    Its a clear 2 y/o sno-way that mainly sat. He said he paid $2500. I can get it for a grand. Looking to put on my 2012 F150. Good deal? Good plow? I've olny plowed with reg plow b4 so, I don't know if these clear are reiliable. Only a couple of driveways plowed by myself. Input, appreciated.

    If it is a 26 series you will be fine. That is the only plow supported for your vehicle.

    There should be a serial number on the aframe that starts with 26 than either a D or a G

    Go for it! If it's in good shape thats a great price. My first plow was a snoway 26 clear poly. I too was very skeptical at first but decided to try it. I can tell you it will surprise you. I hit a deer going approximately 50 with that plow on. Thought for sure it would be junk. The plow didn't even show a mark other than some hair stuck to it. If it has down pressure you will be very happy with it.

    Also you can change the skins (moldboards) on them for little money. Not sure the choice's now but I do know you can get steel.

    That could be a great buy. You could always resell it later.

    If it is a 26 you would have to buy a mount for it.
    Does the mounting hardware, subframe and harnesses come with it?
    If he bought it for $2500 two years ago I HIGHLY doubt he bought it new so it could be an older plow.
    If it is a 26 series with all the harnesses a grand is a great price if it is a 26 series without harnesses and grand is a good price.
    If it is anything but a 26 series walk away regardless of the price or look for a new vehicle to install it on.
