    Hi everyone,
    Our town of about 40 miles of paved and 40 miles of unpaved roads is in need of a single axle snowplow truck. We currently have the paystar internationals (2) and smaller 1 tons(2) but would like to purchase something brand new, completely out fitted with plow and 5-8 yd sander. We understand there is very limited time.
    Who out there could recommend a good bang for the buck? What type of truck and brand? Thank you for any input.

    Anything beside an International with a Max Force engine. If you go with International get it with a Cummins.

    Western Stars with DD13 Detroit and 8ll have been winning most of the municipal spec bids this year. Check with HP Fairfield they can give you an upfit ball park as well. Stay away from Maxxforce for sure! I have had very good luck with dd13 dd15 detroits.
