    That blade looks like a real creampuff. Why the need for the additional springs?

    Exactly. Why spend $5000 on a plow when a $800 dollar one will make the same money?

    Those of us who are busy buy new plows. If we buy some old beater, it takes some time/$$ to fix up, time/$$ that I could have made on another site. Ill keep buying my new plows and having a warranty. Lots less to go wrong as well.
    Not to mention, clients dont want to see some rust bucket hacking away at their property.

    How busy are you Morrissey? :D That doesn't look like a rust bucket plow at all.

    wow that a pretty quick turn around. Looks clean and nothing like a rust bucket to me. I agree buying new plows is a complete wast of money. Usually you can buy a perfectly good used plow for thousands less the new or buy one for a few hundred and fix to make as reliable as a brand new plow for well under 2 grand. If your making crazy amounts of money and able to buy new plows imagine how much money you'll make buying used plows? To each their own i guess.
