    I have a meyer plow, (straight). I would like to get the V plow. How similar is the hookup? Are they both totally different? I know the control pad would be different, but on meyers web site they only offer 2 different hookups. Anybody know?? Thanks

    The frame on your truck will work. The A-Frame on 99% of the meyer plows are 23.5" from center of ear to ear.

    Do a search on here to find out if you really want to buy a meyer V-Plow.

    Thanks for the help. I hope that doesnt mean that the V plows are no good. My buddy that I plow with has a boss V plow. For the lots we do a straight plow is almost double the work. I will look into though. Thanks again

    There has been a lot of discussion about the Meyer V plows before. A search will find you a lot of answers and opinions.
    They were recalled their first year into the bus., too weak.
    I thought I remember seeing a post last week or the week before about someone not being able to get one this year from their dealer because of constant problems, I may be wrong...but check it out, no matter what plow, it's a big investment

    It will pin right to your truck, but a new hydro pump is needed. They are not in the same class as boss or Western/fisher v plows. Or even hiniker for that matter. If you really want one, good luck, but IMO just install some wings, that should cut your plowing time way down.

    Do yourself a big favor,just buy a Boss. Its one fast V plow ,As you already know.Top it off with a Urethane edge,and your set.Its not cheap up front,but its reliable,and will save you so much time,it will pay for itself.I have 2 v's now,only regret is didnt buy one sooner.

    Not sure if you came across this thread in you research so here it is. In this thread you'll find the opinion of the only member that admits to owning a Meyer V and what he thinks of it. Again, like Dino said the Meyer V is really in a class by itself (in a bad way).

    Thanks for the link. I was searching but came up empty. Just out of curiosity I stopped to day to get some info from a local dealer. It works out to $3400.00 if I buy the parts I need, and $4200.00 for a complete setup. I think I am gonna lean towards an 8.2 Boss. It might not be this season, but for next season. For now I am gonna just try to find a pair of wings on ebay to speed things up.

    Good call to stay away from the Meyer V and to go with a Boss instead.
