    Winter equipment wanted to sell me the Xtendor guards but they are higher price and don't wrap around. These ones are meyer and it says they are 6" tall (same as my edge) and the holes are 3" apart and 1.5" down. I'm pretty sure they'll work but didn't want to spend the money to have them not fit. Any info appreciated!

    Just drill some new holes if you have to.

    I run the Winter Xtendors (orange), on all my plows (4) Fisher EZ-V, & will be putting them on the new XV I pick up monday. Well worth the $$$.

    Is the Xtendor a bolt on for the Xtreme V or do you need to drill? BTW did you ever live in Fort Ord, CA?

    we use them ( plow guard /extender) at the county i work for on the Myers plows we have they just about double the life if not more of the cutting edges we also use the ones that go in the middle well worth the money in my book they run better on curbs to they don't want to kick up on top the sloped curbs either, not that you should be hitting them :rolleyes:

    Careful on the v plows.
    I added a set of the winter extendors to my MVP at work.
    They work great on the outsides.
    In the center, woops. Cutting edge is wore more in the center now and uneven...

    On a V, you should add carbide near the hinge as well.

    I just put them on my western V. Is one side in the middle enough? Or put one on both sides? They have not been on long enough to see uneven wear.

    For me, Yes, been running them for years. Used to change cutting edges once a year now it's every 3-5 years. No more cutting edge smile either.
