    Gonna Buy a back blade. Wondering what opinions are??? Which is better? Daniels looks heavier also has wings, looks like less spillage. EZ-plow can push and pull, also has plug and plow feature. Also like the lights mounted on the box. Can't decide. please help

    daniels also has plug and plow... just gottta run harness first... daniels can push and pull, you can mount lights on a daniels...daniels is a little cheaper and much better built for commercial applications IMO

    go with the daniels

    Nope unless you consider the trucks suspension as a float which would only be a couple inches at best

    SnowMan is another option. More expensive than Daniels, but I think they are well worth it.

    Before Daniels went to the new style plows that have the motor and pump mounted above the plow the old style had those parts mounted in the trucks pickup box so I dont see why the new style could not be done the old way. you would just have to make longer hyd hoses

    My 98' pickup has the pump in the engine compartment, and my dump truck has it mounted under the dump box right next to the other hydraulic pump for the dump bed.

    I have an older daniels unit with the pump mounted in a tool box in the bed of my truck. Also its easy to add float to a daniels plow. the only thing you need is two new toggle switches.
