    I bought my first MVP yesterday i believe it was built in 2001, I am wondering if there were any problems with the late 90's - early 00's that I need to look at before we get any snow, or weak areas that I should reinforce. Thanks, any information about these would be great. Hopefully it will be a good plow for a while.

    Is it the ultramount style?

    I'd carry an extra controller with me....heard that the early 2000's controller had wiring issues in the controller itself.

    I'm glad you like the V Mike, Hopefully it wont take me to long to get used to running it. How long will the rubber cutting edge in the center last, do they last as long as the rest of the cutting edge? Thanks for the replys.
