    New guy here, looking for some advice...Let me preface my question with a little information. My office has a small lot, there are approx 6 parking spaces, and the 2 driveways i want to do are approx 25' x 16' ...and i am not looking to plow for a living or do any sort of commercial work. I have a 07 Hummer H2 SUT, Looking to put a plow on it, a real plow, not one of the toys on ebay that mounts on the front hitch. There is a local guy that has 2 in his snowplow fleet, both are the western Wideouts, which causes some serious squating on the H2. Does anyone have any recomendations on brand and size? I have been leaning towards a 7'6 BOSS Straight, but recently I found a guy who will sell me a 1 year old BOSS V 8'2" with the touch controls, and mount for 3 grand...The V is heavier then i wanted to go, but according the the BOSS site is 770#'s where as the WIdeOut is 955#...anyways what do you guys think? Thanks in advance.

    I would get an 8 1/2 ft strait blade. You don't need the added weight of a V or wideout for the job your doing. I think it will plow good as well. Good luck and post a pic of it once you set it up.

    Thanks for the reply's, I read through some of the other posts...I like the meyer since it has a mount, but I have heard nothing but bad things about them...is this true or just peoples opinions, I called one of the site sponsors CPW, and even the guy there said meyer changes things often so parts can be a pain.

    does the H2 use the 1500 or 2500 frame?

    It is a 3/4 Ton so I ASSUME its a 2500, from what I read it has 4000# axles in front.

    put a 7.6 western pro on it and be done. you dont need anything bigger for the lot you are doing, NO need for a V or a Expandable plow since you are only doing your work. The western is makes the most reliable pump out there. Take my advice and go with it.

    A guy has been on Boston Craiglist trying to sell set of Fisher Push plates for a H2.

    The H2 uses it's OWN frame, which is of a 3-piece construction. The front was initially based off of a 2500 frame, but heavily modified. The middle section is completely new, and rear section was originally based off of a 1500 frame that has been modified and strengthened for the GVWR.

    Just an update, I contacted LuckyLawnboy, he happened to have the mount he used on his hummer...so I made the 2 1/2 hour drive down to him and picked it up, so I am going with a boss 8' straight blade, I didn't want the extra weight of the V, and the 8 footer was only a few pounds more then the 7'6. I will post some pics as soon as its installed. I am having a local boss dealer do the install.

    The 7.5 Meyers worked great for me.

    Yep, its installed, will take some pics...on a side note it fell off today...I thought it was something i did, but apparently the hinge pins didn't have the cotter pin in them....so the whole a frame just fell off...I was really freaked out...i thought i did something wrong, rigged it with a couple screw drivers and drove carefully to the boss dealer and they got it all fixed up for me..I did take this one pic today.

    Do you know what the part number is for that mount? I am trying to put a BOSS on my Hummer and they tell me they don't have a mount. Any help is appreciated.

    It uses a standard chevy mount, but it needs to be modified...I happened to find a guy on here who had a hummer with a boss plow and sold the hummer. Maybe your dealer will fab it?

    Here is a pic with it on

    Thanks a lot - do you know what type of chevy mount you are referring to? I called my dealer and he said that if he could know what type of chevy mount it is that they could modify it to fit my H2.

    I appreciate your help.

    I was told it is was the same as the GM 2500 series trucks, Luckylawnboy would know best he is who i bought it from.
