    Looking at almost 6000.00 for new extreme v fisher stainless steal v-plow, or dealer offered last years ez-v used 3 times, plow was taken back from user, anyway 8 1/2 foot v would sell to me installed 3500.00 - 4000.00 + tax installed still with 2 year warranty. I really wanted the new stainless but looking at saving 2000.00 to 2500.00, what would everybody else do. I know this is an opinionated question, but do appreciate your guys opinions.:dizzy:

    Well, that does include installation, it was only used three times, and he is giving the warranty with it, the thing is pretty much a brand new plow. If it was me I would save the money and go for the slightly used plow. As long as there were no major dents, dings, and RUST. Now with the stainless plow your alleviating the threat of rust, which is a huge incentive. With saving that kind of money, you can think of yourself as starting out the season in positive numbers, rather than already in the negatives, lol.

    Well thats what I was thinking, I had one employee this year cost me close to 10,000.00, thank goodness he's gone. But anyway what I liked on the new fishers was the v joint, bigger pivot pin, no center rubber,new one has curved wear bar a v joint, and I guess the ez-v scrapes as good as the xtreme-v, but the ez-v is about 80 pounds lighter. Why does everything have pros and cons to make decisions so hard.

    Those decisions are really what makes and breaks a man, but you must press on. Listen, most of that stuff they tell you at the dealer is crap anyway, all the new features the new v-plow comes with. Sure the stainless steel option is nice thats for sure, but the rest of the features do not out weigh the savings of the used plow. Just the fact that you found a used plow with installation for such a great price is unbelievable. I tried to do that last year until I got fed up and bought a new one. I was on ebay trying to piece a plow together and save money, that didn't work. A lot more guys would have a used plow, only if they found the kind of deal that you found.

    I would look at the updated features between the two and if there isnt much difference, I would save myself a couple grand and go with the used plow especially if it comes with a 2 year warranty. But the other fact is a stainless steel will have minimal rotting issues down the road, I love mine. Good luck.
