    We have a number of Western wide outs and are pretty happy with them but there are times that I would like a plow with more "containment" than the WWO. The snowy rev hd seems to offer this. Any opinions or reviews?

    Thanks,

    The grass is not nicer on the other side.

    I owned the snoway 2011 v plow =junk.
    The 2011 the shop sold many of had issues also.
    The new 2013 revs the shop has sold. Multi electric motors replaced, lift ram bushings break and had one come in strapped up and dragging the ram. More was broke underneath than bushings.

    Snoway=junk or at least many service repairs. Down pressure is great but the rest of the plow has issues. Always coming up with new fixes, so they are trying but the fixes still have issues.

    Stay western if that's what you like/have. I went Boss and won't switch.

    I have 3 Sno Ways, 8' straight blade, a 28 V, and a brand new 29R. They are not junk.

    Keep a eye on your 29r lift ram bolts/bushings. Takes about a year to start wearing or a heavy snow year. No warning and not very visable but a critical component that has failed multi times in under 2 yrs of use.

    If the operator pays attention there the is a lift delay once the bushings start to wear signifacantly and you can catch it before it starts workng on the lift link or bellcrank. Yes it is a maintainance item and there is a bushing hardware kit available.

    While they don't mention the bushings in particular in the manual no one lists every wear point. It is something we advise customers to watch, we look at during every service and is covered in training classes. RARELY do we see units needing bushings replaced in a single season.

    From the Snoway Owners manual;

    IMPORTANT:
    1. Inspect plow assembly including sub frame for any
    damage or excessive wear. Replace parts as necessary.
