    Im in the lawn care industry and was looking for a supplement for the winter and thought plowing would be a good idea.

    I have been working with a guy for 10 years now helping him plow snow in the winter so I do know how to use one. I have used Fisher, Meyer and Hiniker.

    My question is :

    I have a 97 F-250 Heavy Duty with an extended cab. Im try to find out what plow would be the best to put on there. Ill be doing mainly residential with a couple small commercial lots. Nothing major.

    I was also wondering if there is anything I should do to the front end to reinforce it.

    Thanks guys!

    Welcome to plowsite. Keep in mind that this site is slowing down very fast for the season so questions might not be answered as quick. ;)

    As far as your truck goes, an 8ft. plow would be just fine. You could either add another spring to the front of your truck or add a set of timbrens. Either choice will help your suspension. :nod:

    I wonder how effective they are?


    I talked to my local Hiniker dealer today and he told me my F250 HD wouldnt need any work to be done on it for an 8 foot plow.

    Quoted me a price of 4100 installed. Doesnt seem to bad.
