    Hello ladies and gentleman. New to the site and plowing in general and need some advice.

    Bought a truck strictly for landscaping and want to get into plowing. Have a few accounts as a side business and always wanted to get into plowing.
    Truck is a 2008 F-350 gasser. Reg cab 8' bed.

    I definitely would like to go western but still unsure on pro or pro plus. With only a few hundred dollars separating the two I'm leaning towards plus but the extra weight scares me. Would probably go with the 8'6"

    Let me know your thoughts before I make this huge investment

    Pro plus is so much heavier duty than a pro, and a much taller blade. I have an 8'6" pro plus with wings on my 08f350 v10 gas and one on my 12' f350. They hold the plows fine. I have timbrens on both front ends and they really don't drop much with the plow raised.

    Pro plus. Everythings bigger. Blade wont lift up either pushing a crap load of snow.
