    Hello, Im a college student and was recently given a '97 GMC with a Western Snowplow. When I picked it up, the plow and truck worked flawlessly with no issues.

I'm pretty sure I need a big self-propelled one; I have a lot of area to cover, somewhat steep and rough. I'm thinking an ancient, ugly Ariens might be a good match for me. Anyway...
