    I'll say Daniels 8' over the Ebling expandable pull plows for 3 reasons.

    1. The wider the plow, the more snow you will skip over on uneven ground. Leaves a messy drive.

    2. No wings to break or bend on the Daniels, they are really tough plows with few moving parts.

    3. Cost of Daniels is around half of Ebling.

    I had one quoted last season for $2,725.00, freight was $250.00 to Colorado.

    I talked with Ryan Daniels (assumed he's part of the family) and he was very helpful / knew the product.

    What about snowman plows I see they off one that will allow a salt spreader. Any thoughts on that?

    IMO Ebling. I don't have one yet but that is what I will be getting. If I didn't have to outfit another truck this year that is what I was after.

    I don't own a pull plow for a truck but been thinking about one

    One I like is the Snowman It has a steel cutting edge and its a trip plow

    The Daniels runs a rubber/poly edge So it wont scrape clean
    The Ebling has same type edge Go watch youtube videos You will see it scrapes for the first 10ft then starts leaving

    Snowman price I seen 3500-3800

    Thats a good combination of trip and steel edge. I only use steel for obvious reasons.
