Has Anyone Plowed With A Homesteader ?

    Hi all,

    I am new to the site, and I appologize if I am repeating a thread, I can not find a way to search old ones.

    Anyway, my question. I have a 2004 Nissan Titan SE Crew Cab. I have been looking fo a personal / light duty plow for it. I only plow about 3-5 driveways per storm. I live in the CT area, so its not like we get tons of snow. I used to have a 7 1/2 foot Meyer ST Light Duty on my old Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab, that more than did what I needed.

    So anyway, I have only been able to find a Homesteader and the suburbinite being advertised to fit on my new truck. I know the truck is only a 1/2 ton, but I think it should do it. What I want to know is wether or not either of those plows work well. I have never had a poly moldboard, and the downforce instead of weight is it better or worse? Do they clear decently? I was also concerned about the low height of the moldboard. I was actually thinking about trading in the truck and getting a Ford F250 SD XLT to solve this problem, but that is a-lot of money that I will loose. So do you guys think I could get 3-4 seasons out of one on the Titan?

    Thanks any info you can offer would be greatly appriciated.

    Thanks again,
    -Dave
     
  2. I would say the Homesteader would be perfect for your situation. If your only doing 3-4 and its more for personal use than it should hold up for alot longer than 4 years. The short moldboard should not be a problem either, if you were plowing a large parking lot I would say it would. Those plow are made very well and durable. I think you would be very happy with the Homesteader. :redbounce

    I'd say you'd be happy with the homesteader but if your looking for a bigger plow or just other options both snoway for sure and Blizzard I believe will put a plow on your truck. Of course that if your at all looking for a more regular use plow. But whatever you do enjoy! :salute:

    Blizzard makes a 760LT for your truck. Have a look at them.
