How many fords have you owned that lost oil pressure? For us its been the last 3 out of 4 trucks. :hammerhead:

Just one truck, and it is a 1981 F-350 with the 351m, put an oil pump and new bearings in it. I also stop driving my trucks when i notice the oil pressure drops to nothing, can't say that my employees would do the same. I'm not bashing dakota's just saying that is a very light duty truck to put a plow on, and we all know hard plows are on front end parts.

Yeah we stopped when the pressure dropped. All 3 of them lost pressure due to sludge clogging up the oil pick up. We maintain our trucks pretty good so that left a very bad taste. 2 of them were inline 300's, and 1 was a 302. All of them lost pressure around the 60K mile mark. The inline 300 was a beast for towing because of the long stroke. It was by far more powerful than the 302, 351, 4.6 and our current 5.4. The new mod motors are pigs. Eat alot of fuel and have very little power :cry:

Also that blizzard plow isnt a "commercial" grade plow if you will. Thats more of a homeowner's plow. It is electric operated. It doesnt look very heavy but it appears to be dragging down the front of that dakota quit a bit. Our meyer is very heavy but it doesnt phase our K2500. We get very little snow here so it doesnt get used hardly at all.

Same here in KY we don't get that much snow and we have meyer plows on a few trucks that just sit around. Also i have found that if you run kerosene through your engines it will help clean out the sludge, the pickup tubes clog up pretty easy i hear. We have done that to a few of the older truck and you wouldn't believe what can come out in to the pan. I would love to see some snow this next year, I have tons of commercial accounts just in case we do get snow I would haul in a lot of cash quick.

im not saying that he uses the dakota to plow hugh commercial lots, he has a few driveways that he does, and that's basically it, he works for a paving company clearing snow from sidewalks at this big commercial building, and when he is done with that he goes and does his driveways. we know its a light duty truck, and we use it as such, i plow 2 commercial places and 15 driveways with my ram

Is there a plow that is not electric? My Snoway uses electric power to operate the hydraulics....ground breaking!!!! So you suggest he put a 9' "commercial" plow on a light truck??? It looks to me like a properly sized plow for that vehicle..........

i plow is one of the heveyiest duty plow for the smaller trucks....plus my cuz has a 7'6'' standard plow that isnt "commercial" and hes been plow for 4yrs with all commercial lots too so i dunno...which is also elec. and those blizzards are hydrolic there set up is just different...

Ahhh I gotcha now. I thought the blizzards were purely electric with no hydrolics.

thank you! someone gets it, jesus, lol its a lightdudy truck, with a light duty plow, which plows light duty driveways, lol i never said het guys look at my bros commercial grade dakota, which plows 12 commercial lots, and the local airstrip, but only the airstrip when its 2-3 feet of snow, in the worst possible blizzards, because it is just that heavy duty. i said "LOOK AT MY BROS TRUCK ITS THE PERFECT DRIVEWAY TRUCK"

5 hydraulic Rams on this plow.couple questions, did you plow this season with it, and do you think the little wings are worth it, my buddy has an 05 ram 2500 with the cummins, and is looking to put a plow on it for next year, also how did you like the plow, and about how much does it weigh?

I am getting the mount for a Snoway 29 8', put on my 05 Ram 2500 Cummins tomorrow....

This plow is by far the most productive plow I own. The wings are not little they extend from 8ft to 11ft and can also angle forward to a scoop position.
The plow is alot heavier than the Western 8ft plows I have. 950 llbs
to 700.

lol sorry i didnt mean little in that sence, i know all about the plow, just never knew anyone who had one, they are fairly new in this part of ct, so you dont see many blizzard plows around here, but i have been trying to convince my buddy to get one for his 2500 cummins, only thing is they say the cummins is a heavy engine, and shouldent put a big plow on an 05 ram, now he is all parinoid about it, because he things its they are to heavy.

if your going to get a plow, get one of the blizzards with the hydraulic rams. you wont ever regret. one of the best performing plows on the market.

That looks like a awesome truck for driveways and I know that you have been waiting for a response like this the whole time, lol. how's the turning radius on that thing? It the back of the truck jacked up or is the plow weighing it down as much as it looks?
