    I don't both can be added because of space so on a regular 3/4 ton pickup would you add a tailgate spreader to sand and salt or a back drager like a Daniels. I will be doing commercial and residential, I think the spreader is better because it will benefit me more with making more money to sand and salt. Does anyone know anyone who has both? Pictures?
    Thanks in advance

    Snowman has a back drag plow that you also can use a small spreader with. Back drag will be a great asset and get you more money on driveways because you will do a better job. Picture at Snowman snowplows.

    Found the picture

    probably an expensive set up to buy but looks like it would be great to get towards the ultimate plow vechicle.

    Price wise they are about the same as a lower priced front plow. But this allows you to do some sites where you need a bobcat to clear doors and loading docks etc. It is more cost efficient than adding a bobcat and driver. Don't follow. LEAD

    Personally I would choose a spreader over a back plow. Never saw myself using a back plow enough to justify the cost of buying one.

    A back plow will open new markets to you. Think outside the circle.
    Proven fact. Customers seek out contractors that have the right equipment. Create the market for this product. Lead. Don't follow.
