    I have plowed snow for the last 6 years with a k-5 blazer mounted with a western 7.5ft. unimount. I only plowed one parking lot and a few driveways. I sold it this past spring and now we are getting the most snow here (southeast wisconsin)in a long time! I am wanting to plow again but can't afford to spend too much. I have a 1994 gmc s-15 jimmy now wuold my money be better spent on a new meyer plow for the jimmy or should I spend the $2800 on a truck with a plow already on it? I fear more down time than plow time with the old plow truck. I also fear the jimmy to be too light duty or the blade too small. Anyone out there have any recomendations?

    Go with a SnoWay brand plow and be careful the Jimmy will be ablw to do it.
