The s10 pickup wouldnt be a good choice if you planned on doing a straight
plow, if you used a Jimmy or Blazer you might have better luck making small
piles, but I would suggest putting a blade on the front that will throw the
snow towards one side or the other..
I posted this to different news groups because I am unsure which to
purchase. I wanted to see if anyone had a good/bad experience with
any of the smaller trucks. Just going to buy 1 truck, just not sure
which would be the best.
