    This is a picture of our first plow. Next year it goes on something smaller and the Dodge gets a V-Plow. Lots of fun in 6 in. Wish I knew more about it. But, I'm learning fast.

    I think it's electric on that plow.

    Hard to tell by the pic, you would need some big arms to lift that:dizzy:

    Sorry it took so long to respond. Been a little busy. YES, I am plowing commercial with it. Sorry it's not something fancy and expensive. We just started with the snow plowing. Normally we just run sweeper trucks. I'll post a few pics of it working soon.

    wow i would love to destroy that plow in a nice lake effect storm herer. were not busting you becasuse its not fancy and expensive, its because that plow is NOT made to withstand commercial plowing its a home owner plow. it might be cheap but just think of the money youll lose on accounts when that plow is busted and someone else steals your work. it takes a long time to build up a good name but it can become a bad name in one storm :salute:

    Easy guys, looks like its making money in the pictures to me. If they usually can use sweepers, I dont think he needs to worry too much about a massive lake effect snow. If it makes him money, its not bad is it?

    If the plow breaks and puts you in a bind, you can just drop the head of the sweeper down and plow with it or fire it up and suck the snow off of the lot. :D j/k

    What brand of sweepers do you run?

    Like I said. It's our first plow so I'm learning. Works great so far. I'm still learning though. Here we're normally lucky to ever get 3 inches of snow. But, this year we've set records for almost 19 inches in 2 storms. The snowbear is still working. I only meant to use it for 1 season though. Thanks to the last 2 storms, I can now afford a V-Plow or something else. Any advice? I'm thinking V. Let me know. I posted pics of Our Snowbear working earlier.

    Comsweep,
    I am with ya man! I started 5 years ago with one on a 2wd f150 doing commercial lots. That is now history, and now I own 3 commercial plows and 4x4 trucks to do my lots and more as a sub. I understand you got to start somewhere, that is how I did it also. My snowbear is still being used by my brother in law in Michigan on his drive and some others also. They are great light duty plows. Happy Plowing!
