Stick with Curtis? Or jump to SnowDogg or Western?

    Hey guys - long time lurker - first time poster.
    I'm due for a new plow - got an old Curtis rusting off of my truck. I really like the plow - but I'm a little worried about the future of Curtis. I've been looking at Western or SnowDogg, but now I'm wondering if I should stick with what I know. I do like the mount. Of course, SnowDogg is stainless. Western has a good reputation, but a little pricey

    Stick with curtis. Bought one two years ago and love it and have not had problems with it at all. The dealer in my town tell me their is nothing to worry about with curtis they aren't going any were. And the new lights are great to. So I think u should stick with what u know.

    It's all in what you can get good service for in your area.

    When it breaks, I want the right parts or service ASAP. I don't mind paying a few extra bucks for the convenience of good service. The dealer needs to be able to handle the volume when it snows we need it fixed yesterday!

    I like my curtis, but i'm wondering why curtis wouldn't do away with the pump and motor down in the A-frame and use the same style harness as their trip edge plows?? Seems like a no brainer, get the "brains" of the plow up out of that snow and salt catch basin!

    Thanks guys - that certainly makes me a feel better. I like the plow - might be worth sticking with them. It just seemed pretty quiet out there on the Curtis front.

    my curtis is going on 9 years old without a single problem, only changed the fluid twice in 8 years. if i had a curtis dealer closer to my house i would have bought a curtis over the boss plow i just bought for the chevy.
