Prepare yourselves New Yorkers, another brutal winter is headed our way, and now is the time to get ready. Perhaps this is the winter that you finally pull the trigger and purchase your own snowplow. Whether it’s just for personal use or you’re looking to make some money, there are some important considerations in your choice of plowing equipment. Our team at Hitch Plow has put together a list of three that you’ll want to take into account.
1. Choose Quality ProductsAs you research snowplow options, you will find a wide range of products at different price points. It can be tempting to go for the cheapest product available. However, if you’re looking for a plow to perform well and last a long time, a quality plow is a better investment. Even if a plow is cheaper up front, you will likely lose that savings quickly as you will constantly have to purchase replacement parts for it.
2. Consider the JobsBefore you go snowplow shopping, consider whether you’re planning to use your plow only for personal use or to make some money. If you’re going to be contracting to plow big parking lots or long rural driveways, you’ll need a larger plow. Consider a V-plow, which will provide quicker and more efficient snow removal. However, if you’re only planning to plow your own driveway, a smaller plow will suffice.
3. Choose Ease over Speed
Even though our team will equip your vehicle with a snow plow and make sure it fits perfectly, the fact is that you will need to attach the plow in the worst conditions. Picture yourself installing your plow in the dark, in the cold, and with ice, wind, and snow blowing all around you. For this reason, we urge you not to choose products that boast the fastest attachment systems; instead, focus on those that are easy to attach.
