    I am new to snow removal this year and I am going to buy a new boss plow to put on my 06 GMC 2500HD. I will be doing mostly residential with some commercial for the first year. I am hoping to expand from there into more commercial.

    My question:
    I want a v plow because of the benefits it offers but is there any benefits to having the regular power-V over the XT. I will probably buy the XT but was wondering if there is any downside to that plow over the V.

    On either plow get smart lock cylinders. The vxt will windrow and throw snow farther than traditional v.

    If you are doing mostly residentials then you will see no benefit.........except for your customers seeing you have one awesome plow hanging off the front.

    But the V-XT does throw an amazing amount of snow off to the side when you get up to speed.

    Thanks for the replys, I just want to make sure I get the right plow so I don't look back in a year or two and wish I would have spent the extra money.

    VX-T also has more carrying capacity in scoop mode. That alone made it worthwhile to me.

    I got the power V ...just because I do very little windrowing and it was also $300 cheaper.
