting a plow dealer to actually install one...but it is physically possible.

    Expect MAJOR air dam mods to fit the undercarriage and possibly some suspension upgrades depending on plow weight..

    we have an Italian family here in Colorado who owns alot of property and we have put snoways on there escalades for the last 5 or 6 years now... right now they have the Cadillac ext. the truck and it plows great. he was out of town one week last year and i plowed for him using his truck and they did great.... one thing that i didnt like was the big bar that comes down by the bed, a little hard to see...
    but the SNOWAY plows look great! they are really an eye catcher

    why not plow with the escalade, who wants to have a cheap truck hanging around just to move snow a few times a year, besides if it is older it isnt necessarily worth any more than an older pickup truck, i woundnt mind doing that just to have a conversation piece

    If he gets to plow with an escalade, I want to plow in a Lexus.

    Thanks everyone! I actually found a dealer (SnowWay) to install a plow on the escalade. I'll post a picture after its installed.

    He lives in chicago. They wont plow the side streets anymore unless its during week 9-5 No holidays no Weekends. He probably just wants to plow his street. I use to live on a big hill that would never be plowed properly. So I would plow it myslef. Ususlay before town would ever get to it. The street loved me.

    Escalades are 1500's Only the Yukon with that quad steering package came in the 2500's

    gotta make the payment one way of another. Only problemis can't say "I didn't do it" cause you'll most likely be the only one around plowing with the caddy. Yes , I'm jealous

    is the quad steering 2500 frame available in the tahoes, avalanches & yukons? or only gm trucks? the caddys are ite they def snap necks destroys gas, resale values are pathetic, most dealerships are run by scumbags, i suggest craigslist.org, the car it too much like the yukons tahoes and denali's, it is a sick car nonetheless sound system was better in 03' cheapass bose & gm

    HAPPY PLOWING

    Anyone have pictures?? Nbenallo33 you have any pics for us to see of these creations? I think a nice escalade would make a good residential plow "truck" if ya took care of it.
