    I have a 05' Toyota Tacoma and currently have a series 24 6'-8" w/DP love the plow but was thinking about going to a ST 6'-8" w/DP and a wireless controller instead of my current joystick. Main reason for the change would be the weight factor. I do have Timbren's on the front and back (I use a Snowman back plow for ballast and back dragging) I am just looking for some opinons as to if I will be disappointed with the lighter ST vs the 24?

    Thanks:wesport

    Have you considered putting your 24 on a diet? change it to Poly skin and a Poly blade save a ton of weight and retain the advantages of the higher blade.

    The 24 already has a poly skin on it but of coarse the scraper blade is metal. I figure the metal is better as the poly (from what I read) does not scrape very well.

    I now have my 7'6" MT "on bashers diet" on my Isuzu Trooper. I replaced the 6'8" ST that was on it. I love the taller blade, and the poly edge scrapes just as well as the steel did. I love it. It's like plowing with sports car with a full size blade. I like plowing with it better than with my F250.

    Does anyone know if I can put a 24 blade onto a ST A frame? And then vice versa a ST blade onto a 24 A frame so that I would have something to sell? I am thinking that the Wireless controller on the ST is the way to go as opposed to the Joystick on my current 24 also I would think that the ST A frame would save me a little weight as well, although I am used to the joystick I would think that the hand held is the way to go.

    Not a good idea, the ST A-frame is not designed for the extra loads.

    If you are serious about getting an ST I would consider selling mine. The 7'6' is installed, and has never been used, and I have the original 6'8" blade too. It has a wired controller. If you have a 3 pin mount it should plug and play.
