    I am considering purchasing a plow to fit a 1986 half ton Suburban. What are some of the things to look for in a plow and what other necessary equipment is necessary to start a plowing business? All ideas/suggestions appreciated.

    your gonna want a 7.5ft snowplow. you should look into meyer and sno-way snowplows. you will need a caution light or strobe lights while plowing. also you must get insurance. be sure to make contractes for all of your accounts:)

    It's time to use the old Search feature , it is a valuable tool, almost any question has already been answered. There is so much good info to digest here before you would ever have to type a letter.

    One of our guys is running a Suburban - Primer black; and it is unstoppable! Very tank like.... Have fun and welcome! - michael

    I was going to send you to the FAQ section but it's GONE!

    But I used the SEARCH and found out why; so once again Good Luck!

    Look at all the plows.
    Determine what kind of plowing you will be doing. driveways,parking lots etc.
    Suburban can handle a big plow. Like a Blizzard 810
    Don.t listen to biased owners.
    Decide for yourself.
    A lot of companys make good reliable plows.
