    Well, here it is. I'm 19. I own a lawn care business and i do this on the side. The truck is a 98 Chevy Silverado. Great Truck. Then there's my 05 Rubicon with the 52'' blackline plow and the Honda snowblower. Don't mind the wires. They're just temporary. Both are great machines, but i can't say much for the plow because it hasn't snowed yet! The plow gets to about 11'' off of the ground when full raised. This blackline is a pretty heavy plow too. It drops the front down about an 1 1/2 to 2 inches. Depends where you measure. The honda blower.. well, its pretty much a beast. To me, and in my location, it is the best snowblower around that i have used. It can handle just about everything. The only thing i ever had a problem with was when the 21'' snowfall last winter. Comments? questions? -Peter

    Nice plow/blower.

    You may want to upgrade those front shocks, Your gonna wear out a lot of CV's with that heavy plow on it.

    Thanks Guys.. The atv is under warrenty for another 4 years. I wouldn't know about riding it in the snow. I got it in June i believe. I did have these when i was like 9 or 10, until they got stolen. I liked them back then, so i bought my own.

    Rubicons are excellent workhorses. Very nice setup. How does it angle?

    Nice pete,

    The only weak part i see is where it attaches, possibly bending, but im sure youll never have that problem bc its never going to snow lol.

    Did you ever get it loaded in your truck? lets see some pics

    ive always liked those blacklines because they aren't winch operated and are hydraulically angled....VERY nice

    Thanks.. On the actualy switch to move it up and down.. theres arrows for side to side. they don't have this option out yet.. so it's as simple as pulling out two pins.

    Yea, i was thinking the same thing.. If you notice, there's only 4 "Screws" that the mounting plate attaches to. I don't know how its suppose to hold it. It looks OK for now. If something comes up ill have someone fab up something to make it work.

    I hear u on the snow.. lol Nothing cold till at least january.

    I did have the truck loaded today but i didn't think of taking any pictures. I am able to fit 1 blower, the salt spreader, the atv, plow, ramps and salt amazingly. The tailgate does stay down though. Its tight, but it's my only choice for now. I'll post some pics when/if it ever snows. - Peter

    Sorry to tell you, but they don't make the hydaulic angleing yet. It has the arrows for up and down, side to side, but you have to pull out two pins in order to angle it. The side to side arrowns don't do anything.

    I am the only one seeing it?

    I guess that I am the only one seeing their web page right or I might be seeing things. :dizzy: On the main page to there website they have power angle listed as a new option for the plows. It comes in:

    Regular Duty - $499.99
    Commercial Duty - $799.99

    Also they have a power brush that is coming soon but they don't have it for sale yet. I am just making sure that I am not seeing things. Let me know.

    Yea, your rite. They must of just came out with it. When i bought it in the summer time they didn't have the option. The one in the picture looks stupid because you can only angle it one way. The other side still has the pin style on it. Doesn't make sense to me.

    hey pete, one thing i had a q about after watching the video on there website was that does the plow float?

    What do you mean by float? It does have a tremendous amount of down pressure. It can literally lift up the front tires off the ground.... if thats what your asking...
