    I have an extra truck I'm putting together and I have a Meyer EZ mount setup for it with the E60 and 7.5' plow. I have used Meyer in the past and had good luck. I also have a Sno-way 7.5'(not sure what series). Never owned Sno-way. Both are a few years old, but in good shape. I like the idea of the down pressure from Sno-way, we do a few drives, but mostly parking lots. Are parts similar in price for the two brands? Anything to look for on the Sno-way?

    I use a Meyer and love it. I looked into a sno-way this year and wasn't overly impressed with the hydraulic power of it when it was demonstrated to me. When I started doing more research about it I found the same issue of the plow going down slowly or up slowly. I am wanting to find someone around me this season that uses one to get a better look at it. So I would say stick with the trusty Meyer IMO.Thumbs Up

    Snoway parts are expenive but their plows are reliable. I would set up the snoway. A have a 9' ht & an 8' 29. Both plows have worked well for me!

    What year truck? what model plows? I would tell you to go with the snoway but you need to be sure they still make a mount for your truck. The older three pin models mounts can be a issue. Same with the Meyer EZ classic. they are not supporting mounts for newer trucks.

    A snoway in good condition is faster and more reliable than the Meyer.
