It looks small to me... Sometimes these smaller plows can look big because of the height. My biggest plow looks way bigger than it actually measures.

I'd get a 6.5 foot snoway with down pressure if you can afford it.

The problem with that is the factory pump used on that system is no longer available. And without spending the money for a power unit and having the fab skills to set it up you will be in way over your head price wise.

I see it everyday, people buy a plow for dirt cheap and it takes 3-4k to make it work properly on there vehicle.

if you are plowing for money, the commanche isn't a good choice. If you are plowing at home, the plows offered at Home Depot/Costco operated by a winch, work great, on a smaller rig than a commanche even.

screw all that talk him down to 300 and ditch the hydraulics and use a small winch. for home use that will be chaep and easy and might even sell some of the hydro stuff to another person or make a redneck hydro assist if the rams are near the right size....
