    hello everyone, i saw the new plow controller at the dealer's. have anyone used that other than the hand held or wirless unit. the guy told me that it is different than western's .since you have to push forward to lower the plow and backward to raise it.still wondering if i should get it or not,it costs around 225 dollars, do you think it might be worth the money

    If I was going SnoWay, I'd go with that new hand held wireless unit.
    No Wires, so you don't have to drill holes in the truck.

    I have the wireless. Works very nice! Only thing is I wish I could reverse the up and down. One other note. If the batteries are not strong enough it wont control the plow. The remote will appear to be on (light is on) but the plow wont work.

    We have used them all, and are very, very happy with the remote. Change the batteries at the beginning of the season and you are good to go. Search this site for a lengthy discussion about the remote.

    It would nice if you could figure a way of using that remote with other plow brands.<img src="http://www.plowsite.com/images/smilies/drinkup.gif">

    You probably could, since most of the plows essentially consist of relays that kick a valve and/or the pump to make a cylinder move. I suspect however that the manufacturers would be less than enthusiastic about hanging someone else's control on their machine.
