    What are ur opinions for the best plow for a 2003 c4500 d max, to do the customers own parking lot. Is there a need for the mc 9 ft? Is a 9ft hd to light duty for that truck. He wants a painted 9ft. What do u guys think? I was hoping to talk him into stainless x. I was thinking that would be a happy medium and around the same price as an mc.Thank u :salute:

    9' or 10' MC would be best IMO.

    Have a 9ft MC on our 4x2 c4500 and love it. Could probably go bigger if its a big open lot but the 9 is good all around.

    He definitly wants to stick with a 9. There lot is not all that big. Sucks that the mc are slow. I have a nice 10 mc I am putting on a f 650 now. Thank u for the input.

    Why does fishers e match show a 8.6 extreme v for that truck and not even a 9 x? I could not really imagine an 8.6 v on this thing.

    4500 question

    I have a 2005 4500 with a 9.5V Plow on it. I have been noticing that the battery meeting goes down very lawn when moving plow. Did you have to upgrade you alternator? Or have you heard or seen any problems like this before.

    It has duel batteries right? It shouldn't drop down to much with duel batteries.

    i would go with a 9ft ss xblade if he just doing parking lots it's the best commercial plow.
