    I have a dodge 2500 2010 with a mm2 vee plow. No snow yet but I never had a vee and feel kind of uncomfortable using it. I really only do small parking lots and driveways. The straight blade was so easy, this vee has too many buttons. Can I just sell my vee plow, (Just plow ) and hook up a straight blade using my already installed harness. If so I can just sell this v and get the 9' straight and be happy. thanks guys and happy plowing.

    You can do things with a V you can't do with a straight blade! Keep it!

    Holy cow man, this is a first! Give it a season. Once you figure out how/when to use the functions you will be amazed with the time you save. Every lot or drive is different but the versatility of the V plow is a bonus, don't give it up!

    Does your controller have the mode button, or is a new plow like the truck?

    mm2 v vs straight

    This is a brand new plow.
    My old straight blade had a up down left right stick. Very easy.
    This handheld controller has about 7 or 8 buttons.
    I cant just shift the plow left or right. Each wing has a button and to bring each side in you have to hit button twice, depending on where it is.
    It just seems as though it might be very time consuming. Is there a controller that will allow me to use the plow as a straight blade or do I have to move each side individually?
    Thanks for everyones time.

    You can use it like a straight blade.... Get one wing fully retracted, the extend the other wing completely, then you can use the "left" and "right" buttons and it will work just like a straight blade

    If its a new plow then you can operate as a straight blade too!
