    was thinking of getting a new plow vs a used one ..dont know whats best, never plowed before, have 7 driveways lined up for this winter, can any-one give me an idea?
    saw a new plow that is manual for sale online brand new for only $1600 is it worth it or spend 2K more..and get what?

    Get a light weight plow,
    Length, 8.x at least

    An fledgling business...:waving:
    Now that your plowing 7 drives have you given any thought as to insurance?
    You'll need commercial ins;) Your plowing for $$$$$$ right?
    I know what your thinking,
    Hey i've got a truck I'll make some "EASY" money plowing a few neighbors drives.
    what can go wrong?

    a lot.

    What happens if you hit there house, garage, car, or a slip fall etc etc..

    Pretty much like one for and ATV or a Lawn tractor only BIGGER. Get out pull a lever to lift, pull a pin to angle. First plow truck i remember had a electric over hyrdaulic lift (T-6) and me for power angle

    Dude, get a Meyer plow. I put one on my 2002 dodge 1500 last winter and it rocks

    haha, manual? imagine this.... when you back out of your drive way.... getting out and kicking the tires to move them manually in the dirrection you want to go....

    rememebr a few things... 1 its cold out... you will get lazy... we all do... how do you thinkg your job is gonna look when your done, because you cant angle it to meet the enge of the drive when stacking?

    that plow is fare from a professional plow im sure.... i bet its super light weigt, so it cant scrap that well, and could be bent...

    id rather buy a used plow than that

    snow way has good light weight models.... for a long time, down pressure would be good for drives
