    It seems most of the trucks I see plows on are full size trucks. I was thinking of buying a older S 10 Blazer or something along that size. Will it make me any money or will I be sorry I bought it.

    it all depends on what you want to do with it. For residential drives it is great. For large parking lots not so great.
