Default Opinions of MD75 Snowdogg Plow

Thinking of one for my 04 F150. Any thoughts or opinions good and bad. Seems to me a middle of the pack plow. Plowing only my drive 600'+ feet lomg.

Looks like a decent plow. I would think you should get a lot of life out of it only doing a single driveway. How does it compare price wise to name brand plows?

for one driveway it will do great, and it is a namebrand plow with quite a bit of support locally.

However at that price id also consider a Boss, of all the plows they seem to have the quickest and simplest mounting/dismounting. being only used on your drive, the rust from salt is a non-issue. my 7.5 std boss is over 6 years old and I havent done anything but change the fluid and it has been used doing lots and drive every storm. (got a new one this year just because its getting a little to old for comfort and will be going on my jeep though)

Most plows these day use identical pumps and motors, really comes down to price and preference and what fits your truck.

My dad has a western on his f150 (been on a couple now since like 05, currently on his 2010) hasnt had any problems but he always calls me to help him put it on and the mounting sucks compared to my boss plows.

Im also partial to boss since i have 3 of them.

I looked at the boss plows also and would like to get one but the price was a bit daunting. I need to look into the westerns and meyers before I continue though. Yes price is a big factor.....

BOSS plows hold up much better than all other plows IMO. Simple, durable system that is built to last. You get what you pay for with plows...but you know that. Buying BOSS supports MI too if that matters...designed and manufactured in Iron Mountain MI (UP)

We have about 10 boss plows at work and one Meyer

The boss plows are really nice and really easy to mount and dismount
The Meyers not bad just takes two people to mount and dissmount
