    does anyone out there have any info on tri plows.I located a v plow for a very good price but he said it was missing some valve outside. he also stated that i could use my current set-up to run this.I currently have an older western cable/joystick setup. any info or is this even worth my time?

    The tri-plow was a trial plow. LOL Dont do it, parts are extremely hard to find. If your looking for used try craigslist, I find a lot of stuff there.

    tri plow

    stay away they were not any good new ,i sold them ! they pulled them the first year of production ,when the got in and lost a patent infringement lawsuit with boss. they were slow and the missing valve they were talking about caused a lot of problems .the hydraulics's were to complicated and over burdened . a lot of problem's with the double acting angle cylinder's .

    well thanks for the input guys. the guy was not the one who said it was a tri plow but he said it was just an older v plow. i assumed it was a tri plow because he said it was missing that valve that mounts to the outside. is there any other way to check, because if it is a tri plow then i will respect your response and continue to look.. once again thanks to all and happy plowing
