    SnoWay makes those Lobo V plows. So far as I have heard, they are good plows.

    Alan has a couple of them, and has no major complaints. Oh, he's in Vermont too ;)

    Very nice looking plow. Don't see too many of those plows here in CT just a few of the lighter duty straight blades on smaller pickups. Looks to be a well built durable Vee plow setup. Gotta love the downpressure system too :)

    The Lobo is a decent plow. They have a somewhat archaic control system, independant control of each wing, I'd like something like Fisher and/or Western has where the wings can be programmed to move together on one button. Like Chuck said, we've got two of them and nothing major has gone wrong. I think I'll keep an eye on that one and see what it goes for. If I could buy it right it might be worth picking up a truck to put behind it. The guy claims he had it on a 1500 and it didn't squat, somehow I doubt that, ours ride on 8600 lb GVW rigs and they both bow pretty good under the weight.

    It dont look like a bad plow. I have seen the lobo before and it looked like it plows just as good as any other plow. My friend has a snoway snowplow for his dodge and he likes it.:)

    Alan - I was just wondering if you've seen any of the structural or weld quality problems on the Snoway Lobo's.I know the straight blades were terrible (all our's were,but have been beefed up).
