Good Price for a Unimount?

Discussion in 'Commercial Snow Removal' started by PlowboyBlake, Sep 20, 2004.

  1. I have a buddy that works at a car dealership. They have a 2001 Ram 3500 Dually with a Unimount 8.5 Western on it. This thing is in good shape and probably hasnt hardly been used. I asked if I could buy the plow and setup for it for $1500 and I will take it off. They said $1800 and it's a deal. Is this thing worth that much? I am willing to be that the plow is at least a 2001 if not newer. I know I will have to get a new mount for my 2000 F-250 Diesel S/B 4x4, but I could probably make the wiring work. Is this a good deal or not? Please let me know guys.

    Thanks a lot.

    A new 7.5' ultra-mount pro plow runs around $3790.00 installed in my part of the country. I would think that a new 8.5' would be in the neighborhood of $4200.00 installed. (Not counting labor) say you give $1800.00 for plow, you have to buy a used mount $200.00, maybe a wiring harness $175.00, Miscellaneous $100.00 bolts-nuts-wire connectors, that puts you in business for around $2275.00 A savings of about $1925.00. Now this all assume that you are comfortable doing the installation. If you are not, then your local dealer will probably do it for around $400.00 - $500.00. Still a huge savings over buying new. Do not forget that you will have a used mount for sale and a wiring harness!! Uni-mounts are getting hard to find since they came out with ultras. :waving: BOAST
