    I posted in the Western section but didn't get many (only 1) responses so I will try here. What can anyone tell me about AirFlo plows.... I have 4 trucks and added a 5th this week and I am looking for a plow. My local place has what I think is a good deal on AirFlo but I don't know much about the plow itself. The AirFlo web site is sparse at best.
    They look good, similar to a Western in some ways, and they seem to be ruggedly built. Anyone have one or know someone who has used them.

    Thanks
    Kellie

    They look like they're built well but I don't know anyone who has run one.

    i was looking at one this week at a local dealer. Never seen one in person until friday. They look like they are well built and I am sure you can get them at a good price. Sorry I did not help very much.

    Well thanks everyone. I guess I still have time before I have to make up my mind. I will hold on a few more days and see if there are any negetive comments. He has them in stock so shouldent take to long to install if I decide to go with it.
    Please keep me in mind guys if you hear any thing about them, good or bad.

    Supposedly a good plow that is very similar to Western/Fisher. Even looks like the same hydraulics and moldboards. They are fairly cheap- under $3000

    My dealer here wants $4100.00 to install it on a 09 F250 SD. That sounds good as a Western would be around $4800.00
    I am in the near north Chicago Burbs northernplowman. In Morton Grove

    Just wanted to say I decided to get the AirFlo plow on my new truck. It looks great. I did noticed it sits closer to the truck then my Westerns, so you cannot open the hood with the plow installed. It looks as though any truck with the hood attached to the grill will have this problem but, driving this truck and the same type of truck with the Western the weight being further back, make the truck handle better. I think its going to work well but will know better when it snows. I will keep you all informed.

    Just want to let everyone to know. Pinkplowgirl is our client and I AM NOT trying to pull a fast one. (she answered her post logged in under my name and did not realize what she was doing) She is picking up her truck this morning and using our computer.
    Guess I will make sure I log off when I let anyone else use my computer again.
    Sorry sorry everyone.
