Just curious on the plauge of problems statement. Can you explain this to me? I have worked here for 17 years and do not know of what you speak. Early releases of which products in particular.baldplowguy;473924 said:I considered a Sno-way after reading all the reccomendations from folks on this site but after further research found that they are very expensive and early releases were plauged with problems.

What you mention here affected part of a production run last season. To the best of my knowledge all customers that were affected have been taken care. The issue was addressed prior to production this season. As far as my response being fast, I care about our products, customers, and potential new customers. I spent alot of time here. :waving:baldplowguy;473981 said:That was fast!!!! Sno-way 22 series...bell crank????
Not sure what first post has to do with it but as to your question, I found this on this site:
and a yahoo search on the problem outlined in this thread will list this and other issues as well...
Thanks for not looking to be confrontational.
I have checked them out and none of the smaller models (ST, MT, 22, 26) which would be suited for Jeeps, say they are for commercial use.toby4492;473470 said:http://www.snoway.com
5 year commercial structural warranty on all our plow models. wesport
Happy New Year:waving:
In your original post you gave a broad assessment of "plagued with problems" without giving an example of what you meant. Now that you have let me know, I believe I have given you the appropriate answer.baldplowguy;473998 said:"Just curious on the plauge of problems statement. Can you explain this to me?

So after 17 years you did know of what I spoke?
one of the reasons i chose to sell Snoway is their reliability.baldplowguy;473924 said:I considered a Sno-way after reading all the reccomendations from folks on this site but after further research found that they are very expensive
Not when you compare apples to apples. Price one with wired control and gravity drop like everybody else offers. We sell a very competitively priced product. We have installed the 22 on the 07 Wrangler and it was an excellent fit;
and early releases were plauged with problems.
I'm a dealer I do service and warranty. I don't understand what plague of problems your referring to. The bellcrank issue has never effected one of my customers. We do stock one just in case at Steve in tech advice, but have never needed it.
Although the 5 year warranty they offer is nice it isn't worth much at 3 am in a blizzard!!! I like many of their high tech features though.
I have to call all the guys using the 22 series commercially and tell them to stop. Tell them "baldplowguy" said NO you be plagued with problems. Ignore the last 3 or 4 years of trouble free plowing..baldplowguy;474161 said:basher,
Did you not read the link I posted above? There are others as well...
Gosh I guess I was stupid, one problem post, you know there are others. Unfortunately unlike the other plows (which are perfect) snoway has occasional problems.
Apples to apples - bluetooth to bluetooth... What about the plow going haywire due to electrical interference? Granted it has only happened a few times but in this business that means lost revenue - I can't take that chance.
So buy the wired control, that's what you're used to anyway
Cut wires, zip ties, leaking fittings, parts hitting the light brace, knocking the paint off, rusting, dealer invented "retrofits," customers not being notified of a potential issue, lawyers. Please....
Yes every problem plagued every purchaser, they are all unhappy. 11,000+ units last year and they're all "plagued with problems"
Snoway has its place I am sure. If I needed a personal use plow or just did a few driveways here and there I would consider one. I admire their high tech approach and willingness to innovate - the downpressure concept is amazing! Their ISO certification and precision manufacturing motivations as well as their many patents will undoubtedly lead to better products for all. Product innovators as with all pioneers take risks. Some features work some don't. Clearly some bugs need to be worked out of the 22 series.
Read complete threads, Snoway stands behind their products, every one of those customers had their problem solved satisfactorily. Send them PMs when you've been on the site long enough to use the Private Message feature, I'm sure they will try to sell you a Snoway.
My two F-250's with Western Pro Plows have truly been bullet proof. I only recently purchased the Wrangler to do cleanup - jump up on sidewalks - and monitor progress etc. My work is strictly commercial and the snowway plow recommended for the Wrangler is not commercially rated? Right?
Correct the Wrangler is not rated for commercial work

Don't worry ppandr, no skin off my nose. I've been around a long time and plan on being here a while longer. :waving:ppandr;474656 said:I will say that I am turned off by the resident (plowsite) salesman plugging any chance he gets.
If I was doing anything here that was considered wrong by the mods my threads and posts would be deleted just as quickly if not quicker than any other user of this site. If you don't like my posts, here's an idea.............................don't read them.
Nothing against TOM, he might even be a really good guy. I'm sure the guys here that use Snoway products may get help from him and we should thank him for such.
Yes I do help Sno-Way owners as much as I can and do receive thanks from them. Funny thing is I also receive many PM from owners of competitive products looking for additional information on Sno-Way because of something they read in posts that I have made. Many just like you own DD products and are looking to make the change to Sno-Way.
TOM, don't take everything we say so personally.
