• 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

Unsure about salting/spreaders

Hi everyone. I know I'm going to have to salt this year to make any money. Plus to get any good commercial accounts they need salt. The problem I see is the visablity. I'm a short guy and I like to be able to look out the back window while plowing. Is there any spreaders out there that would not block my view out the back window?

Any v box spreader will block your view. However there are some low profile tailgate units that when installed are below the tailgate.

It is a low profile v box, but not to the point where you can see over it. Plus even if it did only come up to the bottom of the rear window, you still have the line of site issue, which would hamper vision to the rear. the best bet is get used to your mirrors, and get extra rear lighting.

You can see over my bradford V-box,but barley,and as soon as you heap it,you cant see anymore.If you run a V-box its just something you gotta live with,get good mirrors and keep them clean.

I don't know how anybody can deal with the constant twisting and stretching trying to look out the back window. In addition, I feel it's actually LESS safe than using mirrors. If you're using mirrors you can see to both sides as well as what is behind you by turning your neck just a few degrees. If you're all cramped up trying to see out the back window it's impossible to watch your plow corners, a real bid item in close quarters operation. Oh yeah, what about dump bodies? Better stay away from them things, all I see out of the back window of mine is the front of the body.
