    there is the Daniels http://www.danielsplows.com/PullPlow.htm


    and there is this one http://www.snowmansnowplow.com/content/view/18/77/


    I'll likely get a Boss plow from a local dealer here in winnipeg For the front of the truck ('bout 3 grand) but I need to know if there are any dealers for Daniels, I actually think I prefer the daniels but I have no Idea of the prices. Do you know how much a daniels pull plow costs?

    Any recommendations? this is strictly for residential driveways, I haven't got a truck for it yet but I do have customers. 24 customers anyway and will triple that with a plow system.

    Is that $3,000 for a new plow? That is about 1/2 price compared to Toronto.

    Have you thought about buying a plow with down pressure? That is a real cheap price for the Boss. They only knock off $400 if you want to install it yourself. Two years ago I went to Chicago to pickup 3 plows, saved $8,000 Canadian.

    If I drove to the states it would cost me $8000 in gaspayup

    I got my heart set on a pull back this year, awesome things as long as they don't cost too much. someone sent me a PM a few months back (a canadian) and told me they cost $2800. Not sure if it was a daniels or not, I lost track of that PM though. I believe he also mention a dealer in N. Ontario or maybe he was from there.

    They are very rare around here. I would ask your Boss dealer if he could get you one. If not go on Ebay and have one shipped here. The dollar is pretty strong now and my plows came across duty free. I think they are easy to install.

    I have a 9' Arctic. They are good plows once you fix the Mickey Mouse wiring set up.

    I think thats good advise because those plow partner ones look cheap compared to the daniels.

    Artic weight is around 300#, Danials advertises their 8' at 350# and Snowman's 7' is #450. snowman's # is 888-766-6267. Good luck.

    I phoned Daniels and talked to a guy in chicago, they can ship it here.

    $2825 USA plus shipping. I'm going to bite in oct.
