    Hey guys I know this was brought up before but i cant seem to find the post. Does anyone use ploy plows? How do they hold up under the stress of commercial plowing? Do they cost more or less than steel? I was asking about the straight and V blades. Thanks Rich

    I have run a poly plow for the last 8 years. I have had zero problems with the mould board. I find the snow does not stick to the plow like the steel ones.

    They are a little more costly but worth the extra.

    Western makes a poly V but I don't know of any one else.

    Thanks for the response Cet. I heard that the snow doesn't stick. I was looking at the poly figuring it would last a while. I just didn't know how it holds up with commercial plowing. Yes i saw that western makes the Poly V. I also like the new MVP Plus. Trying to find a dealer to see what it runs. Also one last thing, has anyone installed the plow them selves? I am pretty handy and my step brother owns a shop. Does the MVP come in pieces?

    We have installed a number of our plows. From Arctic, Blizzard, Western and a Fisher V. The Fisher was in pieces.

    It is quite easy to install. Really easy on the GM products.

    We bought 2, 810 Blizzards and a Fisher V in Chicago(or close by) and brought them back to Canada and installed all of them ourselves.
