    Hey guys I am new to the snow plow world but not the snow removal world,ever since I was 10 years old I've been running a small time shoveling operation for neighbors. next year I will hopefully buying a plow and expanding my buisness and I have 3 trucks in mind to plow with and need to figure out which 1 would be my best bet.

    1. 2007 jeep grand Cherokee
    2. 2004 chevy suburban
    3. 2007 chevy tahoe

    Im not sure which truck i should use as my main plow truck. I am mainly if not only going to be doing residential properties but am hoping on taking on as many jobs as i can get. If anyone would be helpful enough to help me out with what plow truck i should use and what plow i should buy that would be great.

    Tahoe,forget the GC It is more of a car than truck.The sub would be fine but the tahoe will be easier to turn.

    Tahoe with a Fisher SD or HT, or Boss Sport Duty or Western HTS or Midweight

    Definitely the Tahoe. You could run a SnowDogg MD75 Possibly a HD plow if you beef up the front end. The HD would be nice for larger lots, I run the MD on my truck and it does the job. Just takes a lil longer. Good luck!

    Thanks guys I really like the fisher, western and BOSS plows. if i went with the Tahoe for plowing upwards of 50 residential drives would i be better off with a v plow or just a standard HD OR MD

    I agree with the earlier posts tahoe is the way to go not as long as the tahoe and would be much easier to get into tight areas then the suburban.As far as plows I would go with a fisher mm2 SD well built plow and I've heard nothing but good things about them.Here is a thread of what other guys think about them:

    Tahoe can't take a V-plow or an HD.

    If you are going to do only driveways get a Jeep wrangler with a 7 1/2 plow It will run circles around a PU in driveway productivity.
