    Thinking about getting a plow for my older drw dump. F-350 2x4 found a western cable operated with a northern plow blade. Guy says plows great the truck fell apart around the plow. Everything is there light rust 50% cutting edge. Its about an hour away so I was hoping to get some more imput before going. I only plow at 4 places plus my own not really any hills but my drive way! Thanks

    Under $500 and even then "I" would skip. Those things are wrist killers!

    you need a 8.5 or a nine to plow with a 2wd dump. it needs to be wide enough to clear the path for the tires. either way i wouldnt give more than 300-500 depending on the condition.

    Well thats about what I was thinking 3-500. I was either going to pull my outside dual off or get some wings for it. A lot of guys buy me pull the duals off looks kinda wierd but I guess it works. As far as reliabilty I understand that they are pretty good? I think im gonna wait a week and see if he goes down a little on price he said 750.00 obo. I dont want to insult the guy with a low ball. But It is off the truck and im going on word it works great I not to much for that. Thanks for the Replys
