    Hello,
    Been plowing for a good number of years now, and I've decided my next plow will be a V-plow. Only problem is deciding between the MVP Plus and the Power V. Now I know that both have their pros and cons, which have been posted here over and over again, but I'm wondering about each plows ability to stack snow high. According to the video comparisions on Boss' website, their cylinder lift system not only allows for a higher maximum lift height while transporting the plow, but it also allows for higher stacking.

    So my questions are: 1) Does the Boss offer a greater maximum lift height over the MVP and 2) Boss the Boss stack better than the MVP.

    Thanks
    Ryan

    and 2) Boss the Boss stack better than the MVP.Yes, it also allows for higher stacking.

    SnoFarmer...I realize that I already answered my own questions, but remember that their (Boss') comparisons/statements are one-sided and like to have both sides of every story.

    Thanks

    I have to disagree. The direct cylindar may lift your plow up higher during transport (which I don't get anyway, that just means less air is getting to the radiator). Your still limited with the stacking by the cylinder. My lift arm is maxed out but I can still stack over a chain linked fence. My "old school" chain allows for flexibility where your cylinder does not.

    The blade(plow) is allowed to raise higher than the ram can lift it. Allowing for stacking higher.

    On my OLD chain lift, lol!! It just bounced up and down and swayed side to side with every little bump in the road.
    Using your thinking your plow could only go as high as your ram too:dizzy:

    Cheek out the pics look at the bottom of my plow it is almost as high as the hood of the truck.. http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=33307

    "The direct cylindar may lift your plow up higher during transport (which I don't get anyway, that just means less air is getting to the radiator"

    This would be the same for every plow out there. Just swing, lower, or, ^ the plow for air flow.
