    Here is a question with a twist of thinking.
    Say you are going out to spread salt or Ice melt and there is no need for a plow since it is sleeting. Do you still Mount the plow for front end ballast or go without? I have a 8' v spreader and find I need it on front when the spreader is full. It helps balance the truck. Ron
