    Yeah, they're good. Can you be more specific? Try doing a search for Snoways on past threads.

    sno-way

    Wannabe, I was going to get a 9' 32 series sno-way but I couldn't find or get enough positive feedback on this plow. I'm in WI not more than 30 miles from where they make them and called the headquarters and asked for the name of someone who is using this plopw for light commercial/ residential. They never called me back so I think i'm going to play it safe and buy a western poly. Parts seem more plentiful.

    I went from a Western SUV plow to the Snoway with down pressure. What a difference! :p

    Tomorrow I will post pics of my rigs during the day.

    I got a 8 foot 3 in. v plow, and a lexan 7 foot 6 in. straight plow both are sweet and the down pressure system is second to nobody!

    I run the plows on a 2003 F350 Diesel(v plow), 2004 F250 Gas (lexan).

    I actually run the lexan on 99 silverdo but th 04 ford i should take delivery next week I can't wait.

    I would purchase another snoway product again I might buy a jeep and put a small lexan blade on it so it can manover really tight spaces and would be ideal for my residential routes.

    Thanks, Dan

    I got a 1998 7'6" lexan ht with down presure(no it doesn't lift the front tires off the ground with this truck) on a 1992 f350 7.3 IDI. I like it although alot parts are hard to get on demand but thats what the emergency kit is for. I do eight accounts 3 light commercial and 5 residental. If I ever go full on commercial I'd buy a blizzard. only because I don't like v-plows I don't know about snoways v but everything else seams to leave a trail right where it v's at. alot of the little things you can just buy western parts for or some other make of plows.

    I have 1-7'6"lexan, 1-7'6" steel and 1-8'3" Lobo V plow Snowway Plows.
    They have performed well and the weight saving is a must if using a plow on lighter GVW trucks.
    Our local police have been on a rampage the last few years and there is now way of getting most 3/4 tons and any 1/2 tons legal with a Boss V or other heavier plows.
    I've gone to 1 tons to carry the bigger plows.

    Hope this helps.

    Mine is great, I use it as a storm door. And the down-pressure, just what i want, somethings that takes away traction, breaking and steering ability.

    re. police check
    Our city police has a Traffic Division which has a scale and they spot check truck plows.trailers hauling skidsteers ect.
    They scale your front axle,rear axle and your GVW.
    In 97 I had a new HDF250 reg cab with the snow package option and the large Lobo V plow.
    I was scaled and was over on the front.We added weight behind the rear wheels until the front was legal,and the back was legal but the GVW was over.I had to drop the plow and was fined.
    I had to change the plow to a snowway 7'6"for the remainder of the trucks lease
