    Just wandering what people like better Trip Edge or Trip Blade? I would never buy a trip blade I used on once and I hated it. So I only buy plows with a trip edge.

    I prefer a trip edge..... However Boss is the ONLY 7 1/2 V plow and it is a full trip.

    Trip edge won't " flop " forward on the wet and heavy snowfalls causing you to lose the snow you just worked so hard to move !! JMO

    Trip edge hands down! Why someone would want a plow that's not able to push heavy, wet sleep/snow/ice (which is usually what we get in NNJ), without dumping it is beyond me...:dizzy: Fisher Plows all the way!wesport

    I have owned a few plows and I have yet to own a trip edge..

    They both have there places( i guess) But I bet it's more a regional thing.
