    Wanting to Trade: Westerm 8'6" MVP for straightblade

    I have a Western 8'6" MVP ultramount, do not know what year it is, anyone willing to trade for a straight blade, I bought the truck last April with the plow. I do not plow commercially, I just do a few driveways for relatives so I feel that this heavy plow is just to much for my truck, is there a big weight difference between the V plow and the straight blade? I don't even know if it is even possible to switch between the two, I live in the Milwaukee Wi area so if anyone is interested let me know. Sorry if this is a stupid thread but I do not know anything about plows.

    I will get some good pictures tomorrow morning after I plow my driveways because we are getting nailed up here in WI tonight and tomorrow!

    I just noticed that you have an ultramount. While that;s the mount I have on my truck, I'm using a conversion kit and am running an older Unimount plow. That probably wouldn't work out.

    If you were interested in selling outright, let me know.
