    What is a good Moldboard Height for a plow and does 2 to 3 inches make a difference or not. Because this is how alot of brand s are. Also does the Moldboard Height kinda depend on what type of vehicle the plow will be on?

    I believe 32" is pretty common for a 7.5 or 8 ft. plow. Lighter duty plows for personal use are usually smaller in height. Heavier duty plows are bigger. A higher moldboard height can cause overheating on a truck, but there are ways around that.

    Iwould say height will depend on what kind of plowing you are doing? If you are plowing large lots or roads the higher plow will be beneficial, if your doing short driveways or small lots the shorter models will be fine. Keep in mind the higher the moldboard means heavier plow in most cases, so if you have a 1/2 ton, weight may be of a concern.

    Residential plows come in at around 26".

    Commercial plows for pickups are anywhere from 28" -32".

    Boss has a v-plow that is flared that reach 37" up.
