    I'm leaning toward the VXT but we'll see how deep my pockets are by the fall.. They cut my ours at ESPN so I have to bust my ass this summer to save up as much money as I can. If not, I'll find a MM2 and wait another year for a Boss.

    Instead of cutting your hours they should cut Chris Berman's

    Just saw this now, I paid $6500. It has surface rust and scratches in some places but I will be getting it repainted within 2-3 years.

    Update. been really busy with work and wasn't able to plow this winter.

    I've decided to do a budget build. Bought a FIsher MM that needed some work. My plow guy knew someone getting rid of a brand new mm2 pump/motor and acccesories for 600 so I had to jump on it. It's still not complete. Here's what I got so far. By the time I get this thing sandblasted/ painted, I'll have about $1500 invested into this project,

    "New" Plow. It is in pretty good shape. Olny thing wrong with it was a crack in the A-frame and some rust. I was very surprised not to find any rot. The plow is about 10 years old and was starting to show its age. It was taken care of very well over the years.

    I couldn't pass up a good deal. I priced it out and I saved about $700.

    Didn't the sehp come with the plow you bought? Or was it due to be changed?
