    Those fords

    I just love the way the ford Super Duties look. They look so beefy and tough.

    The ford F150s don't do a thing for me, though.

    Nice truck but I believe it is time for a new plow.

    That plow does not project much of a image though on a newer truck
  9. Hey Tarkus,
    Just to let you know, It really doesn't matter what the plow looks like. IF it pushes snow, thats all that matters. Also, I know Paul and he's been working on getting a setup for his rig. I'm also sure that he just put it on because of the recent snowfall we had around here. WHO CARES WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE>? I'm sure your plow doesn't look BRAND NEW, OH, that is if you even HAVE a snowplow :rolleyes:

    Don't get on here and cut down a new guy with a plow. He's doing everything just right in my book if you ever talked to him. :nono:

    I am not downing him but it is a contrast in appearance. Even a good coat of paint can help too. Yes a old plow can be servicable but you want to also look the part when you are trying to sell yourself to someone because client might be sizing you up to. If two cabs are setting in the lot, one that look beat and the other nice looking, which one are you going to choose same with grass cutting do you want a guy that his equipment looks beat or someone that his stuff at least appears in good order and fairly new? Just think about that a bit.

    Paul's plow might need a paint job but BIG DEAL. :rolleyes: How does that reflect on someone's truck? If someone had a plow that didn't have a scratch or spot of rust on it, I would say that it was either brand new or they didn't plow snow at all. Paul is my friend and I've got his back. He worked long and hard to get his plow put on and it looks just fine to me. :cool:

    I could care less what the plow looks like, I am particularly jealous of the truck. Some day I will have a Ford Super Duty. Plus when you are pushing a lot of snow no one can really see the plow anyways. All they can see is that the snow is being moved out of there way. And as long as its making you money who cares.

    The good thing about Razorman's plow is it's paid for. Too many contractors get focused on looking the part and it puts them in the poor house. (making payments on everything) I always look to buy used snow plows before new. Looks like a wise choice to me Razorman

    My old Meyer paid for itself 100x's over

    if it pushes snow without leaking and gets you home to the paycheck, its good to go!

    I bet if you did put a coat of paint on it it would snow before it is dry.
    1qt. Meyers snowflow paint $8.95 and a through away brush. it flowes out over night and takes 72 hours to dry at 70 degrees. It would never dry before it snows but if that is what it takes to make it snow then go for it.

    By the way great truck, you made the right choice. and thet blade could make you a million dollars over the next 5 years.

    It is a nice looking truck.

    Personally I like to keep the image of my equipment up. Its not perfect but its not beat looking either. I use a five-dollar can of rust paint on a dollar store paint brush before the season and the plow looks great/good/down to ok all winter :D (note the degrading condition of the cheap paint)

    Thats all I'd do--take about half an hour b/c it doesn't need to be perfect. I also get a spraybomb of the same paint to touch up around brackets and such.

    If image doesn't mean anything to you, then who cares? Run'er till she drops.... lol
