    Hi Guy
    I was just wondering if there are maney guys out there plowing snow with Ford 4x4 dually pickups? I was just wondering what some adbvantge with a dually are and some disadvantges. I know they will plow snow, but i don't have much expeience with a dually truck and was just wondering. I just looked at a 1992 Ford F-350 Dually reg cab,with 460 big block, and manual trans with a steel flat bed, with a Western 81/2 foot plow. Just wondering how that dually truck would push snow compared to a normal truck. Thank You:salute:

    I have very rarely ever needed 4wheel drive either.

    However, I don't suggest any plow under 9'. Wheel to wheel you are 8 ft wide on the back. with an 8'6" plow when angled you will be driving in the snow with your rear wheels.
