    I own a repair shop and landscape business so I'm picky about what I keep so you know if I'm keeping it its all the way right.. Cause all my equipment is crispy

    ive got that blue 2500hd still with the meyer lot pro and it barely squats and i think they might only be a couple hundred pounds difference. The only good about meyers is their no questions asked warranty. i was lucky enough to sub for a good friend who pays out well and the meyers has taken a beating and the plow is holding up well the pump is the problem is actually split in half, so they were able to put it back together and hold up but i told the dealer i want it rebuilt free of charge.

    Yeah, that's fair for everything that gos with it. If I had more yards that I needed a smaller mower for, I'd be real into it cause it's so clean.

    ohh i thought it was a straight blade haha the v blade i always thought was a little over kill (dealer tried selling me a 1/2 yr old 8.5 meyer super v). Meyer recommended it but i thought hell no my 7.5 does my drives and the guy im working for upgraded to a western 8ft and a wideout. I love the wideout but he has it on his dump and it lifts the back end with no ballast lol. Yeah i hear i only plow just to keep customers happy and to have something to do during winter.

    thats the thing i regret now is the larger the lot the longer and harder it is to plow and i have used trucks with a v plow and loved it. If i had to do it over again i would go with a v plow or a wideout/XLS.

    Nice setup man! I have a Western wideout on my F250 powerstoke (7.3) and she dosent drop barely at all in the front.. I have a 14 ft Ebling back blade as well on the back and when I have both on its completely level and when I have just the wideout on it barely drops at all. Now I bought this truck from an older man and it was never plowed with before this winter so the front end may just not be worn out yet but only time will tell I guess
