    What size plow would you reccomend if you were putting it on a f250 diesel and you were needing it for three or four parking lots with the largest one being 2500-3000 sq ft?

    You can't go wrong with a 8' staight blade. Go with a brand that had a good dealer in your area. I like Boss, Blizzard, and Western in that order for me.

    We don't get much snow around here, so the demand for dealers isn't very high. We have 1 meyer dealer close but every other dealer is an hour or two away.

    Thanks for tolerating my posts....I did get to PM a guy about a used plow setup.

    A 9ft Boss V or any V plow with some optional wings would be nice or a buzzard Ah uI mean a blizzard expandable.

    Minimum would be a 8.2 with wings (it is 10.5)

    Anything but a straight blade for big lots, it is nice to able to contain the snow in the plow so you can move it from one area to another with out spilling.

    You could go with a 7.6 plow with wings or and eight foot plow with wings. I put wings on my Fisher last year and I have a span or 10' with the wings on and 8' without. I would say 8'.

    I had my Ultramount on my 02' F250 and put on my new GMC. Highly recommend Western. What ever you put on, do not go below 8' because on Ford anything smaller will not cover the wheel base on a full angle. Good Luck !

    As mentioned many times no less than 8'. I have the 810 Blizzard and love it. Just my 2 cents, pick a company that has good service and is close to your jobs for service in a pinch not from what people tell you to do. Oh did I mention I friggen love my 810 Blizzard? :salute:
