    Selling my 97 F-150 and MT plow to my Dad and looking at a new plow for my 2004 F-150. I now only plow my driveway, which is about 1 mile long and around my buildings. No commercial plowing at all.

    I was looking at the 22 as its quite a bit lighter, and at only 2" shorter than my MT seems like it should work fine. However a local dealer recommended the 26 model, which weighs about the same as my MT. I think the 22 would cost about $400 less.

    Anyone have any advice over which model would be better in this application?

    I see it this way, If you need a bigger plow at any point, it might be cheaper now to go with the 26" instead of having to try to sell the 22" and upgrade or try to add wings to the 22" which is not a great option either.

    Thats my 2 cents:salute:

    You will need to go with the 26 series model as we do not produce a 22 series mounting kit for the F150. If you are looking to save some weight you could go with the ST series with a 90" blade. There is a promo currently running on this model through http://www.plowsunlimited.com .

    Go with the 26 it's a better match then an ST. Well worth the four bills.
    The ST on that truck would be like using a Kenworth to tow a jet ski. :rolleyes:

    Go with the Snoway 26. Truck drops about 1", Light weight. Plus the people in town will wonder where you found wonder woman’s invisible plow....HA :nod:

    go with the 26 w/ downpressure & wireless remote. good setup. you can have a ball with the wireless with your friends, I put my control in my pocket and had them believing that I had a VAC ( voice activated plow).

    Stood in the local Coffee stop operating the plow, waited to a few people were watching the plow move on an empty truck. Then I put the control in my pocket and started to walk to the truck. Halfway across the lot I hollered for my dog. When she stuck her head out the driver's window I said "how many times have i told you not to mess with the plow, now move over, it's my turn to drive!" LOL:jester:

    Too new to PM. Hey Basher...what are your Snoway prices? I can't really get away with personal phone calls at work. I can get away with this though;) ! Just curious. Oh, and do you sell any used plows? Thanks
