    Hey everyone,

    I finally was able to see a VX95 demo this weekend at a local fair and I'm sold. Even my wife was amazed at the price for this plow compared to others $4700 (I know of a place that has them cheaper) since we walked by the Fisher display who had a 7 1/2' HT going for $4600.

    Anyways, In the brochure the controller looks like you'd need two hands to push the buttons in order to get it to Scoop or V? Am I incorrect on this or do you need to push both side buttons at the same time to get the wings to work together? I didn't look at the controller that the truck had ( I was too busy watching the demo) but this is really the only downfall I can find.

    Thanks

    Scoop and V are two-fingered, although with the way I hold the controller it's pretty easy (index finger and middle finger hit the buttons).

    Straight blade is single-button - it's the middle of the LEFT or RIGHT pad.

    We didn't want to go crazy with buttons, so we kept it simple. I haven't had anyone complain yet, but I know people like what they are used to.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    I'm sure I'd get used to it pretty quick. I still haven't used a V plow so I don't have any old habits yet!

    I was amazed at the thing when I saw it. Very solid looking piece with fast hydro's. Me and another guy (who I didn't know) were both very impressed. He said to the salesman, what does this cost like $7000, when the salesmen said $4700 he literally asked where to sign!

    Those are some great prices. Honestly I'll probably end up picking one up in the middle to end of the season. Thanks!
