    New to the site and found a ton of useful info...

    I'm tired of pushing a snowblower and am looking at putting a plow on my 2001 Mercury Mountaineer, AWD, 302 V8. It's got some miles but is in pretty great shape.. Tows like a beast. I have noob questions... I figure I can plow my drive way and a few others and it becomes a wash cost wise... Looking at all the different brands factoring price I'm leaning towards a Snowdogg 7"4" setup. Closest dealer is at $3300 installed (Exploder undercarraige) which I think is fair if it will work...

    Mountaineer and Exploders- essentially the same from what I can find out.
    Ladder frames. Anyone running a plow on either of these? Any issues?
    Can anyone comment on the frame / differences if any.

    What about contracts with customers pro's / cons???

    Anything else I should consider / need to know...

    Thank

    302 is a 5.0L... essentally the same motor in the Mustang GTO but tuned differently...
    I believe it's rated at 215hp

    I took the plunge and put on a SnowDogg. I could not justify the cost difference between the SnoWay and others and the Dogg... I do like the Sno-Way,,, I have a thread under the SnowDogg section but so far I'm very pleased..
