    Sure you can but I'd say 7.5 is as big as you want to go.

    Sure, you can put a plow on anything;

    Lawn mower

    Bicycle

    Yugo

    Lamborghini

    or just push one by hand

    It all comes down to how much and for what (your own driveway or two million sq ft malls) you're going to use it.

    plow

    as long as you have a heavy enough front gross axle weight rating,otherwise you will need timbren load boosters or front air bags.

    There was a picture floating around here (and other places) of a bicycle with a plow on it. Maybe someone knows how to find it. Or try a search on "bicycle". There are plows you can hook to the bumper of a car, so I reckon they could go on a Yugo or Lamborghini. I saw a video somewhere of one on a station wagon.

    LMFAO. That is too funny. LOL. Hey it is a good idea, but the only thing missing is the chains on the tires. :rolleyes: I have rode a bike in the snow it is not that easy, let alone a bike with a pull plow. Does that have down pressure and a wire less remote? :dizzy:

    Do you just do drive ways? Hell if i had that truck i would put a plow and a spreader on that right away. I would put a 7'6" Western or Fisher on your F150. (check ebay there are tons of deals on there now.) That would be good for drive ways. But that F450, Like i said i would put a plow on there. That sounds like a good money maker.

    Hell i was thinking of putting a plow on my 2 WD S-10. To do some drives this year. Hell if you can put one on a Hurst, a S-10 will work. LOL

    You can get good practice with the 1/2 ton doing driveways. And maybe next year you will go commercial. You will make good money with the F450, you live upstate NY where you get tons of snow. I would put a Wideout or a 9'6" with wings on that baby. Did you check out ebay for the plow for the F150? There are alot of good deals there. I have been looking for a while. Good luck with your find. By the way is your F450 an '08?
