    Are you comparing a Sport duty to a Homesteader?

    A sport trips like any other full size plow with actual coiled trip springs. No rubber bands like a Homsteader.

    On the trip and on the return yes. Just as most any other full trip plow.

    For light work yes. The sports are actually rather rugged for their construction and hold up very well for being classified as a "personal use" plow.

    Now would I plow 20 commercial no tolerance lots with one? No, as that's not what they're designed for, but for a couple here and there it's more than up to the task.

    A sport would be a fine choice then. More than enough for those jobs.

    Like a 720LT for example? Both would be comparable in most regards except for the moldboard itself. The 720 will be a steel moldboard while the sport will be only available in poly.

    But steel or poly is operator choice and dealer support would be more important that the other differences between them.

    What vehicle would you be installing it on?
