    they cant hold up to a pick-up truck.... you really think there gonna hold up to a tractor???

    The only reason why someone would buy snoway is for the downpressure, if you got a tractor you got that already.... Run away from snoway as fast as you can

    I'm pretty sure he's a snow way guy anyhow, so that will not help him to much.

    Don't condem an entire line because of one model, If you did that there would not be a manufacturer in the world that would meet your approval.

    I give you,
    Ford Pinto,
    the first year DD poly boxes,
    Fisher XV hinge,
    Meyers crossover relief,
    Chevy Vega,
    toaster pizzia,
    V-6 cherrokes,
    western's first genteration "flowstat" pumps (remember they mounted to the lift ram),
    All the things on Blizzards Jerre makes a living fixing.

    And just so you know... I dont own a single item from any of those manufactures.... Except for chevy.....

    When a manufacturer screws you over big time and you try everything in your power to get them to make it right, and they ABSOLUTLY NOTHING FOR YOU.... then I dont care what else they make, im gonna try and make it known to everyone what a POS company they are and make them loose as many sales as i can.... Sorry but thats my feeling on Noway... Noway will they do anything to help you out....

    Who have had transfer case or front frame issues with the model truck you own that they are not fixing. With the weight you're carrying I hope you added the gussets (http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=48956,) along with all the other work you had to do to achieve the performance you are looking for.



    I am sympathetic to your problems with Snoway, but you make my point, one model's failure do not implicate the entire line. Despite the Cavalier, Vega, broken frames, poorly designed transfer cases, etc. you still bought a Chevy. So off the top of my head I listed some known "failures" and you own a product produced by one of them. I'm sure a little research would find most manufacturers have had a major fiasco at least once. Heck GM has miss managed their product lines to the point they would not exist with out our tax dollars to bail them out. I as a tax payer am pi$$ed, don't like GM to begin with and now my taxes are paying their corporate dividends. But I bet you'd buy another one.:D

    Basher - I see where your coming from 100%, even tho i dont think the cavalier is that bad of a car, vega was before my time, broken frames - never had a problem with that and i push my trucks well beyond thier limits, transfer cases - All i know is the transfer cases from 04-09 HD's are sure one heck of a transfer case... Maby your talking about stuff from back in the day tho.... I get your point and understand it, but I bet chevy woulda worked with me to make it right in one way or another, unlike Noway... Heather lawn spray has a older 20? series blade from a few years ago, Sittin way out in the field at his house...why, cause it was a POS. He said dont buy one, but i didnt listen and now I've waisted more time and energy fighting with Noway im just simply ticked right off at them... I agree i was a sucker to buy something new and untested but you have to agree - this plow WAS NOT fully field tested as Noway claims...

    I agree but lets talk apples to apples. I and a lot of other people have had good experiences with Snoway Plows. We are not discussing your particular model.

    Way to hijack a thread "L"!! Just let the guy try to get the info he's looking for! I have had some recent issues with SW but they are entirely dealer related, and I still say that with a good dealer support network I would have replaced/upgraded everything to SW.
