I'm using a 1990 Chevy 1/2 ton 4x4 to plow snow. It has a Meyers blade with a 47H electric / hydraulic unit. It has the standard alternator 105amp and standard battery, which is a 660 CCA rating I believe. When I'm lifting the blade I notice my volt meter takes a dive but comes right back up once I release the lift switch. Do I need to see if I can find a bigger alternator, battery or both? Do I nee to go to twin batteries?
Thanks,
Bill

It certainly wouldn't hurt to upgrade your alternator, it will probably burn out at some point. It would also help to run dual batteries, I'm pretty sure you could add the second tray from a diesel model to do it.
