    Homeowners Plow

    You will not be sorry for putiing a 7Ft plow on your truck
    Hiniker has the best plow going
    I own a 8ft poly trip edge and would not trade it in on any else's plow
    This is a great plow

    Hiniker makes a nice plow, I've run one on a 2500 for 3yrs now haven't had any problems with it, yet.. Other than bending up the kick stand.. Why does everyone bend them up??

    I wouldn't hesitate to get another Hiniker plow.
    How much are they asking for it?

    Put On 7' Set Up Last Winter ( Old Thread) And Found It Did Not Have Enough Weight To Scrape Well, And Tripped Alot. I Returned To Dealer And Installed The 7.5' Plow On Truck. Hiniker Uses The Same Mount Set Up For The 7,7.5,&8' Plows And I Was Able To Just Swap Out The Plow. We Only Had One Snow Since But The 7.5' Seemed To Work Quite Well. They Are Real Easy To Get On & Off And I Think I Will Be Happy With It.

    Home Owner Plow

    Hiniker has made remarkable strides with the homeowners plow
    We have sold 2 so far this year, they have incorporated some new and great ideas for ease in setting the plow for taking it off, I highly recommend this plow, I have a 8' poly trip edge and the homeowners is 1/2 the weight and still has the same quality of a commercial plow.
    Any questions contact Eding Tractor Sales.
    We are a Hiniker Plow Dealer and Service
    I am just an employee and bought mine last year and I love the plow

    You Bettcha it is

    Call any HINIKER dealer in the U.P. of Michigan and ask them. My God, who would
    know better, I mean they push more snow in one day than most others push in an
    entire season. All the commercial plows in the U.P. seem to be boss, don't ask me
    why, HINIKER puts out the best constructed plow on the planet.

    Oh, and yes, I just happened to call 3 dealers in the U.P. on tuesday, and also
    one in boyne fall, mich. Results were all the same HINIKER and some of them
    used to sell boss. But I also called other states and researched in that way, it was still

    I just got my 700 series and Im putting it together tonight, damn thing is built like a tank
    for a homeowner plow has the same mount, harness and pump as there 7.5 an 8' straight blade plows, I looked at the snoway,fisher and western in the homeowner verisons and was not impressed at the pump sizes or hyd cylinder sizes.

    Can I put one of these Hiniker 7' on my 1999 Jeep Cherokee?

    I dont see why not its about 450lbs complete, its a light duty plow and not for commercial use. If your just doing your driveway or a few friends its perfect. It will trip easier then the commecial plows but not as bad as the western/fisher homeowner plows

    so the 700 would be a bad choice for a jeep used on 40 driveways

    I dont know, how deep is your snow, I actually feel my plow is more of a medium duty 6 steel ribs, X braced frame plow and A frame, 3/8" x 6' steel cutting edge,plow the pump controls & mounts are the same on the steel 7.5' and 8'
    if your jeep can handle get the steel 7.5 is 600+ lbs other than that.
    have you checked Snoway? Western midweight. If your dealing with huge snowfall and and plan on beating on the plow maybe you need something bigger.
    I would wait till some of the experts chime in.

    The plow weighs 450 lbs, and it is a 7 ft. plow, not a 7.5 ft.

    yes I said above its 450lbs who said it was 7.5? I said that it uses the same mounts as the 7.5' 8' 600lb+.... you can actually upgrade to the steel 7.5' or 8' straight blades without doing a thing

    Well, southern MN gets all different kinds of snow, but if the storm is big, I would probably plow twice, so I don't beat on our Jeep very much. I asked a local welding shop who sells Hiniker, he said probably $3,000 or less for 7' Homeowner plow. I am just torn between getting a plow on the Jeep or getting a small skid steer.
