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.
