    Guys, I'm looking for deflector pics for the EX-V plows. Not the factory ones, but DIY ones that cover the center section as well. Someone posted one a while back, but I can't find it. Thanks, Nick.

    I would like to see a pic of a metal one for a V... I don't think the rubber works that well.

    :confused: huh? Where do you get that? Metal doesn't flex, and it would need to extend past the blades edge further then that of a rubber one to be effective....or as effective as a rubber one. Damage when stacking comes to mind as well. I run one on the XLS, I have no complaints. If I were to ever to go with a home made one, or replace the rubber; I would go with a heavier rubber for the sake of speed (30 mph+), but that's it.

    PM Pete, he has run it now for 3 seasons. He can give you his opinion.

    I have heard that the foils made from flat steel work the best. Just wondering if anyone has tried to make a steel foil of any sorts for a V. I can't go 10mph with mine and snow buries the windshield. Plowing roads and long pushes is a pain.

    I can't take the credit on that one, that was Bacwudzme's doing all on his own. He did a great job on it.

    I've heard that about the OEM ones. I only know a hand full of guys who've run a deflector on them. All have either fabricated their own, or later modified the OEM one.

    Most of the ones I know of are fabricated as well. I have heard nothing but good things about how they work and no snow comes onto the windshield. I've been toying with the idea of trying to make one for a V. Was hoping someone else on here had tried already so I didn't have all the trial and error...lasyness on my part.

    I prefer to think of that as using a proven method lol.
