    Hey, I may need a plow for my 1995 F-150. I'm looking at some jobs now, and if I get them I will be making enough money. Just trying to get my feet wet this year. As stated I need a 7 foot 6 inch plow, with a complete setup. Not picky about brand, show me what you got. I would prefer that it would be working properly. I was hoping to spend only around $1000, maybe a bit more. Any one in Wisconsin have anything? Norther Illinois would be alright too. Like I said, I may not need one, but wanted to see what was available. Thanks, Brant.

    Ive got a 1 year old western ultra mount pro 7'6" for sale in Port Washington. It still looks brand . Likely more than you want to spend but let me know if you are interested

    Hi, thanks for the offer. I think that that is a little out of my price range. That's probably worth $3000, or so? I just need something that's cheap but works, this being my first year. I hope that you sell it. By the way Snowbrdr360, do you know about how much it would cost to get a plow mounted to a truck? I was thinking around $500? Does this sound about right?

    Thanks,
    Brant

    couple things to think about, for a thousand bucks your not going to find a decient plow, you might have more trouble fixing the old plow when it breaks then its worth.

    your better off spending the little extra to find a decient plow, esp if your thinking of doing this every winter, you mine as well buy something you wont have to replace in a year.

    as for the cost to install a plow on the truck, all depends who you have do it, i only paid like 250 to have mine installed, so shop around and see who has the best price for installs.

    That's probably true. But I don't have more than $1000 to pay for it. Unless I would take out a loan or something. Is that a good idea? I could probably pay it off by next winter for sure.
