    Hello..

    Anybody who can help me out on this I would really appreciate it. I have a chance at buying a curtis sno pro 3000 plow it's around 7 to 10 years old, 7'6"length, two wire connection and everything looks to be in decent shape. Guys asking 1000.00 for it which I think is to high. Is it worth buying the mount for my f-250, the controller, wiring harness and solenoid and putting this all together or should I just buy something new? I would have around 1500.00 in new parts plus what I can get the plow for. Thanks everybody!

    The Curtis is a great plow, heavy duty and they are probably the easiest to get on and off the truck. $2500 for a working plow is a pretty good deal as a new one will set you back at least twice as much. I guess it depends on what your using it for....

    What kind of dealers do you have in your area? Do you have a Curtis dealer close by? That might be the deciding factor

    I agree, I think it's a pretty good deal after doing some research. The plow will be used for family , friends and a few good neighbors, although I'm sure I could easily recoup my money the way this winter is starting around here. Thanks for your reply i appreciate it!

    That's sort of a problem because there is none, at least I can't find them. I've googled curtis dealers in my area and quite a few come up but when I call them, they don't supply any parts. Ebay has everything I need for about 1400 bucks or I've called curtis and can get them but ebay is cheaper by a few hundred bucks. It would be nice if there was a dealer around. Thanks for your reply.

    For parts call King GM in CT...(Google for the contact info) they have a huge inventory of parts and will ship same day anywhere...

    Update: I went ahead an bought the plow and with a little negotiation I ended up paying 450.00 for it and I couldn't believe it. I ordered all the parts from King GM for the plow that I needed and that was 1385.00 delivered UPS. Thanks bbarer for the heads up on King GM..I blew them off because I thought they were just a car dealer, even though I seen them on Ebay, little did I know, and they did a package deal as well so I saved a little dough...real nice people too. Just waiting on the parts now an hopefully I'll be plowing next week. I appreciate everybody's help here! Thanks a lot!

    Great! Let me know if you need any help getting it together as I just pretty much did the same thing. Bought an older Curtis and put it on my 2012 F250. Turned out to be pretty easy and straight forward...Be prepared to drill a couple of 5/8" holes in the frame though for the mount! Oh and have fun getting to the driver side headlight plug to hook in the headlight adapters!
