i love my blizzard 810 power plow. cut plow time on my lots from 45 minutes to 20.
any plow you put on a 1/2 ton or any truck will ultimately destroy it.
wheel bearing, tie rod ends, sway bars, alignments, all become yearly maintainence replacement items.
Plowing is a high dollar business, but save money back for replacement and repairs.
You can get started with any meyer,boss,western, hiniker plows.
REQUIREMENTS: MUST BE AT LEAST 7'6" (8' is better)
MUST HAVE POWER UP, POWER LEFT/RIGHT
CABLE WINCHES AND MANUAL TURNING OF THE BLADE ARE OUT!!!!
STAY AWAY FROM RESIDENTIAL USE PLOWS SUCH AS SNOWBEAR
AND MANY "SPORT MODELS" THEY ARE MADE TO PLOW ONE 80' DRIVE
FOR A YEAR OR TWO.(you get that much wear in one day for hire)
Parts are readily available online competitively, used plows are everywhere for usually cheap.
Avoid heavy plows for your 1/2 ton, V-Plows and Power Plows are too heavy..
bagged goods of deicer or salt stacked against tailgate work for counter weight.
