    FWIW I live 20 minutes away from the plant, and would'nt even consider them for commercial plowing. IMO they are too light for commercial applications.

    I bet to differ. But maybe in not big enough to be considered commercial? but ill let you decide. I have 35 accounts, with the route taking anywhere from 8-12 hours. The plow has been great, no defects other than the normal connection problem, but that is solved so its no big deal. The plow is a 1999, and still has the original paint, and hasnt even started to rust yet. It has been used commercially for the past 2 years, one of the years being from a fellow plowsite owner, and one year from me.

    Thus said, I have never used another brand, only curtis, next plow will be western or boss though, only for dealer service.

    I beg to differ. All I will operate is BOSS, but if it wasnt them, it would be Curtis. My friend has a 7'6" on his 1500 and that thing is built like a damn rock. Nice paint, design, mounting ease, etc. Curtis makes awesome plows that are very capable of "Commerical" use. Just my 0.02.:nod:

    Curtis plow plug connection

    I use a curtis plow and have been having problems with the plug in connection. I think its a poor design where they mounted the plug so low on the frame. Does anyone out there have a solution to the problem. I have been using a small bungee cord to hold it in place. Any suggestions? Thanks Scott:confused:

    What I did was spread some of the male pins open a little. Use di-electric grease. And when you plug it in, loop the wires over the "bar" part so it makes better contact. I'll take a pic of that tomorrow if you dont understand what im saying.
