    was this on an old schwanz truck. I have a c5500 that was an Schwanz truck I had thought about putting a plow on it at some point. So my question is does a 2 wheel drive c5500 work ok as a plow truck. I would put a salter on the back for weight .

    It was on a dump truck with a tailgate spreader. 2 wheel drive works fine as long as you have weight in the back. normally i would plow with about 2 tons of salt in the back.
