    Hey Guys,

    So yesterday i went up to Madison Wisconsin to pick up my new HTS plow. i was so excited to go get it. i didnt have them install cuz a friend and i are going to put it on and it will save me some green. but i got it all complete for $3700 plus tax so it was $3999. Did i get a good price? But i got some extras to go with it. back drag edge, and Madison Truck Equipment Custom Snow Flap. So sometime soon im going to put it all together, and ill post more pics.

    yeah i hope so, well i have 10 places so far total, with two being two small commercial lots the rest are driveways. I dont think that is bad for my first year and i had a late start on contracts too.

    I am very interested to hear how the plow works and holds up. I have been bouncing around the idea of getting the HTS as well for my GMC 1/2 ton.

    yeah, well the dealer that i got it from has been selling alot of them. its a real good plow, just like the mid weight but just a little lighter, but is still very tough for residential and light commercial plowing. and has scrape lock. its just like a snow way 26

    The HTS is probably the best plow in DD's line up right now (excluding Blizzard, of course, Mark) Considering the Fisher HT for one of my vehicles. Same plow, but I understand the Western mounting system is better than the Fisher.

    First off, i may be a noob but whats DD? yeah both the ht and that hts are nice, idk if the trip edge would be better to have or not, but the ulta mount is very nice.

    looks nice man....... i just cant believe you trusted those light duty ratchet straps to hold that moldboard in place during transport... If you ever had to stop fast, we'd would have been reading about never installed blood stained moldboard in the classifieds.....
