    Both are excellent. I brought it 3 yr ago for my own house and do a few other local then help out the bigger
    When I'm done. I got salter after the 1st big storm this year after throwing 700 lbs by bucket. I mounted it to tire carrier so it swings away. It holds 4 bags and spreads both cc and bagged rock just as good as the bigger ones. Only thing more versatile is a skidsteer in tight spots. Only reason I'm thinking of selling is because I want one car, tired of switching all my veal from one vehicle to another. I'm getting an avalanche and will put the 7.5 fisher SD on it.

    Unfortunately I don't have any experience with the pure hydraulic lift plows, but on the Western site, one benefit they tout about their chain lift plows is that if in the 'unlikely' event that the hydraulics fail or freeze, you can plow the blade up into a drift, then short-chain it (shorten the chain and wrap it around the lift bar) and make it back to the shop. Hydraulics would stand ya. I think that would be more critical to the larger outfits that do a lot of plowing. I don't know if that includes you or not. I guess if there isn't a chain, it would be one less thing to break. Sorry that's all I can come up with. Good luck with your decision.
