3 Things to Look For in a Plow Truck

Posted at Wed, Dec 29, 2021 3:00 PM

Maybe you’re looking for a truck to perfect your side hustle, or perhaps you have a larger property that the county snow plows won’t touch. Either way you need a plow truck to get the job done. But while you have tons of options for plow trucks, the last thing you want is to get one that doesn’t get the job done.

That’s why we came up with this guide to walk you through the three most important things to check out when picking out a plow truck.

The Capacity/Size of the Truck

It’s the most important factor you need to consider when you’re looking for a plow truck – getting the right sized truck. And the size truck you need all depends on how you plan on using your snowplow. For commercial applications, you want at least a ¾ ton truck, but for smaller plows you can use a ½ ton truck.

While there’s a lot of emphasis on the kind of power behind the truck, the truth is that it doesn’t take too much force to run a typical snowplow. Because of this you don’t need to worry about an upgraded engine package. Four-wheel drive is a significant consideration though!

It Shouldn’t Be Ready to Go

When you’re trying to purchase a truck to use as a snowplow, it can be tempting to go for a truck that already has all the attachments hooked up. We’d advise against this for a few reasons. First, it generally drives the price of the truck up.

Second, unless it has everything exactly how you want it, you’ll end up paying for stuff that you really didn’t want in the first place. And finally, while you might treat your plow truck the right way, there’s no guarantee the last owner did.

Because of this we recommend going for a truck that doesn’t have any of the attachments on it already and getting exactly what you want for your truck. This helps ensure you’re getting the highest quality truck and exactly what you need to get the job done right.

Quality, Quality, Quality

By far the most important thing you need to look into when you’re getting a plow truck is to get a well-maintained, high-quality truck.

While you can go through everything yourself, unless you’re an experienced mechanic, it can be easy to miss a few things.

That’s why we recommend sticking with an extremely reputable company like Tim’s Truck. They go through everything on the truck before selling it to you, that way you know you’re getting a high-quality truck you can rely on the first-time snowfalls.

Final Thoughts

When the first snowfall hits, the last thing you want is to get stuck inside or need to wait for a county plow truck to come and bail you out. That’s why you need to invest in a top-notch plow truck today, and there’s no better place to find your new plow truck than Tim’s Truck.

They provide top-notch trucks that you can rely on, which means the perfect plow truck at the perfect price!
