    Got to use my 12ft Ebling for the first time today.

    Nothing much, Dryer fluff, started plowing @ 12AM, Snow kept falling all day, Ended up with about 6 or so inches.

    After about 2 hours (My learning period) I pretty much stopped using my Boss, and only drug the snow around. Oly used my plow on tight corners and stacking.

    I did everything from a few condo drives, to street, to small parking lots, to big parking lots. The Ebling did not disappoint!!!!!!. This thing does everything I thought it would do and more.

    If you haven't ever tried, or or on the fence, or just don't believe in what you can accomplish with one of these. You need too..


    They are the real deal!!!!!!!

    Thanks JD, Mark and the folks at Ebling.

    I could probably put a dent in the market here with one of those! Any pics?

    What do those usually run for cash and carry?

    What do these do that make them so much better than a good standard plow? I'm asking the question because I'm interested, not because I have an unfounded opinion. My big contract is a really large movie theatre, and am looking for options to make things a little more efficient.

    The Ebling Pull Plows are the beasts in the rear mounted plow market. The benefits of them is that you're able to take a 3/4 ton truck that could handle a 9' plow at most and give it the ablility to pull up to 16' of plow. You're able to use down pressure to get through hard pack and then turn it into a box blade to carry snow around corners without massive loss when turning

    IF he has that truck setup correctly that pull plow should be ok for the truck with little abuse if he's carefull

    I really don't care if I tear up my truck, I can always buy another one.

    Remember this, My equipment is mine, Not yours. I can and will do with MY tools what I want.

    I need to push/pull a 1/4 mile, then stack. Will it pull better than a blade/box will push?

    I heard that. They make new trucks everyday eh, Peterbilt?payup
    I will beat a truck to death, too. Always buy a new one.

    The Ebling on the back actually serves as ballast and will help the truck balance the weight of the plow up front.
    The advantage of a rear plow is that it is easier to pull a load rather than push it. Check your trucks towing capacity and imagine if that were a load of snow in a pull plow, it is no different than towing a trailer.

    I've 'towed' 64000 pounds of sled at a couple of truck pulls and it didn't bother my truck at all. My truck would rather pull anything than push it around.

    That and the fact that an Ebling is 12 to 18 feet wide.:cool:

    LOL, didnt bother it at all, so whats that mean, you took the sled home with you?

    I find my truck doesnt care what its doing, it pushes just as good as it pulls... I think the main differance here is a truck can move that snow 1/4 mile pulling it opposed to a tractor or a piece of equipment pushing a pusher up front...

    Uh oh, the secret is out.

    Glad you're happy with it. I'm working on replacing my SideWing with a back blade, they are just so much more efficient.

    I might be picking up a few gas station accounts, as well as a large car wash, and all these pictures and talk of Eblings are making me seriously consider it.
