    Hi all,

    There was a discussion started in this topic of possibly developing a single database to compare snow plows. I think it's a great idea and since I have some down time at work, decided to jump on it and see what I could come up with.

    Attached is a shot of what exactly it would include. This is by no means final. There is some debate about some stats being right and wrong in the other thread. I am using manufacturer provided stats here and not all companies provide the same info so there is some blank spots that I don't know.

    I'm looking for feedback from people on ideas of whether this is truly a good idea and a way to make it user friendly. If I get it done, I can make it a downloadble PDF file for everyone to have. It will include all types of plows from all the manufacturers. It will be a time lengthy project, but I figure it could be something that could be very useful for people.

    So please, thoughts, comments, questions, info corrections, or other ideas.

    Dave.

    That looks like it is going to be a very handy resource for people buying new plows...

    Keep up the good work!

    Attached is what I have so far with 35 plows. Still a lot of work ahead of me, but Expanding plows and V plows are complete (to my knowledge).

    Please note I am only doing commercial duty plows, not personal plows. There is some stuff I don't know, so if you have an idea of the right info. Please let me know.

    I will attach the next one when I have more done. ENJOY!

    Dave
