    Both plows are the exact same price installed...
    One is a 3-4 year old Western 7-1/2' standard poly plow and the other is a 2-3 year old 7-1/2' 22 series Sno-way plow.
    Both are in great condition and will come with 1 yr warranty

    This is my 1st year plowing. The plow will go on my 94 Chevy k1500.
    I have 3 accounts so far, 2 apartment complexes and one gas station.

    Well i was thinking the western too, but others have told me the weight difference for the sno-way might be better for my k1500. The other thing im interestd in on the sno-way is the down pressure for back dragging and i havent confirmed it, but i hear the sno-way will stack the snow higher than the western??..any aditional info would be great..i would like to make my decision on friday.

    I have the 8 foot Snoway

    I have the 8 foot Snoway with Down pressure and snowfoil and it works great . I plow with a friend who has the other setup and I can stack the snow in a much higher pile and farther back. The down pressure also works pretty good. The set up seems to work a little better than the Western ive used. Only my opionion here though.

    Stay safe,

    The snoway is the way to go for your truck. The down pressure is the bomb, and once you plow without a chain you'll never want to go back. Stack higher, cuts deeper, rides nicer than anything else around. But not a 22 series, but if it's a 25 series go for it.:waving:

    yeah.. thats what im thinking, i lost out on the Western standard already anyhow, I was taking too much time to decide and it sold.

    Right now I have just over 2k to spend on a plow, and doing my best to try and find a decent used setup.
