    thas what I was going to do they told me it would be 100 for the service and 330 to put a snow deflector on it might do the deflector myself and save a 100 have you ever done a snow deflector. If so how hard is it it doesn't look to hard to do thanks

    Deflector is not hard at all. Cut it to fit. The instructions tell you what size for your blade.
    Clamp it to the plow. Then drill your holes. Put your bolts in.
    The center piece is the only tricky part. Make sure you leave enough slack in to to pucker up when you go to scoop. I didn't and mine gets stuck between the wings.

    They send you you a free tube of KY jelly? My new VXT will be here this week in the crate for me to install and the snow deflector was $100.00 add on! I will not advertise openly for a dealer, but you can cantact me privately for the info. MUD

    I just don't want to hear some wine baby cry pot pitching a fit because "Joe" is advertising for this guy and not that guy. I have learned over the years that even with the "in" that I have, there are no big price breaks! MUD
