The article reports on the changes in snowplow-mounting guidelines for 2009 model trucks released by U.S. truck manufacturers. Ken Tyburski, supervisor of product information for special vehicle engineering at Ford Motor says that the recommended weight limits on a properly equipped 2009 F-150 have changed. General Motors recommends that when a snowplow is mounted on a vehicle, only one passenger should accompany the driver because more than one passenger may exceed front Gross Axle Weight Ratings.
