Plow or not plow with a 2000 Powerstroke???

Discussion in 'Commercial Snow Removal' started by PlowboyBlake, Aug 11, 2004.

  1. Hello all,

    I just bought a 2000 F250 Supercab Sbox 4x4, Auto, Powerstroke, very nice truck. I am thinking about a new plow for it. I plowed last year with my 93 1/2ton shebby and maybe wanna put a plow on this new beast. I want to get a 8.0 footer and then put some pro wings on it. I hope that this will be the setup to have going on. Should I buy a brand new one or get a used one for it? I'm pretty sure that I can get the accounts I need. What do u guys think, should I buy a plow and plow major snow or just ride my snowmobile that I love to do>?? Thanks for all the help.

    If you really want to plow and make some money doing it then buy a new plow unless you find a nice working plow cheap. If you want to plow for maybe a small amount of cash and or family and friends then get a used plow or just keep using your chevy. On size I would go with atleast a 8" plow. As for plow make and model I would wait and ask more experienced plowers due to their wider knowledge of different plows.

    Any thing wrong with the chevy? Maybe just use that another season or 2 if it works fine till you get a bit bigger, then upgrade? This will also give you an idea of what type of plowing you will be doing and maybe a better idea on how to set up your rig. BTW and trust me on this one, set your programing back to stock or down to a lower tune when plowing if you use the stroke.

    Make sure you have yourself protected with contracts and the porper insurance.

    What could be more fun than plowing snow? LOL :nod:

    If you know how to work on things and know what to look for you may be able to get a good blade for a good price. Its just like buying a new vrs used truck....warantee and something someone else hasnt had the chance to abuse or take the chance with a used peice were someone else already ate a big chunk of the depreciation. Key words if and may JMO I'm not totaly dissagreeing with you though by anymeans
