I'm sure this has been debated before, but I couldn't find the thread. I plow 3 miles of single lane unimproved dirt road around a lake in southern NH for myself and I may drive an hour into Ma to plow a family members driveway. I currently have a 95 SIlverado 2500 on Aggie plates because it will like never pass inspection again. It has an under the hood hydraulic pump Fisher, inaccurately named "minute mount" Mickey moused from a long dead ford f-150. I am not keeping this plow as it is as rotted and beat as the truck., and I am sick of junk. To replace it, I want to go used, but roadworthy, sand lot dealer with a warranty. My work provides me with a personal use vehicle for daily driving. So there is no sense in my buying a brand new anything just to have it sit. I wanted to go to 3/4 ton, and possibly a v plow, but I have been able to find an affordable 3/4 ton and what few I can find are very expensive, or not worth the money do to cab rot etc. I'm trying to be around 10-12 on the truck and I can roll a new plow into the note. Slim pickings for 3/4 tons in that range. 1/2 tons are available on ever street corner, and I get why those aren't the best choice for commercial I'm told by a Meyer/Boss dealer after about 2014 if the 1/2 tons don't have the plow prep, they cant take a plow (electronic issues). I was down around 2008 to 2010 for pricing anyway. Anyone have recommendations? For this I am not partial to any particular brand, It seems a Tundra might be a solid option. Secondary question, anyone have an idea of Tundra vs Tacoma for plowing? Honestly, I though this was going to be like the 80's and 90's...buy a truck, slap a plow on it, and go to town.
