    I'd like to buy a pull plow, Ive been looking at the daniels or snowman pull plow and am torn. Dealer support in my area sucks for both so thats a lost cause choosing by that, 1 dealer has poor service, the other has a 40% mark up on all there parts and service. Im leaning towards the daniels because I trust the name and the setup looks strong. Any one have any experience/ bad experience with these brands?

    My vote is for Snowman, I have two. I have a few friends with Daniels, they are a cheaper alternative. Eblings are awesome if you can justify the cost.

    I have a Daniels and love it best money spent. I can not speak about the others. I purchased my factory direct because I have no dealer locally and for 2 years now now a single problem

    i own a 8" snowman pull plow . I bought the one that is spreader compatible.

    I bought the snowman because it had the trip action.

    Ebling is probably better but alittle bit more than what i paid for the snowman.

    The sales/parts people have been very nice and very helpful. I called multiple times just asking questions and they were very nice and answered my questions with no problems.

    Hope this helps. Thumbs Up
