    I have a Sno way ST 7'6" with the down pressure and wireless Remote on a '01 F150 Supercrew. Backdragging with the DP is great on this lighter style plow. I would recommend the Sno way. Depending on the type of vehicle, you maybe even able to go with a 26 Series Sno way. jmo

    what are you looking to mount it on? I just replied to your other post. I just got about an inch or so of snow and it looks like its coming to you!! The suburbanite weighs only 250lbs. no other plow comes close to being that light. for home use it is great, it puts very little stress on the front of the truck and requires no ballast. Put it this way, I had to take the plow to the dealers to get it istalled on the new truck and I, by myself, put in the back of my truck. ..........do that with any other plow!! again, depends on what you want to do, you just cant let the 2' of snow build up!!

    I have a 04 Ranger xlt with one mounted on it and it will push most anything as long as it is not iced up.The only thing I don't like about it is it trips very easy when you have it in the locked mode float is fine.I plow 600 'of driveway and my 40 car parking lot without a problem.I think I would have gone to a larger plow if I was useing it to make a few Bucks$$$ but I just plow my own properties.
