    NICE WELCOME, MODERATOR!

    Geez, it was the guys' 1st post, nice job building site membership and encouraging value-added posts!








    Pathmaker: Welcome to the site!
    Just curious, what is 350 lb. on a Curtis? Those plows are beefy, certainly they weigh more than that?

    I don't see any problem in how 75 told the new member about the caps. Maybe it is not in the guidelines on this site (should be) I know that other sites list it as something to avoid. Either way he is a mderator and also a member. I would have told him the same thing if I had seen the post before 75.

    We have a lot of members here and it is important that we follow guidelined to keep the site enjoyable. I don't think 75 meant any offense. He was just giving advice. That is what the site is for.

    I have a Curtis, and nothing on it weighs 350 lbs. unless it's the truck driver.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Curtis, but specs on it are :

    7 1/2 Poly - 695 lbs
    7 1/2 - 750 Lbs
    8' - 765 lbs
    9' - 795 lbs.

    www.curtisplow.com , Truck Snow Plows, View Blade Specifications Here:

    Model 1SP7, Blade Width - 7', Mold Board gauge - 3/16" poly UHMV, Approximate Weight - 460 lbs.

    A little more than 350 lbs, but still a nice lightweight unit. Weight-wise, it's similar to the Sno-Way Lexan units, but has a taller moldboard (24" vs 18" on the Sno-Way) Just wondering, what make/model truck are you running it on?

    Pathmaker this is not the way to make friends around here. Keep mouthing or keyboarding off, and you will get no ones attention.

    make - model

    hey rob

    Im pushing the plow with a 1997 F-150 4x4 exteded cab with a 4.6 ltr
    good on gas and being i have no up front leaf springs the poly plow really takes it easy on my truck and thats plenty of power
    i own a video store and im putting flyers in my customers movies so they have no choice but to take them home
    so mainly im just doing driveways

    Yes, keeping the weight of the plow down is a good idea - especially with the TTB Fords.

    Did you go with the 7' blade to help keep the weight down, or to make it a bit easier manouvering in & around driveways?
