    I've have a 80" snoway on a Suz. Samurai for about 15 years and it's worked quite nice doing just about anything, just wish it was wider. I have had good luck running straight, lightweight equipment. Never broke anything. This year I added a 03 Dodge Diesel 4dr long bed, srw to the pot and am thinking of adding a plow. I see many people running 7.5' plows on them and a few dealers/manufactures suggest 7.5' plows. I am leaning to a straight 8'. I would rather find a used plow... most are heavy all steel plows. I recently found a snoway 7.5' for sale.
    Q. What am I missing not running a big heavy 8'+ plow vs the light snoway?
    Basher and a few others have said go with the 8', but I can get the 7.5 snoway used for $2000 and that makes it hard to change my thinking.

    the only thing you will lose will be 6". the curl of the blade holds it down and if you want more turn on the Down pressure.
