Just Earned All My Money Back

    Snow can never be counted on here so when I bought my plow I was not sure if I would make enough to cover what I spent for the plow this year. Glad I earned enough to pay back the money I spent for a plow in the first season.

    People that said plows shorter then 7.5 and your tires will be riding on the snow. Well all as I can say to that, is they were right.

    Makes me sort of wish I had bought the Snow Dogg 7.5 or the Suburbanite 7'4". Though I have some jobs that are really tight and the 6"8" Meyer made it easy to maneuver. Who knows for sure if the Snow Dogg would of still been maneuverable enough. And the salesman said the Suburbanite would not stand up to commercial work.

    Just that I wish the plow was 2" longer on each side. Total 7' length.

    Any way I hope I can afford to put on a pull plow for next year. Maybe a Daniels.

    I am just the opposite of you. My first setup 37 years ago was a 6 foot Meyers on a 1979 Jeep CJ7. I now have a 2015 F350 with an 8 foot Western. This Ford setup is too big for the Residential Work that I do. I have 3 small Commercial accounts that a 6 foot plow would handle

    I don't see Meyer brand wings. But pro wings are somewhat popular. I'm sure you'll get a 2nd opinion soon

    I also have Meyer - a 6.5 BTW on a 00 TJ. Get the rite work n your fine. I plow commercial - covienence stores, small condos. In the Blizz I sent a bill in for 34 hrs. N you don't want wings if you have a jeep or small truck! Plow is small for a reason. These vehicles aren't made to push that much snow at once. Steady as she goes. Just keep it moving n adding $$ to that bank acct! Continued Good luck!

    ^ are you serious, Clark?...

    op, you can find a set of "wings"
    now, the plow will weight as much as the 7.5 would have or more.


    live and learn, good luck.

    7' is a really good size for a lot of vehicles, but a lot of plow makers skip that size and jump from 6'8" to 7'6". Older vehicles from around 1990 are good with the 6'8", but vehicles made now tend to be just enough wider than they were back then that you need that extra 4 inches to make it clear. Thing is, all the way to 7'6" can be just a little bit too much, especially when you're dealing with tight spaces or deep snow. With deep snow, extra width can make it a lot harder to break through, so you need to minimize the extension.

    For Meyer, you can still get the old 7' steel moldboard n A frame from storksauto.com. Theyre in Reading, PA. Ask for Jeen. Tell him Tim from NJ sent ya!

    What vehicles from around 1990 are good with a 6'8" plow and what has made the wider since then?
