    Hi all,
    In my neverending search to finally find a plow I can afford I am looking at some used commercial use V plows. I need to know what to ask about and get pics of as this is an online transaction and may need to drive aways to pick it up.
    Where are the most common points to look at, ie hinge/center pin etc. The owner said the truck mounts appear to be worn as the "aren't as tight as they were" Does the mount holes in the rt3 get worn out or does the mount on the blade also cause it to get loose?(I'll be getting a new mount)
    I would appreciate any input from the commercial guys whose plow see alot of use and abuse.:salute:
    Thanks,
    Kurt
