    Hi All,

    Have been reading the post here the last 3 hours trying to get a sense of the curtis plow line. I am looking to outfit a plow on my 90 Jeep Cherokee Laredo and the 7' HOME-PRO 3000 is what seems to be the only curtis plow available. I see a lot of talk about the PRO 3000 but not that much with regards to the Home-Pro. I have 2 driveways of my own to do and about 10 others. One concern I have is with back scrapping since a few of these are straight in jobs from the garage door out that I pull head in, drop blade and back out. The only other option I have found is a meyers setup. So with that said I would welcome any and all suggestions and experiences with regards to the HomePro. The idea of easy on easy off beats the meyers setup but that is not the only thing to consider as I am sure you all would agree. I appreciate your input and time.

    Wish you all a healthy and Happy New Year 2008 :waving:

    The home pro is a scaled down version of the Sno pro, it uses a light weight tubular frame and a ploy moldboard. The rest is pretty much the same, full size pumps, cylinders and hoses, wiring and controls are the same, best part is the Hitch & run system, you'll love that.

    I can say how it will work on back dragging, Never used one, if it's an absolute that you need down pressure, try a Fisher Homestead orWestern Suburbanite ( clones) or look at a Snow Way, I don't know what Boss or Blizzard has in that size vehicle.

    Thanks Nascar24 for your input.. will have to look at the sno-way also then... from my initial information and the pictures I have seen of the sno-way mounts the crutis mount looks a lot neater on the truck but I suppose the look will depend on the truck too. Guess I will wait for additional comments before I pull the trigger...

    Thanks again and wish you and your family a healthy and Happy New Year 2008 :bluebounc

    Have owned both Snoway and Curtis and for your application I would say go with the Snoway 110%. For anyone which does alot of back blading and on smaller applications they are the way to go. For the Heavy Commercial big lots they seem to be on the small side. Although the 8.0' or the V blade might be different. As for neetness and EZ on and off they are about the same.

    Both blades have thier pros and cons.
