    I have the opportunity to buy a F350 with a western Wideout plow at a great price! my question is... is this a smart purchase with the majority of my account being Residential driveways and smaller parking lots? 95% of my drives are straight pushes, no turns! your help will be greatly apperciated!

    If its a good price then go for it the plow is nice for driveways to and if you get some bigger properties you can take them on knowing that you have a plow that will handle it!

    If the price is right and the equipment is in good shape go for it. Now you have a tool that makes you valuable and more efficient, and you don't have to worry that you didn't bring enough plow.

    Well I would buy it if I were you. I just bought a wideout. Actually I am picking it up tomorrow! I am super excited, because I will be more effecient. As far as driveways, I wouldn't think twice. You can retract it to 8' if you need to. Plus they are supposed to be nice for backdragging, being real heavy and all.
