    Just got done with the install. The customer loves it. This thing is going to plow some serious snow.

    Sweet truck and plow. Those wings add 22" to the plow for a total of 10'4" LawnPro.

    Very very nice plow! Don't see many rigid snow deflectors...are they better than the rubber ones?

    I was looking at getting an XT straight blade, then I saw the price for the cutting edge...:dizzy:
    If I remember correctly it was around $400. That's double for 2 more inches!!

    I had a rigid deflector on my Snoway back in the 90's,.... and I didn't like it for several reasons,.. 1) They are too narrow,... IMO, a deflector needs to be at least 12" wide to work effectively, at least in my area with dry-fluffy snow. 2) They break at -30° or colder if you ever bump into anything with them. So, if you don't constantly deal with lots of deep, dry, fluffy snow, and/or plow at very cold temps, then they might be ok.

    We dont sell a heck of a lot of the poly deflectors. They seem to add more to the curl of the plow vs. preventing snow blow back on your windshield. The rubber deflectors just seem to work better.

    And as far as the cutting edge, this one runs $466 (bolts not included). OUCH!!

    Where can you drive that on the road legally? If you angle it all the way can you get it down to where it's narrower than 8 feet?
