    I'm late to getting the new plow this year :( I've tried to gauge from the posts here which band of plow most Dodge owners use but its a tad hard to determine. So, let me ask:

    For an '05 Dodge 2500 CTD, and for residential plowing only, what is the best brand to go with?

    I have an 8'6" western on my 05 2500 QC CTD.

    I wouldn't want anything less for commercial. However, for residential, it could be a bit large. However, I have a fairly narrow drive and I plow it just fine.

    For the most part I would go with what your local dealer carries. I went with western because my dealer had interest free financing.

    I would go with a Boss 7'6" or 8'. I think anything bigger than that will be a pain. If you really wanna go fancy for that Dodge, get a Boss trip-edge.

    It depends on the area- different localities will have a proliferation of a certain brand of plow because there is a plow dealer/ truck dealer business agreement or there is a limited number of makes for plow dealers in the given area.

    My immediate local is only a Fisher dealer but in a half hour I can be to a Curtis dealer, Western dealer, or a couple others- 1 hour plus to a Blizzard dealer so there are no Blizzards near me but lots of Fishers and several Westerns and Curtis'.

    I have only Fishers personally.

    For residential plowing only i dont think you need a blizzard 810.I would go with anything 8 foot... fisher ,western, boss all good.

    Two major things to think about:

    Dealer support.. which is closest? which dealers stock the most parts just incase something does go wrong.You dont want a plow that takes a long time to be repaired because the dealer is so far away.

    Trip edge or Full trip... We get a lof of heavy wet snow here i prefer a Trip edge plow. I use Fisher and love it... My father just got a Boss Trip edge but it hasnt really been tested yet(although im pretty sure it will be fine)
