    I have been in the landscape industry for several years and this year I have decided to get a plow for my 2005 Chevy 2500HD Duramax. I would like some feedback as to what plow would be the best for my application. I will prolly be doing mostly small parking lots and driveways. I wanted a 7.5 or 8' plow. I really would like a used plow so if anybody has a good used plow to sell, please let me know. I live in Lancaster, PA. I was looking at the western and meyer plows the most. Thanks for you help!!!

    We need a little more information about the truck, extended cab, long bed? I wouldn't go any narrower than 8', with a bias towards 8.5' or 9'.

    If you're looking for commercial-style production, I'd steer away from Meyer. Years of experience has taught me that.... I run Western, but that doesn't mean that you need to. Find out what your local dealer network is like, who has the best customer support, and go with them.:cool:

    my truck is 05 duramax, ext cab long bed. I like the westerns too and it seems they are the plow to have, especially to hold up for years to come. I just hate to drop 5g right now on hoping that it snows, but maybe its worth the risk.

    Look into boss as well. My neighbor has an 8 foot super duty, and my uncle has an 8 foot western super duty, and by far the boss is my choice. No chain slap, all hydraulics, FAST hydraulics

    You want at least 8 foot of blade you could carry 8.5 if you choose carefully. There are a lot of threads on this topic and the most prevalent consistent piece of advice is an excellent one. You need dealer support. There are a number of dealers in your area representing Snoway, Meyer, Western, Boss check out who has the inventory and personal to handle your problems if they should arise.
