    While browsing youtube yesterday I ran across this... Needless to say I was a little surprised. He doesn't do a great job but the truck seems to handle the snow well. I knew these trucks could plow and im not sure it really was 30 inches but still....

    He's a member here...and that also proves Tundras can hold a plow. Would I have one? Hell no. But thats an 850 pound plow on a half ton truck and its not struggling.

    After reading the comments I guess its just a summer home, some people write some stupid stuff on youtube! and I agree it does really well

    im impressed too! so yes it does handle well now but im wondering in the long run how would that do? i would be a little worried about those parts wearing out too fast and especially with the axle i dont know for sure but i have heard they are weak axles. i would drive a tundra to plow with if i knew there parts were made to handle that

    That storm was hell no matter where you were. Plus, in that storm, the 3/4 ton pickup got outplowed by the half ton pickup. I still haven't figured out a plausible reason as to how.

    I'm planning on putting an 8' Fisher HD Minute Mount 2 on my Tundra. I have no doubt in my mind it will hand an 8' plow fine. I'm also tossing around the idea of buying a 7.5' Snow Dogg VMD with wings.

    That's my buddy Jon. Truck handles the plow great. It's a mm1 too which people said wouldn't work!

    Go V! I can't wait to use mine. I bought mine just for that one in every 10 year storm that dumps 30 inches. I watched the straight blades struggle just opening up driveways last time, I decided I wouldn't be one of them

    What year is his truck? They actually made those mounts for his truck?

    2007. He had to switch the plow over to 3 plug. Truck side was brand new.

    Oh yeah I forgot you can mount the mm1 into the mm2 mount right?

    The funny part is, there is no MM1 vs MM2 truck side mount. Just wiring. The pushplates never really changed.

    I would love to go with a V but, I'm not sure if I want to spend the extra money when I only plow a few driveways.

    On my Chevy I had "MM1 push plates" and they worked fine with my MM2 plow. I heard the MM2 push plates are flared out a little wider so the plow can be off to the side a little more and the push plates will guide it in.

    Thats not in the pushplate, its in the plow itself.

    While I havnt plowed with my new V yet... I only am do driveways right now and helping to cleanup a condo complex for another guy but it's a straight blade and then some, to me it was worth the extra expense to be able to be a straight blade or any variation. Your call, but I would. I can't count how many guys I have talked to that once they switched they will me be go back, and aren't sure how they plowed without it for so long. I havnt used mine yet, hoping I praise it like others

    I thought it was impressive at the 1:42 mark, the plow angled to the right the way it did
