    I forget who makes them, if I remember right its basically a plow that will cover 4 lanes.

    it's called a tow plow. It's used to move mass amounts of snow of multi-lane roads.

    That is what they call a Tow Plow, the trailer has steering axles and can shift into the next lane and plow it. The salt spreader supplies weight to the trailer for tracking. I haven't seem one in Michigan yet but there are video's on " You Tube". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwE1IrUzVHM&NR=1&feature=fvwp

    never had them bought the plow and truck separate the old truck was lifted so the lights where real short on it. so i had to modify the mount got everything for 250 dollars so its paid for its self over and over this year also got a snow ex 1075 with it but its going on my new plow truck. wich is getting a brand new plow so it wont look goffey but its paid for and is helping to buy new equipment. and help me pay bills also lol
