    Well generally when you buy a plow, you have to go the dealer to ask for pricing, ask them then. I can't see them changing there warranty on a new plow.

    The warranty period on all new MegaBlade plows will be as follows:

    2 year structural
    2 year electric/hydraulic

    The warranty as in the past will cover both manfacturing or material defects for the 2 year period.

    I've put a lot of Snoways out there. Not having problems with structural integrity. No manufacturer in their right mind is going to warranty a plow against bending. read any of the "LIMITED WARRANTY" offered by any manufacturer, the warranty is against manufacturing defects, broken welds, etc...

    Hmmmm!
    This 32 series Snoway is the 4th Snoway I've owned. The others were 26series and a v-plow.
    I have had nothing but problems with this one.
    A good friend of mine has 6- 32's in his fleet and has had the identical problems.
    The dealer has 3 or 4 more besides mine sitting in his yard waiting for decisions from Snoway on what they're going to do about the cracks in the blades.
    Along with the lists of items he replaced all ready under warranty.
    Odd how now Snoway has built a heavier duty plow without hearing about any of these
    problems.

    Cracks in the Moldboard frame? Are the welds breaking or the steel itself? Do you have some pics you could post? I am curious as I've not been seeing this problem.

    Have you seen the new Megas. The extra weight seems more frame and mounting then moldboard structure.

    Yes the structural warranty has been changed to 2 years on the MegaBlade models. I believe that the design of these plows will be more durable than our previous designs, as well as other plows available on the market. Testing has shown us this up to this point.

    That being said, this is a brand new product and the decision was made to go to the 2 year warranty when the product was launched. 2 years matches or exceeds most competitive lines that are on the market today.

    The others are too blurry...
    The worst one is on the A frame under the pump.
    My dealer put a brand new one on in Jan.08 ate the cost thanks
    to Snoway and its cracked again.
    He's got more plows sitting on trailer that Tom and the guys allready
    looked at...
    Really sucks 2 year old plows and manufacturer won't back their warranty.
