    I have a Snoway 7.5 on a 99 F150. Was out in the last storm. I was doing so long runs around the building. Plowing 15-20 mph :nono: in the back by the tractor trailers. All of a sudden WHAM! Bam Ca gunk! :dizzy: Thought I hit the trailer or SOMETHING. Well, yeah, I hit something alright. There was an island that was not marked that the trailer back up to. 4 inch curb. Got out of truck to check things out. Thinking to myself that one is going to be expensive to repair. Snoway? Nothing, nada, squat, barely a scratch. Curb? 3 inch chunk taken out of it. Way to go Snoway. Earned my trust. If you have any doubts about Snoway I can vouch first hand they can take a hard hit and still go.

    Luv it when you do that and everything that was in your back seat ends up in the front seat and you can't see straight for about 30 seconds cause the more you think about what you could have possible just hit the madder you get!! Maybe that is just me :)

    I find my plow trips really easily when it digs in. I always try to back up out of the trip before the plow frees up and slams back into the A frame. I hate that banging.

    What series snoway are you running? I'm looking at getting into one of their 9' or 10' 32s. That must be what you have unless you have a V. Any complaints at all.
