When mounting a snow plow to your vehicle, you are adding additional weight to the front end of your vehicle. As such, it sometimes becomes necessary to counterbalance that weight by adding ballast. "Ballast" by definition is a heavy material carried temporarily to provide stability. Ballast needs and requirements will vary depending on what you put on and in your truck. You will want to refer to your snowplow manufacturer recommendations to know if and how much ballast is recommended.

What Kind of Job Are You Doing?
The type of job you plan on doing will play a huge part in the type of plow you chose. Generally, if you are plowing a heavy amount of sidewalks, which are very narrow, you’re going to want a smaller plow. You’ll want a plow that will clean the entire area without going over the edge of the sidewalk. BOSS offers a four foot ATV plow that is ideal for sidewalk use. Wider UTV snow plows are more equipped for residential, short driveways. If you are looking to plow more rugged terrain, such as a long camp drive, you might want to consider a v-plow as it can more easily break trail and cut through ice.
