    Probably a dumb question for you northerners ( I'm in the mid south ) but can I use a 7.5' plow on a dually? Just need some advice. Thanks

    You can.....But it would be a little small for that truck

    The pick up is close to 8ft wide, a 7.5ft blade in straight or angled position will have your outer tires running over the windrow. For a dually a 9ft blade is the minimum you want to go.

    You would actually need an 8'6

    If a 7'6 was what you were able to find the most of, you could just put some Buyers Pro-Wings on it which would put you just over 9'

    I run (3) 3500's with 8'6 blades no problems I wouldn't go any smaller than that.
