    I have the same plow and have been happy with it. It really excels on smooth asphalt at speed, really throws the snow.

    Have you had any problem with the jack so far, I have been hearing complaints about the jack. Also if you don't mind me asking what did you pay for it with tax and everything?

    It seems like these plows are really starting to become popular.

    Last January I paid $5198.00 installed, not a lot of dealers near by for me in Kansas so I probably paid more than most. The jack is cheesy but it does the job, just have to remember to have the handle facing forward and lots of chain slack.

    yeah it does work very well.

    my only concern is the A-frame. come this spring i will have my buddy whos a welder by trade beef it up. i plan on getting the wings for it next year and doing a lot more commercial lots.

    have you tried stacking snow with it yet? how did the snow flap on top of the plow work out with that? I think mine will break with alot of snow?

    its pretty tough, i stacked snow pretty high in the parking lot and everything was good. my buddy was leaning on it today for like an hour and after he got up it went back to normal.

    ummmm... im not to sure i would for heavy commercial use, but i do 3 good size lots and im not worried about anything.

    like i said the A frame seems to be the only problem spot for heavy commercial use. but as stated im going to have it beefed up next spring before the wings go on and next winter i do plan on using it for some pretty big lots.

    TOM'S, mine(EX85) shattered second time out with it. Wasn't from stacking though, hit some ice, tripped on curb and top hit the bank. Completely shattered the entire deflector all the way across. Other than that I have been real happy with the plow since.
