MythBusters Seeking Huge Municipal Acute V-plow

Discussion in 'Commercial Snow Removal' started by MythBusters, Dec 11, 2008.

    Hello - We at MythBusters (science/reality show on the Discovery Channel) are looking to find the biggest, sharpest,most ACUTELY angled municipal sized V-plow for an upcoming shoot. It can be new or used. Can anyone recommend what they think would be correct V-plow to suit that description? I hope this is the right section of the forum to post this request. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you!

    if your looking new , i would call Monroe , located in WI... they build truck bodies and plows. I belive alot of the big Vee plows are custom made , and they would be the guys to do it. They sell to the alaska highway DPT


    i also heard that the state of minnesota lets go of alot of equiptment cheap from time to time

    I say the myth should be about a little competition. Unemployed looking for beer money average joe with no insurance and a bailing wire held together piece of crap truck vs legitimate business snow plow professional. Let them race to finish a lot and compare results. Best plowing technique, best over all job, most cost effective ( maybe make them salt as well), include slip and falls, and maybe even insurance claims for the damage, and last but not least biggest pile. I may be a bit bias here, but anyone want to take bets on who does the better job, and the least amount of damage?

    You'd be best off contacting a plow MFG. directly. IMO Good luck.

    Another suggestion would be for a V-plow that would go on a train they have some really impressive units for those too.

    I see Oshkosh's every once in a while in the local "heavy equipment & truck trader" magazine. Some running some not. That might be a good start in your area. You should be able to find something similar up near the Tahoe area.

    X2 I love it! Keep us updated on when the show about V plows is going to be airing.

    I have to agree with others that the old oshkosh V plows are some of the most impressive as far as the size goes.

    She's from San Fransisco so they're probably going to do something about how plows damage the environment and kill baby seals.

    Those people down there are nuts :dizzy: (no offense, Linda)
