    For non commercial homeowner plow with the choice of Myers, Boss, or Snow Way for a 03 GMC 1500 YUKON; what would be the best one to get?

    Snoway has a nice light plow for that half ton. But everyone has their favorites. You may want to look into Snow Dogg plows for what you need it for as well.

    Snoway, if only for the down pressure.

    They also offer a hydraulically controlled wings for the 1/2 tons.

    ^^^ that.

    well, sort-of.

    The biggest problem I've observed with meyer plows, is in the blade construction. Of the meyer plows I've owned, both use bent angle iron as the vertical ribs, with the OPEN side facing the skin. The problem with this is that you end up with an unsealed, but inaccessible cavity between three faces of mild steel. Now it isn't hard to imagine what happens with this --- RUST. MASSIVE rust.

    What you should be looking for on ANY plow, is that it doesn't have any unsealed, inaccessible cavities for rust to take hold of. If it has accessible cavities where you can get at with a paint brush, or cavities are TOTALLY sealed so that there is no way water can get into them, then you're ok.
