    i see a lot of them being used for sidewalk crews, there is one local company that it seems like 50% of their plow trucks are NPRs

    Is that a snowex on the back? How do you like the spreader? Do you have any problem traveling during a storm with the truck we just got around 4 inches and my truck wouldnt move in 2wd.

    If I could make it happen, I would have no other trucks than Isuzus and Chevy W series.

    They are by far the best plow trucks I have ever used. We use 8ft Boss Polys with Boss wings, and you just can't beat them on plowing ability.

    I used to think that you HAD to have 4x4 to effectivly plow snow. These trucks continue to supprise me and my employees.

    As for getting around in the snow, They don't plow well on long or steep inclines, so we keep them out of the subdivisions we plow. But, if you stick them in a flat parking lot, watch out!!!!!!! Cab over bull dozers!!!!!!

    They do slide around abit on Ice or slick spots, but what doesn't. I the Vid, the truck plowing has around 2 tons of salt sand in the back, thats a normal traction load, but for a spreading load we go out with 4 to 5 tons. The other one I have has a Snow Ex 6000 in it, and it usually only holds a skid loader bucket of material, and it gets around good as well. Keep weight and GOOD tires and you wont go wrong.

    And Snow Ex 2400s are great as well. I have 2 and am looking to get #3.
