    hello. The company I work for has gotten approach by buyer to see if we want to become a dealer for them for all their products (snow dogg, salt dogg, scoop dogg and dumper dogg). witch means they want us to be a Distributor for them to. i was wondering what u guys think about them. pleas any information the good or the bad would be great.
    thank you

    I got my first Snowdogg this year. Its a vx85. I would never have even tried them, but it came on a 2008 Ford F350 I purchased so we figured we would try it out. I am a BOSS guy at heart, but I have to admit that the Snowdogg has performed excellent and has stood up to the abuse we can put them through including stacking snow, jumping curbs, clearing lots, clearing drives, slinging snow, cutting hardpack, etc. I would not hesitate to buy another.

    Do some research on here, you'll get an idea of buyers/snow dogg products real quick.

    What does that mean?

    People bashing a product they don't even own?

    I think they are great products. I'm sure the spreaders sell 3:1 regardless of what people say on here

    We have no plows but do have 3 saltdogg spreaders. shpe1500, tgs07 and utg. All have trouble free for the most part. Our problem was with getting the utg. Ordered and paid in full early Dec, was told two weeks to get it by buyers. Two weeks passed no spreader. Called them, they said it would ship next week. This went on for six weeks. Every week we would call to find out where it was, every week they would say next week. Now the 1500 has trouble with chute jamming if the salt is even slightly wet. The UTG has spread everything we have ran thru it including cinders, no salt left around here. The TGS does not hold well to backing into things. :eek:

    This is my first year with a Snowdogg VXF 9'-6", so I can't say I've been using it for "years", but I've logged a hell of a lot of hours with it in just this season, and I have yet to have any problems with it. I liked the price, LOVE the stainless. Don't know first-hand, but heard that their factory support has been good. If I were to buy another plow right now I'd either buy another of what I already have, or a Boss DXT with the dual trip.

    Bought a VXF 85 in may. Good plow, worked well. Ended up cracking a center hinge. Appeared to be a flaw in the steel. Went to my dealer. No parts in stock at the distributor. They gave him the ok to pull parts from a new plow to get me back up and running. Had my plow back in less than 48 hours with not only the failed wing replaced but also the other side as well.

    Bought a second one a VXF 95 this time about a week later to replace the western on my other truck. I've been more than happy with them all winter. Other than that one issue they have been great and honestly the warranty service is what spurred me to purchase the second plow.

    I would like to see just a hair more power in the angle cylinders and a bit more travel in the lift cylinder but other than that I have absolutely no complaints about these plows. When the time comes to add another truck to the fleet. It will have another snowdogg on it.
