    I am fairly new to the industry. I have plowed for a buddy using Wesstern plows in the past. But now I would like to plow as a sub for him using my 08 Chev 1500 crew cab. I lease the truck for my company so am pretty much stuck with the 1500 for the next 2 yrs. Because of this I found the new HT 7.5 by fisher seems like the toughest plow available for 1/2 ton. Anyone have any thoughts .

    Sno-Way would be my first choice for that truck. Lightweight, downpressure, proven track record.

    I personaly think the Fisher HT would be the best plow for your truck.

    He's talking about a GMT900. Coil springs and lighter frame than the GMT800s

    Thanks. Now I just need to find a dealer closest to Long Island with good pricing. Dejana Truck body sells them here, but only have heard bad things about that company. Open to any suggestions of dealers within 200 miles of Manorville NY
