O so no wings? If it is the half-ton plow that is lighter, than I would go for it!

27, that's a decent amount for part-time. How do you do all that plowing, do you go once before school, then once after? How long does your route take?

Wow, sounds good, be sure to post some pics of everything goes good. I would look at a western before a meyer though. Seems like almost everyone up here runs western.

Ya I have considered it. I'm not crazy about going through the hastle of swapping mounts and all. It is way overkill for driveways, which is all I do as of right now. I wasn't even planning on plowing, but the plow came with the truck so I figured I might as well get about 10-15 driveways. In the future I Would like to do a few lots with my truck and blizzard, and have my buddy who works for me get a smaller western for driveways. We'll see what happens.
