I am looking to buy a a dump truck and would like some info. Does anyone have a 2X4 dump they use for plowing snow? I see alot of them for sale but wonder how good they are in the snow. I definately need a dump but would like to also have a second truck for plowing and there are more 2X4 dumps with plows for sale and they are much cheaper. Basically do think a 2X4 dump is worth getting?

We have two 2 wheel drive F 450 turbo diesel mason dumps. They both have 8.5 foot westerns and they each have a stainless Swenson spreader. Fully loaded they plow as if they were 4 wheel drive. When we had the 30+inches during the presidents day storm, we didn't have any problems. Our skidsteer got stuck more than our mason dumps......

2 wheel is ok on flat parking lots 4*4 is a better all around truck for snow less chance of getting stuck i had a f-450 and it would get stuck in my driveway with no weight on it if it was full of weight it would go ok but would not turn and i had no plow on it didnt think it was worth the money get a 4*4 u will like it better
just my opinion
