    Well we installed our first Mega Blade V yesterday. I am very impressed with this plow. The customer has owned both Boss and Western V's and he said this is the best put together plow he has seen. They were very impressed with the Pro Control for this plow. He decided to go with the 9" Scoop Wings because they do large parking lots and he wanted the extra width. He also wanted the snow deflector. Which I think looks wicked on this plow.

    Installed on F350 and had no problem handling this plow.

    looks very nice! i noticed that in scoop mode and left angle, the blade ends arent touching the ground? even in straight mode in the 1st pic, there seems to be a little gap under the whole thing.

    Probably my crappy asphalt installation. Pretty uneven.

    Good looking plow, except the ugly light bar. I'm considering a Sno-way for my next plow but those light bars are nasty looking IMO. I know it seems like I'm nitpicking but I just can't look past it. Other than that, I'd love to own one sometime in the near future.

    I thought the light bar was Fugly as well, that was then, now it's grown on me, particularly after a little modification.:D I'll try to get B&B to post a picture for me.

    The light bar doesn't push the snow.:D I have had guys say the same thing but they can look past the lights considering Sno Way's standard features.

    Out of curiousity, why aren't the wings as tall as the moldboard?

    Nice looking plow overall.

    Just talked to Sno Way. I guess we have an adjustment we need to make to have the blades sit flat.

    So it's not the blades fault it's mine. Going to get it fixed.

    The ambers and painted pump cover are a definite improvement to the overall appearance of the light tower. :waving:

    nice alterations basher. i think the tower would look much better with a different style light completely.
