    Hey Gang,
    I just started pushing this winter with a 7-6' western pro w/wings, mounted on a Ford F-250 ex-cab V-10...and have a few questions..

    :dizzy: What is the correct plow posistion for driving on roadways??

    :gunsfiring: What is the best bang for the buck on tailgate spreaders??:gunsfiring:

    personally i like to have the plow angled to the drivers side so its closer to the truck with passing cars. as for a tailgate snow ex makes a nice one they all almost do the same thing to me anymore theyre just trash cans with motors

    welcome to plow site :waving:

    Hi I angle the blade to the passengers side (right).
    1) If you get hit by an oncoming ass H*** (you know the kind of guy that Judges his clearance by your head lights, only to find out that your plow is wider than your lights), the extended hydraulic ram on the drivers side will act as a cushion.
    2) nothing will suck you off the road ( and in New England into a tree or stone wall) Faster than having a plow that is angled left and catches a snow bank on the right.

    X-rated springs


    From what my Ford Tech friends have told me, the X rated springs are 6,000lbs. Look on the sticker on the driver's side door jam and look for Front Axle GAWR. Mine says 5200 - I have the V-rated springs. Yours will probably say 6000. Hope this helps!
