    Thanx guys-

    I had hoped to find something used. Unfortunately I found very little used that was close to what was looking for. What I did find was not much less than what was new, plus I have a warranty, a very slick quick connect/ disconnect and a remote controlled plow. Really neat engineering. I am looking into whether or not I can install the Sno Way 4-sight lighting hookup with my plow. Also am wondering if I should purchase a bigger more powerful battery to help run the lights and hydraulics...

    I also intend to install some fog lights under the rear bumper so (at night) when I go in reverse I can see whats behind me... I thought that was a good idea.

    The dealer/ installer took his time and "trained' me on taking the unit on and off.

    Good luck!

    All of what you mentioned I have personally read or been involved with on this site so I know the info is there. Do a search and you will find your info.

    Sure you can add 4 sight:nod: If you can not find them local we stock them ($79.00 plus shipping)

    Before adding an extra battery make sure your getting all you can out of the set up you have. Considering up grading the feed wire from alternator to battery and if you do replace the battery remember AMP HOURS are more important then cold cranking amps.

    The back-up lights are a good idea, but under the bumper they will get torn off the first time you back into a snowbank or pile of snow.
    Welcome to PS and to Sno-Way.

    I Will try to get some pics asap.

    Fall is just a kick arse busy time of the year for me. Leaves to clear, firewood to split and sell and still grass to mow. I'm running constantly. I will get some pics though.

    Yeah- I want to mount the lights somewhere where they won't get beat to hell. I have a friend who back into something (hard and stationary) while plowing. Just toasted his back end. I can get a set of the little fog lamps through harbor freight for <20$. I figured I may put some on the back of my trailer too for backing up at night.

    Welcome to PS!! You'll like the versatility of your 26. As for lights under the bumper, I have a set that I found at AutoZone (only about 1.5" tall) mounted in the space between the top of my hitch and bottom of the bumper. If they get smashed up there I've got bigger issues to worry about!!lol

    Here are a couple pics. I intend to use the black and white for a business card. I have purchased a strobe for the top and have upgraded the battery. I intend to purchase the foresight system too.

    First day of plowing went just fine. I took things slow and have established a simple motto: Take it slow and dont go where you wont fit! If in doubt - use the snow blower.

    Good Motto. The plow looks great. How do you like the down pressure on that thing. Have a good season.

    I really like the DP.This snow had a layer of slushy ice that it did really well on. It did real well on back dragging the residentials too. I also like the quick connect/ disconnect very much. The system is very user friendly and requires very low learning curve- Great for idiots like me!

    Prostk- thanks- last year I did a ^&*load of removal with a Kubota snowblower. Not getting out is nice. Alas though I have a lot of residentials sidewalks that require getting out....
