Yep, and its not very hard to install by yourself.

In the summer you can put it facing a road for some added advertising!

Here is a quote of part of an email we got from Mark of "Marks Premier Landscaping" after the fist snow with the vinyl on his plows.

I think it says it all...

"those numbers are awesome, the snow doesnt stick to the plow as much either. You should patent the idea or something, give it 2 years and everyone will have it. haha, AND they already paid for themselves by people seeing them.

Thanks Again"

Thanks Mark, We appreciate doing business with you!

I love it. May I also add, we had a past storm of 8-12 inches in spots, and that truck went throught 3 tanks of gas and over 30+ hours of plowing and it still looks brand new, none of the vynil came off, and it helped the snow not stick to it.

I find myself relentlessly giving tonys number to other contractors. LOL. I say relentlessly because I want to be the only guy with it on his plow, but people keep asking me.

I painted my Western plow safety orange this year, then had a sign company paint my phone number on the blade. Now when I come up behind you, all you'll see in your rear view mirror is a really obnoxious orange plow blade and a phone number LOL. I also went to the junk yard and got a second tailgate for my Dodge, which is also painted the same bright orange, with the lettering: PLOWING/SANDING and the phone number. I'm the only one around here with a safety orange plow blade, marketing ploy? You bet!

Its not quitefinished yet, I still have some sanding and painting to do, but when it's complete I'll post some pics. Another friend of mine who plows is painting his purple. Sounds ugly but it just might be a great way to advertise.

"Know anyone who plows?"
"Yea there's a guy with a bright orange plow..."
