Snow Plow

8 posts in this topic

I'm in the market for a new or used snow plow. I have never owned or bought one before so I am looking for any helpful suggestions or advice on what I should be looking for.

I have to agree with elwood, I have a hiniker and love it. I've had for 9 years with no problems. I would call around and ask what fits your 1/2 ton, I know when I bought mine, I dont know if a plow would fit on my 1/2 ton chevy because they are so low, I put a v-plow on a new chev. 3/4 ton back then and I know a v-plow was way too heavy for a my 2001 chev. 1/2 ton.

A straight blade might work on a 1/2 ton but I would call and make sure. Hiniker makes a great product especially the drive-in forks, makes hook-up real easy.

we had a 8 ft c-plow on a 91 blazer but it had a 2 inch over spring kit in it but I think that with out the spring kit it would of been fine. and the hook up is faster than anything out there.

Know a lot of guys who swear by Western snow plows. Bought a used 8.5 Pro plow with back drag for $1,700 7 years ago and it's worked fine for me. At the time it was only 2 years old so figure it was a fair price. I made $20 with it so far!!! Of course haven't had to pay for snow plowing since and my in laws like it a lot!

Check with some of the Chevrolet / GM dealers let them know what you are looking for. When a truck with a plow is traded in they will usually remove it before selling the truck. I purchased one in perfect condition minus some of the wiring $400 plus $40 for wires and switches. Still have it and working great.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
