    A Western dealer has a new left over 9 foot Ultramount. The price is $3200 with standard controls. What do you think about the price? Thanks.

    Yeah, I think they left something out in that price quote...

    I did misstate the quote. It was $3300. They threw in a poly deflector for $45, and tax was $183.98. Out the door price came to $3528.98. Now only the blade was a left over item. Everything else was new in the box, including Nighthawk lights. I just finished the installation on my Chev 2500HD today. Now its time to send the old reliable 78 Ford down the road. So long old friend, you were one plowing S.O.B. :salute:

    Well, you got a good deal... Good Luck with the plow and Chevy. Should be a good combo...

    Here is a picture for your enjoyment. Has anyone come up with slick way to add weight in the rear? My old plow truck, which was used only for plowing, would get a bunch of fire wood in the back each fall. With this truck I need to keep the box available for use. I suppose I could just go find a BIG girl friend to ride in the box. Any better ideas?

    Put a spreader on the back, balance it out and make much more $$$ A Pro Flo 2 goes very nicely! Thats what I did...

    :waving: If your not interested in a spreader, Head down to your local hardware guys and buy some sand bags :nod: It'll give you the weight you need and if you get in a bind you can use the sand to get yourself going again. They're practical and inexpensive. :salute:
