Fire Department Snow Plow

Northern VA fire department here looking for some advice.

We use a 2001 F350 SRW CC as a brush truck/snow plow. Right now we have a flat bed with a 2000lb water tank/pump in the back. On the front we have an ancient Myer 7'6" straight plow I think about 20inches high. The plow seems a little undersized for the truck and we would like something bigger (8ft to cover width of an engine?) possibly considering a V plow. We are concerned with weight (believe the old plow is fairly light as far as plows go), reliability and user friendliness. We are limited to BOSS per contract.

please submit your suggestions for us to upgrade! thanks
