    Hello, new user

    I am thinking about changing my 8' Meyers to a vee on my new- to- me truck.

    I have had a SnoWay 9' 25D and I liked it and miss the 9': :cry:

    I would like to know the pros and cons and if SnoWay is going to be redesigning their vees
    because I would wait to see them.

    I like Fisher's height.


    Thank you :salute:
    Philip

    I'd like to see what snoway's new V's are going to look like too. I would think they are going to get rid of the whole fixed middle section, because for windrowing the plow really must suck unless you are flying. Anyway, if they don't it is still a V. Can't hurt to update an old product though. I'm sure it will be nice. Maybe Tom will chip in and tell us what is going on.

    One thing I dont like about my 8.5 Extreme V is the back dragging, its horrible and SnoWay has the option of down pressure even with their V. I have never used or even seen a snow way V but I'm sure it similar in performance.

    the DP adds no extra physical weight to the plow. It works by applying down pressure to the lift cylinder. It actually attempts to pick up the front of your vehicle. So it has 2 good uses. It provides more pressure on the cutting edge and transfers more weight to your rear wheels for better traction. If i remember right it was something like 30% weight transfer.

    I know the DP works great. On my diesel dually it tries to pick up the front end on it and it weighs close 4500 Lbs on my 2 front wheels

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean by that.

    Try asking Toby4492 for a new Snoway full line catalog. Has all the unit specs. you can also go to the SW site and check the municipal specs. it's all there.:nod:

    TOM send him the catalog not the mailer;)

    DP adds 250 psi to the wearedge down force, do a PSI comparison with anybody else and see where they stand. A 1000lbs plow would have to only have 4 sq in on the ground to match this. Lifts the front of my 2500 Ram 1 3/4 inches above normal unloaded ride height.

    By attack angle, I mean angle of cutting edge to pavement.

    What is the weight equivelant dp adds to the cutting edge?
