    I found this plow for sale. I have a half ton 03' Chevy Silverado. Its a Meyer 7.5ft with the E57 pump. It was only used for like 1 or 2 years. He is asking $1500, I know he will go to $1300. Is this a good plow for the money, any one have opinions on this plow? Heres a few pics:

    no way that plow has only been used 1 or 2 years. Looks like it's got a few years under it's belt (or cutting edge). I definitely wouldn't go over $1000 for it.

    Remember there isn't a plow in the world that's ever been used commercially... well, at least the ones for sale! And each one of them is only a year or 2 old as well.

    What are your plans for the plow deere? If it's a few residential it'd do the job just fine...but if your starting a whole new commercial route, you don't want to start with a light duty personal use ST series plow. You'd regret it later right price or not. :nod:

    i hate to argue with B&B:rolleyes: lol but there is nothing wrong with a good ole meyer plow. just because they are a little lighter duty dont mean they cant provide many many years of service.

    we have many that have put in many years of service at a verry simple design. Nick'sPlowing and many others have had verry good luck with them.

    but the $1300 price i would have to agree is a little much.....even with the newtouch controlls/harness and maybee a correct mounting carton (i may have one for a 88-98 chev) you can have but still. i'd try to take the $1000 and minus the price for the controller IMO

    haha sorry I got tied up last night. yes the mount that should fit my truck comes with it and the touch pad controller. He is also going to give me the plastic bottom part of my bumber that usually needs cut, so I wouldn't have to cut my bumper

    It sat outside for the last 2 years, I think, he didn't have the skid shoes, but the cutting edge didn't seem too bad

    The fact that its a Meyer or not isn't the determining factor...using an ST series personal use designed plow for hard commercial use instead of the properly designed for commercial use C series is what makes the difference. Meyer gains a ton of bad rap on there "weak blades" because guys want to use an ST series (due to their lighter weight) for commercial use.. only to find they don't hold up since it isn't the job they were designed for.

    Which was the entire reason I asked deere what the intended use was for. :rolleyes:

    That plows worth 1500 all day and night. And while I agree with BB that a C series is better, I dont agree you cant do it with an ST.

    I've made a hundred grand plowing with a used MD2 Diamond/Meyer deal.
    With minimal issues other than corrosion issues we all deal with.

    Im currently redoing the pivot holes in the sector and A-Frame due to serious wear and tear, and am upgrading it,and moving the chain lift points out on the nose instead of on the sector guide, but shoot. Plows 7 years old. I love the plows performance commercially or residentially.

    meyer rocks and my next plow may just be a super v. Unless I go with a wideout, and if meyer made a winged plow like that I'd buy theirs.

    If you can get that plow for 1200-1300 it's a great deal.

    Sometimes you have to spend money to make money !
    It's not about brands, it's what works, use it often ...
