I never see a "Curtis Snowplow" area in any forums I visit....is there really that few a number of Curtis owners out there? Or is it because they aren't popular with the business?
If that's the case.....might I ask why not?

Strange that you mentioned that, a curtis telivision commercial just came about 10 minutes ago. I see very few of these plows and I live 50 miles from the factory :confused:

we have two of em at my work. both are on f350 pickups. one is brand new, and the other one is about 2 years old. it has held up great and seems to be very sturdy. i really like the hydraulic jack stand as well.

I have a curtis dealer about 15 mins away from me but i dont see many curtis plows at all.Maybe three for 4 in the area that i have noticed.They always have a set up at the local fairs here and they do seem well built. I would consider buying one.

Seems like Curtis costs a bit more than the other manufacturers....might be why there's less on the road.
And the fact that they haven't been making the plows for automotive use for that long.

I have one and think it's great. Have had no real problems since I purchased it in 99. Like Mdb said, the hydraulic Jack is great. Also automatically retracts so you can't drive away with it down and tear it off !!

If I have one complaint on the Curtis plows, it would be that it's sometimes difficult to push the "arms" back, and push the locking pins in at the same time. Sometimes it goes right in...sometimes it seems to have way too much tension against it. Of course, i probably just need to get used to the new setup!

I have a Curtis dealer down the road from me, but I don't see alot of them on the road either. This year that dealer just started selling Blizzard Plows so I would say there will be less Curtis plows being sold this year in my neck of the woods.

I noticed a curtis dealer right down the road from my school in PA and I saw all the orange blades stacked. I'll have to let you know if i see any this winter, but so far I've been seeing alot of meyers and several fishers. They do look decent though.
