    I know they are brand new, but has anybody had any kind of experience or seen them in person and had any thoughts about them?

    SnowEx is owned by DD, basically you are buying a grey Fisher or Western. Will be same wiring, fleet flex.

    I've only seen the SX V at shows, my first impression was meh just another DD product until I the mount and direct lift caught my eye. The plow appears to be built very well, I prefer a direct lift and the mount is very similar to the BOSS mount. The SX locking pin system is nice because you can operate them both from one side of the plow. Another nice thing is you can remove the horns in the truck mount easily like a Western.
    Aboot 2min into this vid you'll see how the mount works.
    The SX V wood be my second choice, first being BOSS.

    It may lift higher depending on where a chain lift plow has his chains connected but a direct lift is restricted on how high it can free float up when stacking because of the cylinder. Where a chain lift just keeps getting more slack in the chain.

    Time oot..... Chain lifts stacking ability are limited by the stops on the gear are they?
    Running Chain lifts for decades then going to a direct I see no disadvantage in the stacking ability's of a direct lift. There may be a few inches difference between the two so IMO it a moot point. The operator and snow's moisture content plays in the stacking ability as mulch of not more than type of lift.
    Now on to short chaining to get home, the chain does have an advantage since you don't have to use a strap as you wood with a direct lift. However if chain mounting point or the chain fails you'll need to use a strap.
    Plow bounce while driving is not an issue at any height with a direct lift where a chain lift you need to be on the stops on the head gear to prevent bouncing. Those same stops limit the stacking ability for those who may have already forgot aboot that.....

    LOL..... The wooden spoon is a double edged weapon and must be used with extreme caution.......

    Snow Ex does have a pretty good presents on the Front Range from Pueblo to Cheyenne with one dealer on the western slope in Eagle. I think Horizon is the distributor in Co (could be wrong) http://www.horizononline.com/stores/colorado and if a dealer doesn't have a plow on the floor to look at the distributor should. They have store in Littleton and the Co Springs.
