    I will try to keep is short. I grew the past couple years. Running a partially resto red f250 and a boss super duty 7.5 . My wife was running her jeep cherokee with an old 7.5 meyer but the mount was so heavy and I wanted dp. I purchased 2 sno way 25d's and a 24d for 2400. Have a shot at another 24 for 1000. I am putting one of these on my 87 toyota pickup. I do 6 hard parking lots (lots of cars!) a couple complexes win some road but mostly drives (about 250 of them), and some resident drives. I was gonna upgrade the f250 to a v blade but I am leaning toward the three trucks with a spare plow and box ends on the plows. The yota could be parked at one of my complexes overnight. I am torn between a super duty v blade feeling. Like a major upgrade over 4 sno ways, but the snow ways all have dp and my 2 smaller vehicles are a major asset with all the drives I do. This way any of my 3 vehicles could take any plow (one of the 25d's is an 8ft) and I have one whole back up vehicle. Thoughts?

    Thanks for all the help I have received here. Especially to bashed who will be getting a call for some parts !

    I should mention the only things really holding me back are A: will the sno ways hold up (I understand this is a matter of opinion) andB: parts seem to be getting hard to come by and expensive for my older 24/25 series units. I would like to get 2-3 more seasons (no more) out of these 3-4 plows. After that my level of business dictates at that point I should strongly consider replacing them, because I want my trucks to be interchancheable with all my plows.
