    Here are pis of a couple of Mid-Weights installed this past week. The Poly is on a 2007 Silverado 1500 and The Steel is on a 2009 F-150. The Ford seemed to handle it a bit better but Front Timbrens were also installed.

    No deflector on the Ford? Nice looking trucks, and plows.

    They are brand new and NOT proven! After selling the "Noway" Revs last year and regretting every minute of it, I refuse to sell a first season plow until they are proven. Unless of course the customer "demands" it. Also, the mid-weights are defiantly built heavier than the HTS.

    Not yet, wants to try it out first snowfall and then possibly pro-wings and a deflector.

    I dont know if you have looked at the specs but both plows are the same, except for some things.
    http://www.westernplows.com/specifications.asp?product=midweight#view
    midweight has 2 inch longer rams and is heaver then that hts, and the midwight is one inch smaller at full angle then the hts,other wise they are the same, i just think the hts is designed better cuz of where everything is placed ie. ribs and power bar. i think tho that western wouldnt of made this plow into production unless it was good enough to meat there standards.

    Western/DD has not disappointed me yet with a plow... However they did make that darn first generation poly-caster! I do think the HTS will be just fine but better safe than sorry for this year!
