    Im trying to get some feed back on the snowdogg xp. Looks to be a good plow. Im going to run it on my 2005 silverado. Im also looking at the Western MVP v plows so if anyone has pros and cons for both that would be great. Also what kind of warranty does Snowdogg have?

    Thanks
    Brandon

    Brandon, I didn't realize that you were only in Dixon. If you are ever down this way, give me a call and you can look over an 810, and I'll try to get Mike (snocrete) to bring his WideOut over so you can see both. In my opinion, the ability to use the wings in both straight and scooped mode is priceless; something that the XP just cannot do.

    We installed a couple this season, so far every one has been happy with then. The only problems we had so far has been a leak from a loose hose (no we didn't check them with the install) and a set of broken headlights, but, the driver admitted to hitting a curb when moving at a good clip. I think your going to like it if you do large lots.

    Where are you located? What do you mean by the ability to use the wings in both straight and scooped mode? I thought the xp could do that? We do have a western dealer in town which would be nice for break downs.

    I have some decent lots now but next year I have a pretty good sized lot lined up and my little meyers wont keep up. How does it compair to a v plow?

    I think its better! You can move more snow per push and when you don't need the 10 foot you have 8 feet. Just remember the "wings" are fix at.......... I think its 28 deg. They don't swing in and out like the Western, they just move out to make the plow 8 to 10 feet.
    Have had a lot of Western Wide-out problems though. Not saying its a bad plow just lots of things to go wrong.

    I did not know they were fixed.

    Do you have any pictures of yours?

    We're both near Peoria.

    As the later posts imply, the Buyers plow wings are pitched forward and "fixed" at that angle, while the Blizzard/Western/Fisher wings will be parallel to the moldboard until extended, then will pitch forward to create the scoop.

    I use the blade in every imaginable orientation, except fully retracted. I only retract the wings for transport. When plowing, the wings are always either extended straight, scooped, or some combination.

    As for the wings I have customers that had blizzards and bent the wings several times the wings on the snow dogg are much heavier remember more moving parts makes more things to go wrong a customer wit a light pole and the Dogg wing still works try that with a blizzard all my customers would not go back to any other plow after owning the XP including a hard core Boss guy don't forget it is about $1000 cheaper too

    Awesome info. Thanks a lot.

    Any complaints about hooking up the plow?

    Think of it this way as well, the DD plows don't scoop any wider that 9', or any shorter either. With the XP you have an 8' scoop to a 10' scoop.

    They all have their plus and minus's. Personally I like the idea of the stainless above the rest but am still going back and forth between a V plow and an XLS/XP.

    Best of luck on your choice.
