    Does anyone do any snow removal with the GMC 4500 series. I was wondering if a 2 wheel drive 4500 would be fine. I know we very rarely put any of the other trucks into 4 wheel drive. Any experience or opinions would be appreciated.

    I see allot o f them by me plowing. Just have plenty of ballast in the back, plow with the storm and keep it to as level ground as you can....

    Perhaps a landscape company in your area that you could speak with? Its not exactly a 'trade secrete'.

    Yeah, you would think but I haven't seen another 4500 for the last 4 days. If I wasn't looking for input I would probable see 10 trucks a day. Go figure just my luck.
