    I found a used Sno-way plow for cheap money, but I dont know what it is, havent made contact with the owner yet. I checked the Sno-way website and didnt find the Predator. All I know is the one I saw was a poly blade with a sticker in the middle reading Predator, and the for sale sign said "universal". I cant understand why I couldnt find it on Sno-ways website, is it maybe an affiliate or something? Anyway, I think it was an 8 footer, but I didnt measure it. My biggest question is is it fairly tough or is it a wimpy homeowner type plow? I need something rugged enough for a 1-ton. What is it worth, because this thing looked pretty new and was under a grand. Thanks for your input.

    The entire line of snoway snowplows are dubbed the Predator Series. Not sure why. But basically its like Fisher would call it's X blade. (of course that has a litteral meaning when looking at it from behind. But Predator is the just the general nameof the plows.

    Detroitdan,

    If you can get the serial number, I can tell you exactly what you are looking and the applications that it was designed for.

    Sno-Way used to refer to all straight plows as "Predator" and v-plows as "Lobo". We no longer use these names.

    Detroitdan,

    It would be helpful for me to tell you where to locate the serial number. Serial number will be printed on a silver tag attached to the top of the a-frame on the plow.

    The DB-1037 is the model # for the Fenner Hydraulic power unit on the plow. The serial # on the a-frame and blade frame would help to identify the model plow that you have.

    Tom,

    Thanks for the help. If you would look at this link from an ebay auction, maybe you can tell me what I would need to buy, with part numbers to make this plow fit my truck. When I asked the seller the model number of the plow, the number you interpreted for me is what he gave me. Also approx. costs for the parts needed? I have a 2006 Chevy Silverado, ext. cab 1500.

    Here is the link.. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/SNOW...091870337QQcategoryZ63688QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    Thanks a million!

    Hey Give Scott A Call At Nw Ent. 17158348426. Most People Are Going To Tell You That You Need To Convert The Plow To The New Set Up(2 Pin Vs 3pin) He May Be Able To Find The Stuff You Need. He Did For Me, Just A Few Months Ago. I Actually Paid The Same Price For The Exact Same Plow. Mt-24 7'6". Seems To Be A Good Price. Much Better Than
    $4k New. Good Luck
