    Do all plow manufactures have plows with down pressure? How much more does this cost and is it worth it? Looking for info here on what might be a good plow for my truck. Truck is a chev 2500 crew cab.

    I'm pretty sure snoway is the only one who has the down pressure thing in the bag. No others have it as far as I know.

    Mark is correct, Snoway is the only one with actual downpressure.

    And yes it's worth every penny as an upgrade when you need it. :nod:

    And yes it is VERY worthwhile to have. Makes backdragging ALOT easier.

    Only the smaller 22 series are available in only polycarbonate, all the other larger plows are available with poly, steel or stainless moldboards which are also alot less expensive to replace if damaged than a "traditional" style moldboard. And yes, the down pressure feature is well worth the money.

    And ironically, only the moldboard skin is "plastic"...

    ...just like your beloved ;) yellow colored, trip edged, poly skinned blades would be. Or any poly skinned plow for that matter. :rolleyes:

    Great...I see your back. 43 posts and most of them are to bash Sno-Way plows. Why don't you take your babbling and go play in a busy street.

    Give him a break, he's joking, he's pretending to be stupid drunk while pointing out the benefits of interchangeable moldboard material. I thought it was quite amusing.:cool:

    Some models are offered as polycarbonate only and some others have it available as an option. Don't trust anything that bakerc8 has to say about any plow on the market. I am convinced that he does not even know what the features and benefits are of the plow he runs, that is if he actually owns one. It doesn't appear reading his posts that he can spell let alone offer anyone on the board worth while advice as to what a good plow may be. JMO

    Pretty sure the most he can manage is a shovel.
