    We just started carrying Snowdogg. My intentions are to be a fill in when I can't sell a Boss for specific plow applications. After researching them and taking delivery of the MD 6'8 & 7'6" I have been really impressed.....especially for the price! I have alot of expierience in plows and think theses will be a hell of a good product. Any feedback good or bad wouldbe appreciated.jlcustomfab@suscom-maine.net

    I just checked one out the other day. They seem decent, but they have a bulldog screw jack......that seemed kinda cheesy, but other than that it seemed good.

    Just had a Snowdogg MD75 installed on my 2007 chevy 1500 Crew Cab with the v8 motor with heavy duty towing package. The frame mount section has three bolt section not being used. Distance from ground is 7.5 inches with blade in float. 5.5 inches with blade raised. Any suggestions for height on this set up along with trimming the bottom plates. What would be the minimum chain setting at full height blade is 7.5 inches from ground.

    1500's are tough. They sag a lot, and have a fair bit of frame height variation. We've recommended to dealers that any 1/2T trucks may require timbrens, torsion bar keys, or leveling kits. We leave this to the dealers as most competent plow installers have a favorite brand or method.

    We've also shortened some of our side plates - we found that dealers were trimming side plates pretty regularly.

    I just put a 7.5 md on a 2007 dodge 1500. i got timbrens in front and back. I am concerned with the side plate also. The guys at the shop that installed it told me that "I" could trim off the bottom 1.5". I thought they would have done it for me. I'll get some pics tomorrow, if it doesnt snow to much. other than that it seems to be a very good little plow. With the timbrens on my Dodge, the front only dips 1/2 inch when the plow is raised.

    I also bought the MD-75 this season, my first. Put it on a 2000 1500, n MAN DOES IT SAGG!

    It is very quick all around, n light, but Im tired of bottoming out already. In the Cleveland area.....anybody know where I can get a set of Timbrens installed out here? Cuz I need em!

    Jack is cheesy, but workable. But the price point is what made my choice.

    Snowdogg VX 8'6"

    This snowdogg V is the best on the market hands down. I have the 4th one in the US sold by the only dealer selling the V. Bought from Hyde Equipment in Petoskey MI. Will plow circles around a Boss. The lift cylinder is almost twice as big as the Western Pro Plus lift.
    All I can say is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

    Front Leveling

    There is no reason to pay $240.00 for Timbrens when Snowdogg makes there own levelers for $140.00 I had a set installed from the dealer I bought my plow from. Any one can install these in your yard in about 30 mins or less if you can turn a wrench no joke.

    Wow, Thanks!

    Had no idea about the levelers from Buyers....wish they had told me that! I was fortunate enough to have the Buyers engineers look over my system since they're only a couple miles from my dealer.....either way...I'm calling them this morning!

    Thnks again Rhino

    The MD only weighs 400# and the HD weighs 680#. That's a big difference on a 1500.

    I have had some issues with mounting it as well. I know there are a few others on here that have had the same issues as I. otherwise, its a great plow and I have no complaints. Great support and feedback from my dealer as well.
