    Has anyone had any experiences with a Sno-Way? I am looking to put a 6'8"
    on my Chevy Colorado.....

    I am looking to take on some driveways and want a plow that can handle it. I was told the Fisher Homesteader wouldn't be able to handle the workload.

    Thanks.

    I've had my snoway since '97. Replace the main piston 2 years ago. It's an 8' blade on a K3500. I plow for a 12 truck crew - Mine is the only that has not broken down. I plow public streets, appartments, parking lots, driveways, etc. No Issues at all. The down pressure makes back dragging excellent too.

    I would see if you can at least do the 7.5 wide. It makes things easier and if you decide to plow more you will then be able to.

    Thanks...

    Hey ScottL,

    Thanks for the advice, I hear nothing but good things about the Sno-way. I hope the Colorado can handle it. I'm hoping to get a bigger truck in a couple of years if this works out.

    Before you book up a plow make sure you have a trans cooler and enough suspension on the front to handle the weight. You'll probably want to put some balist in the back bed to counter the plow weight.

    Have fun.
