    Looking for input on Plow setup

    OK guys i just bought a used truck with a meyer poly plow on it. Not sure what model (how do you know). For the price i paid the person it doesn't really matter, but for replacement parts.For 2 grand for a 95 GMC 2500HD no rust low miles(truck was used only to plow drive) and fully loaded i couldn't refuse. Any way i do only commercial snow removal and want to know how well this plow is going to hold up or should i throw a western pro on it. all my other trucks run westerns

    I have 2 meyers I use for commercial and I have no complaints. As far as model goes the pump is pretty easy to figure out and the blade you will be able to tell by how many trip springs it has, and how many braces are behind the mold board (ST Standard Duty have 3 trip springs and 4 braces, C Commercial Duty's have 4 trip springs and 6 braces). I have a Standard Duty and a Commercial, I like both pretty much equally but the Commercial is by far heavier so it will scrap down to the pavement a lot better.

    If it's the 8' poly on the '95 GMC in your signature it would be a CP-8. Meyer doesn't make a standard (ST) over 7.5 so it would be a commercial series poly..

    Thanks for the info. I do know that it has 4 trip springs but didn't look to see the bracing. Also do they make a handheld controller

    Meyer does make a hand held controller. But if you currently have the twin toggles or the single lever slick stick, you may want to just keep what you have for reliability reasons. Many guys find that the HH aren't all that reliable.

    I have a c8 and it will do commercial just fine but I would just keep an eye on your pivot points they wear real fast with a lot of heavy plowing. I know I will never buy a meyers for commercial plowing again. Just my 2 cents :waving:
