    Looking for some opinions on the best wiper blades that some have found for plowing.

    I have bought 2 different sets since 2010 and still cant find a pair that I like for plowing. I was out all night and most of yesterday plowiing the "blizzard"
    ' that we got here in NH.
    I am not expecting miracle but the ice just sticks and freeze up on the winshield with whatever I buy. Any suggestions? Maybe it is the defrosting system of this truck (2010 f350 diesel)? Been plowing for 30 years and never remember having the icing problems like I've got with this truck.

    Any suggestions

    Ive, always been a fan of bosch Icon blades. I would install a new set every two years, even though they still worked fine, there were just some streaking then. I seen these heated blades in Dallas this summer though and they looked real intresting. If i remember right once you bought the kit replacement blades were only like 25 a pop so right in line with other premium blades.

    Well I used to use the anco but no matter how old they always froze up on me. Yes cheap and easy. I just put on a pair if Michelin stealth and so far am fairly happy with them

    When I was young and stupid, I tried out all the different fancy wiper blades. My conclusion now is that it doesn't matter, the best ones are the regular cheap ones.
