    Whats going on PROS,
    I have a quick question for anyone to respond. I am going to buy a Western plow with an ultra mount. How much am i looking at to buy one for the entire set up? Also, what Western salt spreader would u recommend? I am doing residential drives and 6 apartment building and a few gas stations? Any good bag salt brands. I am going to have to stick to bag salt for this year. Thanks for your input!!!

    For an example of plow costs: http://www.centralparts.com/complete-western.asp

    For a sander, put a two-stage tailgate model sander on that 2500. The 1500 is really too small for a sander.

    Can't help you much on salt brands, I use mostly bulk. You might try Lesco or Home Depot.
