    I'd like to see the buttons on the Xtreme V fish-stik controller changed...with the V and scoop buttons put down bottom in place of the individual wing controls..

    I'd like to see a better connection to the wiring harness for the controller too..

    I'd like to see the "jacket" for the head gear come with every plow...work the cost into it.

    The lever for the locking pins feels a little flexible & could use a bit more leverage...and the rubber handle at the top keeps sliding off..maybe think about that and see what could be done..Not a huge deal, but sometimes the pins come out dry even pushing and wiggling the headgear..

    Invent a back-drag edge that lowers hydraulicly...one that has plenty of wear surface.... let it lower a good 4" below the front cutting edge....maybe put a small 6" rear facing wing at the ends of the back-drag edge so you can actually carry a good bit of snow. If weight is a concern, make the edge out of poly.

    Find a way to make the transmission in my truck shift from D to R and back with the push of a single button on my plow controller..maybe make it a trigger on the front part of the grip..I know there's a way..

    I will post more insane ideas as time goes on.

    Thanks.

    My only suggestion is one they should have done 10 years ago And may have caught alot of criminals. It STOP USING STICKERS AS VIN NUMBERS!. How hard is it to etch a vin number in the blade or rivet a metal plate with the number. The have been using peel off stickers for 10 years now.It is quite sad.The security guard if no help to anyone quite easy to get by that.

    I'd say we need to take action ourselves for our stickered models. Good call.

    Wouldn't need it if you store your plows in the garage..
