Important Factors When Choosing A Snow Plow For Sale



Buying a plow truck for sale requires careful consideration. Before your business invests in a truck for sale in Wisconsin for snow removal, it's important to understand your unique needs. If your business is in the market for a plow truck for sale near you, Ewald Commercial Trucks will be an incredible resource. Our commercial truck dealership has helped Wisconsin customers choose the right snow plows for many years. If your company needs a truck for sale near Milwaukee for snow removal, here are some major factors to consider.



Make sure the blade of the plow isn't too heavy for your truck.
You'll want to ensure that your truck for sale in Wisconsin can support the weight of the blade without compromising handling. If you try to plow with an overly heavy blade, you'll cause extra wear-and-tear on your suspension system.


Choose the most suitable material for your blade.
Most plow trucks for sale are equipped with steel blades. The advantages of a steel blade include superior durability, and the ability to perform in diverse environments. Polyethylene blades are a more recent development. Benefits of a polyethylene blade include more efficient and speedy snow removal, and no risk of rust.



Understand the various snow plow types.
Straight-blade snow plows are the common industry standard. There are also rear-mounted plows, which are considered to be safer. Rear-mounted plows can be easily removed when they aren't being used, and are often used in conjunction with a front plow. V shaped plows cut through snow more effectively than the straight-blade options. They're also more difficult to operate, and require special training.


Make sure you have enough horsepower and torque.
Snow removal requires a lot of grit, so you'll need a truck for sale in Wisconsin that can handle the challenge. Since you'll be pushing a great deal of extra weight, diesel trucks for sale can make terrific plow vehicles. Diesel trucks for sale offer superior torque, which allows your truck to push the weight of the snow. Horsepower is also an important factor in choosing a plow truck for sale. For industrial snow removal, choose a truck for sale near Milwaukee that boasts high torque AND horsepower.


Opt for a plow truck with a capable alternator.
The alternator is essential for powering the electronics in your truck. In the snow removal industry, it's more than likely that you'll need to operate some accessories as you work. Electric salt spreaders, floodlights, and blade hitches allow you to perform your work to the best of your ability. A 160 amp alternator should suffice for your next plow truck for sale!




Consider four-wheel drive and/or dually wheels
Four wheel drive provides necessary traction on unplowed terrain. Choosing a truck for sale in Wisconsin with 4WD will make driving on steep, snowy roads much easier. Along the same lines, dually trucks provide additional rear weight and stability. Depending on your plowing needs, you may wish to consider choosing a dually truck for snow removal.




Finding the right plow truck for sale near you won't be difficult at Ewald Commercial Trucks. With so many plow trucks to choose from, you're sure to find the ideal option for your business. Visit our commercial truck dealer today to check out our current inventory.
