    I have a Ford Ranger, I would like to plow my home and maybe a few homes around the area. I am currently looking at Fisher Homesteader, Boss, and Meyer, in the same entry level systems. I want to buy new, I don't think I have enough experience to buy used.
    Where is good place to purchase in RI.
    By just visiting youtube, the Boss seams really nice. Meyer seams light weight, more for home use. Fisher not as sturdy as Boss. If you have any suggestions I would appreciate it.

    Just my two cents, if you are only going to be doing a few houses go used and save the cost of new. If you are planning on expanding then you will need to go up to a bigger truck and an 8 foot blade, but for what you are planning I would buy used.

    You should go with The Boos Sport Duty. You also might want to look into Snow Dogg.

    Agreed. Ask your local plow dealer about a used plow. Lots of dealers sell and install used plows. Just a thought.
