    Do these have enough power to push snow with a 7.5' plow?

    had a 2005 shortbed with a manual V6. Had a meyers 7.5 plastic plow. Seemed to have enough torque to do a couple of driveways which is all I plow, but the clutch didn't like it at all. Ended up getting a 2500HD and putting a Snoway on it which is a great plow.

    the torque is only like 20 or 40 foot pounds less then the 4.8L V-8... I plowed for 4 years commerically with my last 4.3L... worked great but wears them out quick... It pushes a 8' with no problem...
