    I like the meyer ,snow dogg and fisher. The blizzard is a good plow too but they have poor ground clearance.

    Fisher HTS- there's a few other guys on here that have them- as long as you have a good Fisher dealer- that's what I'd go with- or the Western equivelant would be good too

    Light commercial, as in paved lots, small lots, typical snowfall of 1-3" is a storm...........vs, un paved lots, large lots, roads, storms of 8" plus. Shot in dark

    I was just wondering what type of accounts he was doing. Would help with plow selection.

    No Worries, We have "light commercial" lots here, Im used to the question is all. The dealer tried to sell me a snowdogg light duty plow, I took one look at it and was like you have to be kidding! The lights barely sat above the plow when it was on the ground let alone if it was up.
    I would look at everything above the homeoener model. It would just depend on what dealers you have in your area.

    Western's plow selection indentifies only the Suburbanite for your truck. SnoWay has the 7' 6" 22 Series plow. With down pressure, it would be a very nice plow for your truck, but is a well-built plow. That being said, the question needs to be asked, "Is there a SnoWay dealer near you?" Good luck.

    I'd look at a Boss Sport Duty or Standard Duty 7'6" or Snowdogg MD75. That truck needs at least a 7'6" plow. Don't bother with the Blizzard 720, its too small.

    A 7.5' Fisher SD would work good on your truck IMO. But if your not interested in Fisher you should get a 7.5 Boss Standard Duty IMO.

    Since you can't get a Fisher I would recomend a 7.5' Boss.

    no one said snow way? I put a 26 series 7'6" with downpressure on my avalanche and love it. I mainly check and clean up sites + 2" plows. it scapes better than anything else I got. only bummer service sucks here no good dealers. oh yeah best part it only weighs in at like 350# so its easy on my air ride suspension
