    So first let me say Hi. I have been a member for a long time just never posted always reading tho. I have a 03 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel quad cab short bed that I am ready to put a plow on. So I went to the closest dealer today about 30 miles away set on buying a Meyer plow and found Hiniker today. So quest for input is this. I got three quotes today for three different plows and want to know which one you would prefer and the pro and cons of your thoughts. I am only doing small residential drives and no a lot of them either. They are all complete units installed.

    Meyer-Lot Pro 7.5' steel straight blade for $5,117.13
    Hiniker 7.5' HD steel straight blade for $4646.25
    Hiniker 8' High performance Black poly poly for $5,117.13

    I am already leaning towards one and I think you thoughts will confirm my thought on which one I should buy just on cost alone for the product that I would be getting. What do you guys think of the prices and I am considering installing it myself to save $500.00

    The 8 ft Hiniker poly is the way you want to go. The dependibility of the hydraulics and electrical will surpass that of the Meyer. The split trip edge offers much smoother plowing in most conditions. Finally, my poly is four years old. Without any treatment of the moldboard the snow still rolls off it like no other plow I have ever used.

    If you can spend some xtra money by a hiniker c plow. Once you use it, you wont want another kind.

    C plow is worth the extra if you can swing it, if you wanna drive a little, I know of a deal.

    PGW0321321 - What is considered a little drive? I am looking to go with the Scoop Plow for my F350. I have been talking to Rondo Ent in Sycamore, but I am willing to travel for a better price.

    I didn't buy my cplow from him, I heard about this place after I bought mine from another guy, nor do I get any commission, but he has the best prices around.

    Give me a call I will make a good deal on one 8 foot c-plow in stock ready to go or I have some 8 foot steel straights will make a heck of a deal on also. The c-plow is worth its weight in gold we sell about 3-4 of them a year and most are to guys who ran their buddies the year before. Thanks and everyone have a great and happy holidays!!!

    I also have a 9 foot scoop plow ready to go also that works good on the Ford F-350.
