    Heres a shot of our small rig. We use it to plow sidewalks and a parking garage roof. We run ice melt through the downeaster electric spreader and it has a snoway 22 series plow on the front with a rubber edge.

    That's a nice looking truck. How do you like the 22?

    The guys love this truck. The plow is extremely fast, and is perfect for what we need it to do. At first we saw the plow once it was installed and thought it would be a piece of junk, but it has turned out to be a great little plow. The property we use it on has extremely wide and long sidewalks so this helps us get them done quicker in big events. The parking garage we plow won't allow anything over 1/2 ton to plow the roof, so we use this in conjunction with a bobcat. It suits us quite well.

    88 Jeep comanche, I've always plowed with small trucks mostly Jeeps and a Scout II. At work I use a full size and I bet I could plow circles around it with this.

    Here's my '03 Ranger, 4.0L, 5-speed, and a 7'6" Sno-way. This was taken this summer with no ballast weight and junk tires. I'll have to get more pics up soon.

    Hey Brandon - didn't you have an older Ranger (maybe a '98) with a unimount? The '03 looks sweet!

    Yep, I had a '97 with a 6'6" Unimount. Good little truck, but the new setup is much better. The old one is still going strong though. Thanks for the kind words.

    I don't have any pics yet, but have been plowing with my ranger for 12 years now.

    1992 Ranger STX with Sno-Way 24d plow
    Works great. I like the agility of the ranger in small parking lots, and have yet to have a snow I could not handle with it.
