• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

I Have owned 2 PSD and I just ordered my 3rd (2001 Crewcab lariet) The Ford (International) have a great track record in my book. I have had no problems with the motors. Remember to change the tranny fluid often. The mileage is great for towing/plowing compared to a gasser and you will get most of the money back when you trade it in or sell it. I looked at the Duramax (Chevy) and have heard good things but they are hard to find So i have chosen to stick with what I have had good luck with. My father owns a large construction compay and he has had about 50-60 Psd in the last few years. We have never had any real problems with any of them. Remeber what I said about the Transmissions. also make shure that your air+fuel filters are changed often. They seem to get real crappy Mileage if they start to get dirty.

ENZOFORZA, I am looking at getting a manual transmission. Are you saying to change the fluid often in a manual or are you referring to an automatic?
