When Dave’s neighbor needed a snowplow fit for duty, the crew at Sparks Motors delivered.

Choosing the 1997 Stewart And Stevenson M1088 MTV (Medium Tactical Vehicle) for the base was an easy choice with its Caterpillar C7, 7.2-liter, 6-cylinder inline Diesel motor this wicked 6 wheeled machine boasts a payload capacity of 5 U.S TONS.

The chassis was outfitted with a Western Plows MVP 3 V-Plow via a custom adaptor built in house and a Western Plows “Striker” Hopper out back that that features dual motors for the conveyor and spreaders to insure a nice even spread of sand or salt over the roadway.

A thick coat of construction yellow PPG paint was laid over the drab military colors on the cab and Sparks Motors gray on the bed while the trim, fenders and undercarriage were treated to a layer of undercoating.  A custom Sparks Motors logo plate on the front of the cab gives it that finished touch.

Once you wrap a set of chains around the massive military tires, this monster snow plow will go just about anywhere and leave a clear patch in its wake. It’s safe to say this build was a success!!
