Western Midweight Plow

I'm looking at either a Western Standard 7'6" plow or the new Western Midweight 7'6" for my 2003 GMC Sierra 1500 1/2 ton. The plow will be mainly be used on my dirt driveway and a few small jobs.

I'd like to go with the Midweight but I haven't heard from anyone using this new model yet.

Anyone have any feedback on Western Midweight?

Thanks

i have install a couple of them and tripped over one sitting in the shop for the last 2 weeks so i have had a good look at them.

They are building them in what basically is a lighter version of the pro plus , which is designed as a commercial use blade. I havent really seen anything i could be critical of and like the way they built twhere the a-frame meets the quadrant, will keep the blade from wobbling after alot of use.

Western does their homework before they put out a product and the mid weight is supposed to be replacing the standard plows eventually. I dont think you will have a problem with it for what you are planning on using it for.

I have a 7'6 midweight poly blade on my dodge ram 1500 quad cab and it works great , I went with the poly only because I have a stone driveway and didnt care to see my blade start to rust from the stones scratching the surface. The dealer said that if you were to puncture the poly blade with a rock, stick, etc. you would puncture the steel blade as well thats how tough the poly blade is. I absolutely love my midweight. As for cost...I payed $4000 installed with handheld controller. I have pictures on here somewhere. I say go with it, its a lot lighter then the others and that spells less ware and tear on your frontend. Good Luck!
