    If its a quality product that stands up to wear and abuse its used by someone here on plowsite. No one really runs those homeowner plows like snowbear on here. When you plow snow for a living your plow has to be there for you 24hrs for days straight during a storm. So like I said if its rugged and strong then someone here uses it for sure. Theres guys here running Fisher, Meyer, Western, Snoway, Curtis, Pathfinder, Diamond, Hiniker, Blizzard, and many other reliable durable brands.

    I have and always will be running a Fisher plow. :D

    Fisher plows are very popular around here. It is rare see Western and Boss plow but I did saw a few Sno-Way plows. Still some pockets of old Meyer plows popping around here. :rolleyes:

    It doesn't snow in cyberspace (or at least when it does it never seems to accumulate), so nobody has to use a plow here. :D

    In the real world we run mostly Meyer, but only because that's what came on the trucks. If I were ordering a new one I'd definitely be comparing all the major brands, at least the ones with dealers within a reasonable distance.

    A few years back I went into a BJ's wholesale club and they were selling a plow for $999.99, It might of been a snow bear of something, didn't really remember the name.Anyway you had to manually angle the plow in which direction you wanted to push the snow.Talk about a piece of crap.
    I'm sure this thing was made so crappy and if you needed parts for it, it most likely would be the biggest head ache to find parts.

    I also seen advertised this push shovel that you can fit on a car, I think it was like $300.00.Like a car would actually be able to push the snow, LOL.It is amazing at the gimmicks companies will try to sell out there.

    On another note, last year I saw the coolest thing, many of you probably know about it but i certainly didn't.My brother in law is a mechanic and they had an ambulance in the shop for some repairs.Anyway they had it up on a lift and the ambulance had this automatic control system that throw tire chains on the rear wheels and took it off while the vehicle was in motion, such a cool idea.he told me that was a very expensive thing to have on a vehicle.
    I never knew they made something like that so thats why I was fascinated with it.

    About the snow chains

    It has an automatic arm track that swings the chains onto the tire and can also retract the chains while the vehicle is in motion.Pretty awesome.My brother in law said it might cost well into 20 thou plus for that equipment.

    More than likely they were the "On Spot" brand,they are on tons of Emergency vehicles as well as school buses,they are well under $3000 installed though:confused: so i'm not sure about that $20k figure?
