    Hello, I wanted to introduce myself. My name is John. I work for the Board of Education in my town for 11 years and I have my own Mechanical/HVACR Business. I plow for he school also. We have 11 schools in our district. I got started in plowing when my parents had a landscaping Business that had numerous residential and commercial clients. I'm looking into getting back into plowing after getting rid of my 04 F-250 diesel truck last year and selling plow to buy my wife a new SUV for christmas. I now have a 98.5 Dodge CTD hopped up a bit. I have lined up a 7 1/2 ft Western Uni-Mount system. IS a truck mount still available for this set up? If some one or a vendor PM me, If they have a lead or price for the mount would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to meeting other members and the vast knowledge on this site.

    Thanks,

    John

    Anything to widen it up a bit, make sure you're getting a quality reliable piece of equipment, not just a good price, also make sure that you have good delaer support nearby for the brand you are buying.

    Yeah its not a piece of junk. If it was i wouldn't bother with it. At the school I work at we deal with a big company that we purchase grounds equipment from thats also a Western Dealer.
