    Hey everyone, im new to the world of plowing and was curious on your feedback. I have a F350 i plan on plowing with but have no idea what kind/size of plow to get. I have mostly residential accounts, only a handful of commercial. What do you guys recommend for a beginner? Vee or Straight blade? Boss, Western, Blizzard, Snow-way? Any bit of advice will be appreciated. And anything on salters to. Thanks

    If the truck has single rear wheels, i would go with a boss 8.2 v-blade, saves time plowing, and is easy to put on and off, i use sno-x salters, they seen to work the best, they have one that swings away so you can load a pallet of salt with a fork truck, instead of one bag at a time, if your truck is a dual wheel you have to go with a 9' or larger plow or the tires will be doing plowing, hope this helps

    Dealer support and service is MORE important then brand.
    I prefer Menards for all my "plywood" needs....lmao
