    I have a western 7.5 pro plus plow on my 1995 f250. I have 4 commercial accounts that take 30-45 minutes plus 15 residential accounts. Will this plow do ok back dragging the residentials? I am looking to speed things up and I figure the scoop would save at least 10-15 min on commercials. Just can't loose res. because they pay well.

    Green, trust me on this one. You will absolutely be changing your pants when you see how much snow the scoop contains and how quick it is. Plus, you can stack the snow 2 feet higher. Our last snow fall (about 6 in.) I was out pushing a 9.2 boss v-plow with an 8ft. scoop by at least 25% faster.
    Because of the 20 degree fixed angles, which is what makes this plow contain the snow much much better, you can't get as close to a curb like you can with a straight blade, but in alot of cases you can run the curb first. It still back drags as good as any other plow out there, other than the HINIKER
    C-Plow, which i have one of those with the side cutters on, and that baby moves alot of snow also.
    not as much as the scoop though.......nothing does except loader box blades. Good Luck with your choice.

    The Hiniker Scoop plow will work excellent for plowing, back dragging is a little lax, you will lose more snow off the outside edges but still will work. Back dragging with a scoop plow is minimal. but overall, the plow will out perform anything out there

    I am thinking about going with either a Western Wide Out or the Hiniker 8 (or 9) foot scoop on an 08 2500 Chevy HD. I have a 7.5 Hiniker that doesn't stack near as well as my 8 foot Westerns do. Does anyone have any experience on that? Money is not the problem, I just want what's gonna do the best job.

    I didn't have any problem stacking with my scoop. It is pretty fast too.
