    I found a web site with Hiniker plows on it. Then I did a search here. Well, needless to say after reading what everyone had to say I wont be wasting anymore of my time.

    Thanks

    A new dealer just opened here in my area he is selling Hinikers and said a lot of their problems have been fixed. He tool his Diamond off for a Hiniker that is how confident he is. Well at least I got a plow for a very cheap price. A Diamond plow that is.

    How cheap? Might be worth a drive from the prices I have seen around here.

    I wouldn't pass up Hiniker so fast, despite what alot of guys say on here, not that I don't respect their opion, but I feel alot of them are speaking from past exsperiece and may have left a bad taste in their mouth. I own a 8.5' Hiniker that has given me no problems since I bought it and I can't say enough about their hook up.

    When users of this board have bent multiple plows, and the company doesn't stand behind them. Then Hiniker goes to the dealer and asked the dealer to ask the customer to stop talking bad about the product. It brings me to the conculsion that the products are junk, and the company is run by a bunch of Jerks that won't stand behind there product.

    I agree with you Geoff but as I was told by this dealer as well as Coastal Metal Fab up near you, Hiniker claims they have taken care of the problems. I guess time will tell. I would not buy one but maybe if I was a dealer and had an unlimited supply of parts. I am gonna stop today and see what Diamond stuff he has left. I will let you know. I want to pick up a few things myself.

    Geoff he has a lot of Diamond stock still. What are you looking for? The one thing he does not have is any steel defelctors:( I am gonna pick up some parts though. Hopefully some powerpacks, lights, cylinders, etc. Only has a couple blades left and a few various frames mostly Dodge and Chevy. Send me an e-mail and I will let you know what I can get you.
