    Nice looking plow! Just ordered a 9' one myself yesterday to compliment my 8.5 VF and 8.5 C-Plow.

    Cause the Hiniker dealer is 5 minutes from shop and the Blizzard dealer is 40 min

    Nice plow! We do not have any Hiniker dealers in our neck of the woods! Western/Boss/Fisher is all we have to choose from!

    On a side topic... Did you do anything special in mounting the frame bracket on that truck? I see some 2003-07 Silverado's with the lower valance notched where the mounting forks are. Yours appear normal. I was considering using my '03 2500HD to move my Hiniker to but don't want to chop up the plastic.

    Do you have any issues with clearance when mount/dismounting plow?

    Nice looking plow, I have been looking into them more, let us know how you enjoy it over the season

    Speedwing has too many moving parts, we have had nothing but issues with our blizzards

    Nice looking plow.
    I like my hiniker just fine so far.





    I picked up a used hiniker scoop this summer.

    Plowed twice with it.
    The two storms were real heavy/wet and didn't stack worth **** with the scoop.
    My sub has a hiniker V that stacks quite well.
    I'm assuming that the scoop edges were holding the plow down with the weight of the heavy snow?????
    Any body else plow with a scoop and can comment?

    Big Earl I see you have wear bars on your plow.


    Can you comment about them, pros/cons?
    Are they worth the $85 the dealer wants?

    No cutting required or clearance issues

    Yes put the curb guards on 2 reasons. 1. When you are fully angled and running a curb it will rub the lower outer edge without the guards. 2. The cutting edge will wear square (no smile) I can show you pics of cutting edges with and without curb guards and how they wear.

    Curb guards are worth their weight in gold , and 85 is a good price I paid 100 for mine.

    We're talking about two different things.


    After I posted I noticed they were curb guards.

    The wear bar is a different item that Hiniker sells.
