    We got 10-12" here and the dogg was great, second snow in the last week and it's still snowing. This snow was wet and heay but my md75 had no problems with it. I hve a question for anyone with this model, when you have it to full angle and lifted how much space is there from ground to cutting edge? I only have a couple inches and if I drive through a dip it touches. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks

    Hi, mine seems the same as yours. It only clears three inches or more. We don't drive it far with plow on, so no issues with it.Maybe you can raise the chain lift a little? Good luck, we love ours so far!

    I must say that I love my MD75, I do a bit of travelling with mine and I noticed that my mount is set at the lowest holes and is only about 8 inches off the ground. I am thinking that maybe I could raise the cross memeber to the next set of holes as this would give me another inch I think. Which would be perfect. I did read in the manual that the cross bar should be 9.5" off the ground or somehting like that. Maybe I will try this. I must say that it is so nice to have a plow that angles from in the truck, I have been able to cut my times per drive way down.

    I wouldnt do the MD for commercial work. They are good for homeowners and light residential work. If you want to stick with 7.5, go with the HD series. It is much stronger and built off the same specs as the EX series plows.

    i am torn, because i just want it as a back up, but at the same time, i don't want to buy something that is just going to get wrecked using it, i am leaning towards the HD, the biggest supporter of me using the MD is the rep here, he has said that it is fine for light commercial and that for what i plan on using it for i am good to go, oh well, i am going to spend a couple days mulling it over

    I think the MD is pretty beefy for a smaller plow. I like the light weight as far as not taxing the vehicle's suspension so much.... vs. the heavy duty plow being "bulletproof" but wreaking havic on the front end of the truck.

    I just ordered my MD 75 Snow Dogg today. There is 280 LBS differance between the MD and the HD plows. From what I was told they are based on the type of truck suspension. The MD is for tighter trucks. I would want the HD for commerical work.
