Re: snow plows
Personally living in western NY by buffalo I wouldn't get a snow plow. My driveway isn't that big so I ended up spending 700 on a Craftsman Snowblower over the 1200 or so for a whole plow setup.
Plows can be hard on the front springs or torsen bars especially because of the added 300 - 400 lbs of weight of the plow. Also the drivetrain takes a real beating especially on an automatic. Dad had a plow on his truck and he put more money into the damn thing every year because stuff kept breaking which brings me to my point. Would you wrather fix possibly a 200 repair bill to fix a decent snow blower if it breaks, or have a 1200 dollar repair bill plus out a vehicle? Just my 2 cents...
