    I like a two-stroke single stage thrower for lighter snow. It is the easiest to get in and out of the truck with my bad back.

    I agree with Grandview... :D

    By the way... Wouldn't a 9.6' plow be 9 feet 7.2 inches?

    So, .6 = 1/2?

    I thought .5 is a half.

    Really? So they have their own way of measuring them? Kinda like their own math... interesting.

    Now, lets say we weren't talking about snowplows, and we wanted to write nine and a half feet as a decimal. Would it be written 9.5' or 9.6 feet?

    Western Puts 9 1/2' so assuming that there is 12 inches in a food and half is 6 it would be .6 just going by what is says on the plow we can just call it 9 1/2 to make things better

    Well, I'm sure they put 9.6 on the plow because of the thing with their own math and all.

    I know a yard has 36 inches, so one half yard would be 18 inches. So, three and a half yards, written as a decimal, would be like... 3.18 yards? So I'm thinking?

    Or maybe they put 9' 6" on the plow. I think that's different than 9.6'.

    True it is 9' 6" that makes better sense Thinking about getting the wings as well but still debating if they are worth the money

    Yes it does. Thumbs Up


    I think you'll like the wings. The plow gets a lot more done with them on.

    Wow you have too much free time. Really. :dizzy:

    Also, to the OP, just get the biggest single stage Toro you can lift.
