I have some accounts that I have to take care of this winter and that means I need a plow minimum.. spreader possibly.. I need to know what kind of plow should I get? V, Strait, etc. brands maybe you prefer. Thanks for any help!! And Please Help!

    I'm assuming that your plowing parking lots because you need a spreader. Try for a Boss V plow.

    Grab a cup of coffee and comfy chair. You have a lot of searching and reading to do.

    If you need a spreader

    I'm putting my SaltDogg spreader up for sale. Being you're in Mo. it may be a good deal for you if you want to pick up and not ship. 1.5 model fits in short beds, only used twice. Approx. 12 tons sand through it. $3000.00 Had it in my 99 F-250 short bed. Contract over with and I'm out.
