May i be so bold as to suggest a Boss plow to you? But, if i had to choose between the two i would go with Curtis. Because you don't need to have a warehouse of parts to carry with you in case one of the pumps goes out! :headwall Jon
I can't speak for Curtis or any other plow but the one I have and the two my son has. Although we don't plow the # of events that the east seems to (we plow +/- 12 events), we have not been let down by our Meyer plows. I just replaced the pump seal (easy to do with helpful suggestions) which is the first repair on any of the three blades, in 4 years.
Whatever you buy make sure you haveproduct support.
slplow says you don't need parts for a Curtis? Maybe if it never gets used.
Lawn-Scapes, the ribbing and sniping are friendly jabs at eachother, it helps us learn more about our product and helps us stay proud of our equipment even when we know it isn't the best on the market. As in, " I bought the wrong plow???? No way man, I don't make mistakes!"
But not just any MEYER's....Get the C-8 and get the E-57H Pump.
If you choose any other MEYER, you'll most likely understand why they are frowned upon.
The C-8 is a Heavy Duty plow which shares its A-Frame and Sector with the 8.5' and 9' Meyer's. The new E-57 is a proven design with quicker action.
MEYER parts are a dime a dozen. All plows will eventually break, When it's a MEYER that breaks you have SEVERAL choices for parts, and many are interchangable. You really can't say that for many brands.
I also have had good luck with meyers plows and they have made me alot of money throughout the years with hardly any break downs.I do recommend the C series which is a bit stronger than the ST. You can get meyers parts anywhere!:shades
