    All three have their good and bad points, probably choose which ever dealer I felt most comfortable with.

    Vees aren't as applicable in that area, Snoway Revolution series either the Revolution 9'1", 8'10" 29R, or 8' 26R depending on vehicle.;)

    That is of course if you feel the dealer can service your needs.

    I always suggest going with a plow that the dealer gives you the best support. When you have a problem it mostly comes down to dealer support!

    That is my 2cents and 25 plus years of experience.

    Advise:
    1 )Get good insurance
    2) Don't depend on "income" from plowing
    3) get out of the business while you still can

    really though its not so much about the brand of plow but more about dealer support. What brand has the best dealer? Someday something will go wrong and if the dealer is not there when you need it most what good is the plow....

    Have a good backup plan. Sup for a few years. Having a plow and a truck does not make you good at plowing. Learn how to plow. And slowly get afew accounts. And try not to spread yourself. It's not what will break. But when it break at 3 a.m. who do you call. How do I finish. How much is it going to cost me to fix and how fast can it be done. Just my. ¢2

    I love my Z
