    Just noticed something in your pic....the passenger side frame handle....is it there...can't see the orange grip? Just wondering if it broke off or how much force it took to do that? I have a 7.5' Curtis Sno-Pro 3000 but earlier model, and want to make sure mine doesn't break.

    never had one, i looked at a buddies curtis yesterday and his had two and i was like hmmm mine only has one, maybe the two handles are a newer year change, my plows prolly 5-6 years old by now. best i can figure the eearlier plows only came with one.

    Yours is definitely newer than mine...your trip springs go up at an angle...mine go up straight..this was one of the revisions they made on the redesign. Nice clean lot by the way.

    hmmmm i dunno then, lol its weird that your older curtis has two handles, and the new curtis plows have 2 handles, but mine has one, lol maybe they made some mid production ones with only one handle????

    Nice clean job :salute: :salute: How long dose it take to do that lot between the building and the cliff ? Is there any more space on the other side of the building?

    this is the back lot of this property there is a front lot as well about half its size, it takes about 2 hours with one truck (to plow the whole property), thats usually with shoveling the sidewalk as well, which runs the length of the building front and rear.

    as for how long it takes to plow the back lot prolly about 30-40 minuts.

    That lot would look better with a ford or a chevy plowing it.

    Just to let you know.

    ill have to look but i dont think so, the dakota is the little driveway truck doesnt see too much plowing really, more of a backup truck if something happins, last year my truck went down in the middle of a storm, and i plowed with the dakota all day and destroyed the tranny, lol so we take it easy on her shes a lightweight.

    ill tell ya what if your gonna plow with a dakota make damn sure you dont overheat the tranny, lol and never ever ever use it for commercial plowing. like i said last year my truck went donw and i plowed the piss outa it and the tranny gave way, that was with 30k mles on the clock.

    now if your going to stick to just driveways then i say go for it, its a great little driveway truck with tons of power. we have had the dakota for roughly 3 years now.
