    Does anyone currently have a Blizzard Plow, Western, Fisher, etc. mounted on an Explorer/Mountainer? I have a S..bear and need to upgrade...getting tired of constantly changing anlges. I'm getting mixed reviews on the Homesteader and Suburbanite.

    I'm new to the business and have a few residentials and a small parking lot.

    I have a homesteader mounted on my 2002 explorer, it is a great little plow. I have about 300 hours of use on it and I have never had any problems problems with it.

    I recently installed a Blizzard 6'8" on a Nissan Frontier and to date he is a happy camper. Should serve well on yours then.

    I have the 680 Blizzard plow mounted on a 2000 Chevy Blazer. Its a very nice plow little plow. I would go with the joy stick instead of the touch pad. I find it very hard to operate without having to look down at the pad.

    Does the Eplorer hold up with the beating of plowing? My brother got an explorer and is thinking about getting a plow on it. But he is worried that it is an explorer and will not be able to handle it.

    Does anyone have a an older Western, Fisher, Meyers plow mounted on a 95 & up explorer? I'm trying to figure out if I can get mounts for it or if I need to fab some if i grab a used plow.

    the explorer is doing fine, the plow weighs less then 300 pounds so there isn't much weight to beat up the explorer, it also trips forward so any pressure strong enough to cause damage to the vehicle trips the plow instead of jarring the vehicle.

    How is the plow still holding up?? I am looking at the Suburbanite for my 2002 Sport Trac, and wondering if it is worth it???

    Thank you,

    I didn't think an Exploder could hold up with the beating of everday driving!

    This was last years property that i plowed as a sub contractor, and yes the explorer did quite a bit at this one.LOL never had a problem. Believe it or not this was our first Snowfall of the season and that was NOV 23. If you have any questions let me know.
