    I'm new to the site and i'm buying a truck over winter... Chevy/gmc 1500 4x4... What brand is most common or the best. my two closest dealers supply boss,meyers,sno-way, and i think maybe curtis. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    If those are your 4 choices, I would go in this order: Boss, Snoway, Curtis, and then find another dealer for something else.

    Yeah i really like the boss's. My neighbor has an f-250 super duty with a boss super duty straight blade. I swear it's the easiest to line up and it hitches up so quick!

    of course you do you work for snoway..
    Just for a change i think you should recommend a boss or a fisher.

    both very nice plows.
    and the headgear looks good on them. :jester::p

    I really haven't looked at prices considering i don't have a truck. I'll be plowin mostly residential...maybe some restaurant or small biz parking lots. And i just looked... my dealer also carries western.

    One thing I've noticed is Westerns and Boss's seem to hold up the best finish wise. I've seen others rust pretty bad in the course of a year. A point to consider when it comes to resale.

    Maybe a Boss, but as for Fisher, I sold my boat and I shudder at the thought of DD wiring:eek::nono::D:jester:

    Haha true. I was prolly going to go the poly route anyway to cut down on weight.

    That only works if you purchase a Snoway. The other brands poly plows are HEAVIER than their same comparable steel plow.

    Well then Sno-Way should be high on your list to consider as competitive poly plows are actually heavier than their steel models of comparable size.

    yeh like B&B said, the poly isnt much lighter, and even then, 100 pounds isnt much of a difference.
