    There are guys that use those trucks to plow with, but I've seen where guys have lost rear ends from doing it.

    I plow with an npr! As long as you run good rubber & weight in the body you will be fine. I have ours set up with a 9' sno-way.

    How do they hold up rust wise? I know years ago the Kubotas always rusted out badly after a few seasons in the snow and salt?
