    Does anyone know what brand of snow plows the NYC Department of Public Works uses?

    Kinda like this morning. I'm getting gas, guy pull in with his fancy Dodge Cummins. Big Boss V plow. I was just wondering where the right side of his front bumper was? But why ask.

    I bought some stock in DD and want to know if NYC uses their products since they got a huge snow storm. I'm sure there's a whole bunch of plows that are used, but figure there's maybe some type of public record of which brand?

    I thought if it's over 6" they use flink, and over 8" they switch to snowdogg. Then over 15" it's meyer....20"+ it's boss all the way.
    So, guess your sol....Sorry

    DD does own the Henderson plow brand so it's possible that there are some being used in NYC. It's been tough to see what they're using because the ones I've seen have all been snow covered.

    Yeah aren't Henderson's products mostly orange and un-labeled? Not sure if there are others out there that look the same or not for the big DPW plows.

    I did see a few Westerns yesterday, but not affixed to any of the official DPW rigs. Those were probably subcontractors or private businesses.

    Nyc sanitation plows are at least 15yrs old....beat up rusted orange nameless plows. Smaller plows on pick ups etc for the city is a mix of usual brands.
