    Decided I am getting a plow for my 2005 Ford F250. What would be the best plow to get? I want a 7'6". Someone told me the Snow Way 29 Poly series is the best with the down pressure. Please help.

    Putting aside for the moment that you're a Red Sox fan, I'll help you out a little. ;)

    How much work are you planning on doing with it? Snow Way, so I've heard is a good brand, and the whole downforce thing is excellent. Does cost come into it?

    I havemy office to don my house and my parents house. Nothing major. The cost of these plows is outrageous but I have to do it. Got quotes for fisher western snowway that were all about 4500 to 5000

    $4500 huh...I have a Snow Dogg by Buyers. Great product, even better support (their Rep is on here daily), and the price is right.

    Good Luck

    You will want to get what you can get parts for in your area. Fishers are popular on the fords in the Northeast. Also check out Boss and Curtis. Check craigslist too. You might find one a couple years old and save a couple grand. Although this time of year the price is higher. Good luck to ya.

    Edit....oh yeah, one more thing. I would put an 8 footer on a 250.

    You want at least an 8' plow on a 250 or it won't clear the tire tracks when angled.
    Dealer service and support is more important then brand

    At least an 8 footer, probably and 8-6. If you can get support for the Sno-Way, get it.
