    Z Plow Master,

    Sounds like one heck of a deal. Mine is a HD work truck package (wideside body, AC, Dual zone, chrome bumper) Snow plow prep package (Increased capacity springs, 145 Amp Alternator, skid plates, and roof light provisions) plus I have the 4 speed Auto Trans w/overdrive, AC and power door locks.

    We didn't get that much snow last winter here but what I did push, the truck handled real well and was well powered with the Vortec 6000, V8 SFI Gas Engine.

    My list price last fall was $29, 804 and that was before the plow package.

    Nice. How do you like that 575 on the back? I am going to the dealer on Wednesday to talk about a price.

    Young Pup,

    For what I have to salt it works great. It eats the salts pretty fast so you have to refill often. At about 30 it throws a pretty good pattern and doesn't put the salt down to heavy. I mount it buy myself (before any melt is loaded.) I have a wooden appliance cart/dolly that I bought at Sams Club that I have the spreader on so I can wheel it out of the garage.

    Thanks for the help. I will check out Sam's up here too. I was thinking along the same about it working out great for what I have. Just want to compare prices with the guy I normally deal with to another one that I already have. Two quotes so far one for 1295. installed the second is the better one at 1068. installed and I thought I would get a price from the guy I always deal with at another dealer.

    If it's possible could you show me a pic with the plow and the removable brackets off? I am in the process of buying a new GMC 2500HD and i was wondering what it looked like w/o the plow. The western ultramount was what i was considering because most of the mount comes off for offroad clearance!

    Thanks
    Adam

    PLM - 1,

    Here is my truck with everything off set up for the summer. My previous truck had a Meyer package, what a pain getting the plow on every time and then having to take the pump off in the summer. With the Western Ultra Mount all I have to do is pull one pin each for the receiver mounts and they drop off. Hooking the plow up takes one minute start to finish, the hardest part is hooking up the electrical connections :nod:

    That looks great! Thanks! The mounting system is a big deal to me. I want a mounting system that doesn't show too bad and one that gives me maximum approach angle. Thanks again, you reaffirmed my decision!

    Just a little tip. I would suggest you move your license plate out to the back of the spreader( right next to mini pro 575). I got pulled over for leaving mine there because it was not so noticeable.

    Nice rig !

    I love my Ultramount. On in 60 seconds, off in 15 seconds.

    A & M Snowplowing,

    Thanks for the tip on the License Plate. I only have the spreader on when I am plowing so most of the time the cops are busy working accidents to worry about an obstructed license plate.

    But since you got stopped (Local, County or State ??) where do you display your plate when you have your spreader mounted?

    Hey wgsshowe,

    Picked up my 575 today. Had the dealer install it and all that fun stuff. Pretty simple to take on and off. I had a four wheel dolley out in the garage and put it on that. I am going to cut a milk crate down to the exact height to be able to put on the dolley,slide it out onto the crate and then slide it right back in. Will work on that contraption sometime this weekend.
