    I was checking out the sites of Boss and Western. These obviously seem to be the industries leading manufacturers along with Fisher i think. Anyways the videos on Western's site sold me for sure over teh Boss plows. If i do get a new plow, as of now I would definitely go with the Western, possibly the wideout except thos wings seem they may present more possibilities for breakage. I think they definitely have the superior mounting system.

    From someone who has used both Boss and Western, which do you like better?

    I think that the Boss RT3 and Western Ultramount are just as fast and easy as each other. The Boss might be a little easier, but like the video says the Western has no electrronics to worry about. They both beat the old ways! As far as the wideout is concerned, I almost bought a Blizzard 810 and IMO the supposedly extra effiiciency of the Power Plow is more than offset by all the extra moving parts as comparied to a v plow.

    i like the boss V and thats what i have right now. i also like the western straight blade which ive used a few times.

    the only thing i dont like about the new boss plows is the lack of a chain, call me old school or what ever i just like a chain.

    with that said i think my next plow will be a western because finding the old boss plows with chain lifts is pretty hard now a days

    I love my boss. takes 30 secs to hook up and its a very strong mount and the plow is very strong as well. The only other plow I would consider is the blizzard 810

    I love the v plow, my new western mvp plow controller, or some electrical gremlen has sidelined me twice. most recently last night.dealer is 50 miles away, costs 70 bucks just to take it in. as far as which plow, I would suggest who is closest. in hindsight Boss dealer is 25 miles closer. when the western is working, it is sweet.
