    I got ahold of them for a 9.2 steel V-XT with smartlock and it would have been $5300 shipped to a loading dock in Defiance, OH. So shipping would have only been about $210. When I get around to buying a plow it will be from them!!!

    a little on the high side...unless you are going to that dealer for everything then it'll work out.

    I got quoted $4300 + $230 (SmartLocks)+ tax= about $4825....plus install... Install depends on how backed up they are. I was quoted an additional $250 but had someone offer to do it for free if I helped....so it turns out to be a great deal for me......toooo bad I may not get it...maybe a Meyer V2 instead (and I must have them install it to cover the warranty).

    If the $4300 is for a VXT that is cheap.

    My guess is that 4300 was for a regular v, not a VXT....

    if this qoute is from mr plow then you are probably getting last years new stock that he has and also sounds like this price is for a standard v as well

    Yupp! My father has had Meyer all of his life.... He bought a new one in like...hmmm I'd say 1981 and sold it to one of my current competitors. One pump and many repaints/edges later it still is in use as his main plow(s cause he sold him one new and one old).... I think I may... I'm not sure. No customer cares about the plow brand/color as long as it works!.... and yes it is pricing for a regular V....I don't require a VXT but may put it on my next truck (my diesel I'm working on a deal with).

    A lot of people say that....what I like is the fact that where they fail is predictable. It's controlled failure. The other plows that we have dealt with fail....and realllllllyyyy fail. We can fix meyer plows in a parking lot at 2 am with a basic mechanics set and a flashlight....a couple hours off of a truck is WAY dif. than losing a truck from the route. So we like meyer....and they aren't as tough on the front end (other than shocks/load bearers b.c. of weight)

    LOL FUNNY my dad is the same stubborn way and i started my first 5 years of commercial plowing with the same meyer blade and pump my dad used since 1978 but i got tired of spending money to get it working every year and got the boss and wonder to this day how i managed to plow with that old meyer given meyer is a good plow but it got me started the boss is keeping me here

    and the only thing ive done to the plow is change the fluid and grease the vertical hinge pin

    Most plows are made with similar quality now anyways. I believe that choice of plow is more so about habits of the driver. Boss is built like a tank, but doesn't give if you are rough...so it comes out to more $$ in the front end for a guy like me. For some of my guys, the boss would be fine. I tend to tackle big jobs head on, and I am rough with hitting/pushing full piles. The difference in engineering is what makes me want the meyer. I do a lot of removal or high stacking, and try to get it done with my plow rather than bring in a loader to every little lot that I have. The Meyer has hydraulic return (full hydraulic control). It allows me to lift my way out and work out of any pile I get stuck in... I like it since I am used to backhoe operation and being able to "scoot" out of being stuck by "walking the unit. I think I will give Meyer my business for now... It has been good for us in the past and hasn't nickle and dimed us. IF I have a problem, I will be down to Boss and Snow Dogg for plows. I have used boss (not owned) and liked it, but I like to go other routes to see what works for me (rather than just follow everyone else). The VXT should be a really high quality product. I feel the V2 will be just as good when it comes to the workmanship....Meyer worked out their controller issues....after mannnnnnyyyy years. So yeah! I'm going Meyer?! and if it is a PITA then Boss and if that is PITA for me back to Snow Dogg! (and then I will give in to my arch enemy....western...can't give in to it....won't do it....hopefully)

    You have fun with that then. The rest of us will be running Boss plows making money while you play mechanic in the freezing nasty.
