    that can be fixed with a welder if your handy with one. Not a bad looking plow

    I was really expecting much worse. If it operates good and you don't see any cracks anywhere else i wouldn't hesitate if the price is right!

    yes i am actual;ly very handy with a welder just worried if it may have caused any other internal damage and he wants 1700 with harness and controller does that sound like a decent price and when i go look at it what lse should i look at to make sure there was no other damage because of the incident just worried me cause i know these things just dont split like that must have been a pretty hard hit right ?

    That was absolutley a hard hit. I'm not saying don't buy it, but there are a lot of those plows for sale on this site all the time with no damage. Price seems cheap though...tough choice.

    I would be more concerned buying the truck it was on then the plow. I wouldn't fix anything, it's the cutting edge that does all the work. If the plow is straight then it looks like a good deal to me.

    The damage ok run with it. The thing i would do is put that plow in scoop and check the lower hinge for broken welds. Those plows are known to break along the hinge cause lots of damage.

    Have the seller hook it up. If it moves smoothly and doesn't stick or jerk, do like Morrissey said.
