I have looked back through the many pages on this site and there are a lot of complaints on welding. It seems to be not only one brand of snow plow. I work for Sno-Way and if you have a plow that is 1year old or less and you experience welding problems, WE NEED TO KNOW, if your dealer is not helping you out with this, call us directly at 1-800-662-1453. The worse thing that can happen to any product in general is failure. We at Sno-Way have set high standards, this is not an advertisement ONLY FACT. We are currently ISO9002 certified. This means anything put together in our facility goes through a series of quality checks. If you the end user are experiencing a welding problem, 97% of our plow is robotic welded, this is why we need to know as soon as you have these problems. Often because of lack of communication, we don't hear about any problems until the dealer says something. Many of you out there know more about metal than we salesmen will ever know, but all same, inorder to provide a quality product that will last is important to me as a salesman and we need to know. All manufacturers need to know as many are going the route of the robot. Sno-Way for instance has invested millions to acquire two Mitsubishi Lasers, two of largest in world, it for this reason, we as a manufacturer need to know when we have customers who have problems. Again, I do not intend on this being an advertisement only trying to convey why it is important for you the customer to let us know how your equipment is holding up. This goes for any brand of plow.
