    Its a ford 350 dually with plow western i think its a 8 or 9 ft.

    As far as doing drives it seems kinda big and i didnt like the visibility but i did not take down the sides when test driving it.

    Its seems good for a big company but it will be my only and base truck. It seems like the right truck for doing more than one thing.

    What would be your opinion on it.

    Any input or advice is apprecieated.

    Without the sides there shouldn't be any problems with visibility. Maybe not the best for driveways but would be a great commercial truck.

    Would be great on bigger lots. Not so good for driveways.

    I plow with a dually, they work great as long as you are doing commercial lots, res drives suck and that 9' might be to wide for older driveways.
