    I am wanting to start up my own little operation. I have 250 4X2. I know.....

    Can this still work, with some added weight in the back?

    Where is a good place to get used plow equipment?

    Thanks in advance.....great site you guys have,

    I've had 4 wheel drives stuck before. What are you going todo when its 3am and you get stuck and you still have places to get open before 7. Two wheel drive plow trucks are usually reserved for street applications. And are on larger trucks.

    Even with weight in the back, your asking for trouble plowing with a 2 wheel drive.
    You need a 4x4

    i've been plowing since 1964 , you most have 4 wheel drive to it without any major problems, a 2x4 is a waste of money and your time. i've been stuck with 4 wheel more then 1 time. its just a lot easier with a 4x4. small drives and lots i like a jeep cj. for larger ones my f150 just does the job but its not stock either.
