    I'm purchasing a plow and salter combination for our Toyota Tundra. I want a plow that's easy on and off and durable. It's just plowing our Golf course driveway and parking lot. It will have a few different users so I want it to be user friendly. I have quotes from Meyer and Fisher dealers. Thanks for any and all input.

    Look into the Snoway. A 26 or 26R is an excellent match for that vehicle. easy on/easy off snoway was the first to have a completely removable system (lights, pump etc) back in the 70s.

    I would recommend a 7.5' HD or SD. The HD is a little more rugged and the Tundra will handle the extra weight fine. I have done quite a bit of plowing with a Tundra so, if you have any questions just ask.

    A Snow Dogg VMD75 would be sweet on a Tundra.

    I have both fisher and boss Fisher is by far the easiest plow for on/off hookup
    havent used the others so cant say.

    watch out for brand X is the best when they have NEVER used any other brand.

    I have a Snoway plow 22 on a GMC Sonoma ZR2 and I love it. it is light but is tough and has down pressure, easy to take off and on. For 1/2 tons, I feel the steel blades wear out the front ends prematurely for cost, the amount of weight and the wear that you have with plowing. I have 33 clients and they are homes with long driveways and not enough room for full size pick ups. This setup works great.

For 1/2 tons, I feel the steel blades wear out the front ends prematurely concerning the cost, the amount of weight and the wear that you have with plowing. The Snoway is the way to go for all 1/2 tons. You don't have to modify and add and thing for the suspension.

    Just remember, you get what you pay for. I'm not saying the most expensive is the best but if you buy a cheap priced plow you're more than likely getting a cheap plow. There's a reason snow dogg is cheap and fisher isn't.

    Take a look at Arctic plows. I just picked one up for my Tacoma, since it was clearly the most sturdy and well built unit that was compatible. Galvanized steel frame, steel or poly moldboard, and a common front hitch configuration for all the different configurations.

    If the snoway has down pressure, there's no question, use the Snoway.
