    One of those who advertise here is located close to me.

    I have never ran this brand of plow but see them around town. Not able to catch a user to ask their opinion.

    So I though I would ask you.

    I have a dealer right down the road. There seems to be a lot of those there for repair. I personally know one person that has one, this is year 3. It spends a lot of time at the dealer and he is calling me for help.

    I installed one Snowdogg a straight plow One thing I didn't like about it was the truck mounts hanging down.

    A friends company has a few snowdoggs and a couple westerns, they regret not having all westerns. Everytime I ask them what they think of their snowdoggs the first thing they say is don't buy one.

    On a separate note, there's a nifty search function up there in the top right corner of your screen. It might save you some time from creating all sorts of new threads each day while waiting for it to snow.

    Liked my first one enough I bought a second. 130 inches of snow last winter and they got the job done. The controller is a bit big, and they are heavy, but for me at least they have worked just fine.

    answer: buyers doesn't do R&D or buy patents they just copy others, and cut corners to save production costs.
