    I will begin plowing next year. I can have about 30 accounts set up by September and want to know what plow to buy.

    I have a 2002 Chevy 1/2 Ton with a 5.3 and a plow prep pkg.

    Looking for brands here.

    Thanks.

    Make your decesion based on whos close to you. You shouldn't leave the question open like that because someone with a blizzard will come in and say blizzard is the best "go wide" yada yada yada etc. Give us the names of brands local companies carry. Dealer support is big. I have a fisher right now. My fisher dealer is 10 min. up the road from me. I had a Sno-way and that dealer was 45 min away. You tell me which was and will be easier to get service or support from in the middle of a storm?

    Second the advice to make your decision based on dealer support. You've got a 1/2 ton, so you can't put a real heavy plow on it. Are you doing driveways, lots, both? I'd set yourself up with a second battery for sure. And you may want to consider additional front end support even with the plow prep.

    Look at a SnoWay for that truck or perhaps the new little Blizzard available later this year.

    I have a 99 chevy 1/2 ton and it handles my Boss 7'6" super duty just fine. I just had to add a set of timbrens to the front. Good luck. Dealer support should weight a lot on your decision. Breck

    I agree, You need a plow that has parts readly available in your area. I prefer Snoway because i like the downpresure and such. But if you get something where parts have to be oredered all the time you could lose money and time.
