    Does anyone have experience with both the old trip blade style c-plow (what I have) and the new poly skinned trip edge blade? I really like the newer blade and have been thinking about upgrading to the new style.

    Yes, I have used both. What is your question?

    I heard that the hydraulics are quicker. But generally overall impressions on new v old. I like how the side markers don't trip with the blade now and the poly skin as my steel skin needs painting, again.

    I'd say its a little quicker but I don't know for sure. I like the poly for the same reasons that you said and its very nice not having the guides fold with the plow.
