    Hello, would a 9ft meyer steel blade be too heavy/hard on my truck?? The truck is a older chevy kind of like a project truck. Truck is a 3500 dually 4x4 with a cummins 12v engine and heavy duty diffs.The 8ft blade that's on there is on it's last leg and a neighbor said he would sell me a 9ft meyer c9 for $300.00. Blade is in good shape with a newer a-frame and rams. Any ideas???

    Oh and this truck is used 100% commercial, decent sized lots 2-10 acres

    Meyer blades are generally light anyway so that'd probably be fine

    You will be fine for sure. Older trucks are way tougher.

    It'll handle that just fine, even with wings. It's not like your gonna put 50,000 miles on it with the plow hangin' off the front.

    Been there ... Done that... had a 9 foot Meyer on my 1980 , dually, K30. One of my favorite rigs of all time!!! In fact you need a 9 to clear the rear tire track when the plow is angled...Absolutely no weight issues!
