    id like it to be red and have a chain lift :laugh: too bad western doesnt really have a nice plow for a 1/2 ton. but i think ill most likely go with a snow dogg v like jeremy's or a meyers. we will have to see what my money situation looks like at the end of the summer

    gotcha you could put a western midweight on it probably be a tad heavier than a Meyer but it should be fine. The v would be nice for those big storms just gonna be a little rougher on your truck

    hmm i didnt even consider that! i know that they have the smaller western plow that has a cylinder like a boss but i didnt know the midweight existed. I might go with that if i can get one for the right price! Id like the trucks to match. plus this plow has been really reliable

    Out of curiosity, How big was the tree? What do you charge for such a clean up if you don't mind me asking? Pm if you want. Thanks

    Nice size tree. I send those big trees to a tree service. By the time I cut it up and fill two p/u trucks and trailer and unload it, pay dumping fees I'd have to charge way more than a tree service.
