• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

sander in f250?


Junior Member
I currently have an 1988 f250, and i'm looking to put in a v-box spreader. Would a 1.7 8ft vbox be too much for this truck? I was thinking about just putting in a yard of material at a time. I would consider a smaller one but i found a used one that the guy bought last season a barely used it for a good price. Any suggestions?

Make sure your F-250 is the Heavy Duty model, check the rear axles, they should be full floating.

You'll be overweight, but if you add helper springs from the F-350 and upgrade your tires, the truck should handle it OK.
