Meyer 7.5ft Super-V......Is it a good plow?

    Hey Guys.

    Sorry if this has been talked about before. I couldn't find anything recent about the Meyer 7.5 Super-V. I have a 2008 GMC Sierra 1500. I want a v plow for opening roads on lakes. Boss and Snowdogg 7.5 v plows are 700lbs. I think that is without mounts too. Meyer 7.5 super-v is less than 600 complete. I don't want to beat my truck up too bad with a heavy plow.

    I have heard that Meyer is making a better plow than they did in the past. Does anyone have experience with the Meyer 7.5 super-v?

    Thanks.

    i just had one installed on my nissan titan a couple weeks ago. i've only been able to use it on a couple driveways so far, but it performed great. i'm really loving the versatility of a V plow, the scoop function is awesome for cleaning up and stacking snow. i've only had to put it in V mode once so far, had a thigh high snow bank from the city plow i had to get through at the end of one of the driveways. it went through it like butter. the controls are really nice too. mounting/dismounting is really easy as well. so far i'm loving it.

    If you don't mind me asking...What was the total cost of the plow, including install?

    This looks like the plow for me. Only problem is that the closest dealer is 4hrs away.

    Thanks.

    4995 installed.

    4 hours is a long way to go if you have a problem...

    Yea. It is a long way. It's really my only option tho. I need a V plow for plowing on the lake. A Boss or Snowdogg V is more than I want to put on my truck. And upgrading to a 3/4ton isn't in the cards.

    But a 7hr round trip for warranty work is not really feasible either.

    Thanks again for the response.

    100 lb isn't going to make a difference. Put some timbres on it

    i hear ya. maybe check your local parts stores and see what they carry for meyer parts/products. that way, if you need something simple at least it could be had locally. it's a really nice setup though, it's impressed me so far.

    The Boss is 700lbs for just the plow. Not sure what the complete weight would be.

    Isn't the snow dogg in the 500 range?

    No I dont think so. It is also 700lbs. Not sure if that is the complete weight either. The Snowdogg is designed for "plow prep" 1/2tons.

    There is no such thing as a plow prep half ton.
    Mount adds 80 pds

    That is what Snowdogg says on their website. From what I understand is that is pretty much means a 3/4ton. ha.

    If mounts are 80lbs then it would be close to a 200lbs difference between Meyers Super-V and a Boss/Snowdogg.

    Meyer is less that 600lbs complete

    Ok. I thought they were. It says 582(complete) on their site. I thought that included mounts.

    Thanks.

    A couple of hundred pounds itn't going to break the camels back.
    As mentioned get a set of timbrens no matter what plow you go with. Then add counter weight. This will take weight off of the front axle.

    The only thing about a 7.5 Vee is in the ^ it's going to be narrower than your full size truck is, spilling the snow back under your wheels.

    You may want to think about a wider plow and or a bigger truck and a bigger plow.

    one thing i ran into was the dealers refusing to install a particular plow on my truck because the manuf. didn't recommend it in their "quick match" system. that's one reason why i didn't get a western hts, even though it's lighter than the meyer i have, western's quick match didn't recommend it for my make/model truck so the dealer refused to install one. i imagine you might run into the same thing with your 1500 with some dealers/manufacturers.

    in v mode, mine is still just wide enough to be wider than the truck..
