    I plowed 3 years with my Mule and a 72” Moose plow. Yes, they are very capable of snow removal.

    thank You, just need to figure out a hydraulic system for it now. I'm looking at it at noon, I'm guessing with 100 hrs there wont be any surprises so I'll probably own it today unless my conscience kicks in. :-)

    This is the kit for my plow, though I did not have it on mine, they're out there is the point.

    I have a 4way hydraulic setup for my old 140 I could adapt to the 7' blade and I have a 12v hydraulic pump, maybe I'll just buy a loader valve with float and build it my self. Then I'll have down pressure to scrape the pavement as well.

    Depending on the brand of plow they may have a hydraulic setup available?

    IMO a 7ft Plow would be to much for the 550
