    The main reason for a poly is wet snow slides off easly instead of sticking.

    here is how i looked at it:
    poly pros: doesn't rust, snow doesn't stick to it, it's tough (those that worry about putting a hole in it are the same types that break forks off the hiniker mounts or other things that normally wouldn't break)

    poly cons: might be slighter higher prices, does fade over the years and gets brittle (after 10years)

    steel pros: lighter weight, easily paintable, repairable (for those that like to break stuff), can bolt/weld wings on much easier.

    steel cons: RUSTS, dents, paint rubs off easily

    thats what I see... I would go poly again in a heartbeat. how many plows do you see driving down the road with a clump of snow stuck to them; hint: (they are all steel plows)..

    The Hiniker V's: older steel V is a full trip, the new poly V is a trip edge. BIG Difference.
