    Hi I am plowing my own driveway which is about 100 feet plus the yard which is pretty big with a 91 S 10 it has an old fisher 6 foot 6 inch plow on it and is pretty heavy I have to put a load of wood on the back to get rear wheel traction but it plows very well it won't move a mountain but will do a good job if you keep at it I would get the lightest but strongest plow I could don't overlook used gear if you can get a good deal on it and make sure the mounts will fit your truck sometimes the mounts cost more than the plow!! I got some good parts from an outfit in Maine that someone posted here they have lots of used plow parts for sale.

    Why not post this in the New To industry forum, which is more appropriate to you're questions, since you're not looking for information about plowing your own driveway....

    It sounds llike you have alot of work. I would go for the Blizzard, or a Fisher, but I would steer clear of the "homeowner" varieties. They are made to do 1 driveway per event. Good luck.
