    Anyone ever plow with a truck like these. I have a friend that has 4 of them and he said I can have one of them if I wanna try to plow with it. I would try this next year obviously as I am goin to try to pick up a few big trucking warehouses. I would prolly put a 10-12ft plow on it. The truck weights around 12000#'s. I know it has the power to push it but was just wondering if anyone else had some insight.

    They are identical to this

    I would find a big V box to put on the back of it for both salting as well as weight.

    I plow with a Mitsu 18000 gvw cab over, 2 w-drive and I love the truck. I have a 10' v-box and a 9' Western. This truck has pushed as well as anything I've run.

    You'll probably have to fab a mount for it. But otherwise I'd bet with enough weight it's an animal.

    Cab overs are great for plowing. I used to own a UD 1800 with a 9' Boss and 4yd spreader, and it would not only push anything, but could turn sharper than any puck ups we have. Like stated, you'd most likely have to fabricate a mount for it, and make sure you have a plow with removable headgear as well.
