It’s shaping up to be another brutal winter here in New York, with the average winter snowfall reaching an average of 25 inches. That’s great news for anyone who makes their money plowing snow or melting ice, but what about residents without their own personal plows? If you’re tired of relying on someone else to plow your driveway or if you’re looking to make some money plowing other’s properties, now is the time to invest in your own snow plow. The professionals at Hitch King have been providing the NYC area with snow plows since 1970, so today we’re discussing everything you need to know about buying your first plow.
Only Buy Quality Products
As you begin researching different plows, you’ll find that there is a wide range of products at different price points. That’s why it is important to find a dealer you can trust to provide you with a quality snow plow. Just because a plow looks good sitting in a shop, doesn’t mean it will perform the way you want it to. At Hitch King, we stock snow plows from Fisher, SnowDogg by Buyers, Meyer, and Western, and we stand by these manufacturers. We understand that it’s best to invest in quality to avoid costly repairs down the road.
Buy the Right Plow for the Job
Next, you’ll need to consider what type of jobs you’ll need your plow to do. Are you thinking about contracting snow removal jobs for businesses with big parking lots? Or do you plan to plow side roads or long rural driveways? Or, are you simply a homeowner with a long driveway that you want to clear easily? Our team of experts can help you find the right snow plow for any job you can throw at it.
Don’t Forget the Accessories
Purchasing the right snow plow is only the first step in outfitting your truck with the gear it needs to take on the New York snow. At Hitch King, we also stock an extensive line of snow plow parts to make sure your vehicle is ready for the job, no matter how tough. From hydraulics and controls to curb guards and light kits, we are guaranteed to have what you need.
