Snow-way does not offer a plow for light duty vehicle with down pressure. only gravity and the weight of the plow. go to www.snoway.com look in the bottom right of the web page and they will find the right plow for your vehicle. get the widest plow they offer. i run a Meyers 8.5' and it weighs in about 880 lbs with mount. also go to www.PlowSite.com. they have a thread that talks about plows. some of the guys on there are a little by-***.

What is your view on why go with the widest? How does that effect your ability to plow residential driveways?

going with wider plow.

1. minimum plow should be wider than your tires so you can get traction and you don't pack the snow(easier for removal.

2. the wider the plow more snow removed, less time at property = more money

3. before the snow hits, need to do a layout for the property so you know where the obstacles are, and how you will attack the drive. where the snow will be piled and most important of all will the plow fit. the manufactures will only offer one maybe 2 sizes bigger than the vehicle it was designed for. take mine for instance 01 Chevy 3500 hd 1ton dually, Meyers offered 7.5(smaller than my rear duals, 8, 8.5 and 9ft i chose the 8.5 because of some drives i am doing, but if i add wing i gain a additional 24" making the plow 10'4" so i can plow the K-mart parking lot quicker.

Have you used wings on your plow yet? What did you think of using them? How did they effect your ability to plow?

What did they say the benefit was of downward pressure for plows on smaller vehicles?

Steve, You have the ability to back drag drive way. With the lighter plow (350 lbs) you need the down pressure to help
