    What do yall reccommend? We get very little snow but I do have several accounts that require snow removal. I am talking maybe using this plow 5 times a season, at best. Maybe none, lol. Would a 99 ford f350, dually,with a heavy dump bed, work? TWO WHEEL DRIVE? thats the real question. How often do you see 2x4's doing snow removal?

    we use them here in jersey all the time, and if you know what you are doing, we have no problem in 12inchs+ snow.

    I think you shouldnt have any problems with that as long as you plow with the storm. I have seen that done here and as long as there is a fair amount of weight over the rear axle you shouldnt have any problems. Get some agressive drive tires too, that will help. Good luck, Dave

    2wd dually is absolutely fine for even heavy plowing. You just need some really heavy ballast.
