    Here's the deal I'm looking at getting another plow truck for my small company. The truck I have my eyes on is a 2006 Ford F-350 Regular Cab with a 5.4liter V8. My local Ford dealer says he can sell me a Western plow for the truck at cost because he's the one selling the truck. My original plan has been to out fit a newer Ford with a Fisher Xtreme V Stainless 9.5. What do you guys think of going with a Western MVP instead of the Fisher? Which Western, Poly or Steel Mold board?

    I know, I know use the search feature. I did and I want more specific answers from true personal experience.ussmileyflag

    I here western was a better A frame. Go with the poly 9.5 then the blade won't rust on you. Here's the place where I just got my 8.5 from. They sell both fisher,western, meyers, and blizzard. Ask them at Stork's Automotive 1(610)488-1450. They where a big help to me.:waving:

    Nice thing about the mvp is you can swap skins if you dont like the steel/poly you can swap em out

    Really? That is nice feature I just bought a MVP Plus steel. I am thinking that a 9'6" maybe too large for that truck with only a 5.4 V8 motor... just a thought though

    That was my thought too. I'd opt for a 8'6" on that rig.

    Man I really want the 9.5 should I look for a V10 powered SuperDuty? This will only be a plow rig I don't plan to daily drive it.

    I have a 9.5 pro plus v on my 2000 f 250 with a v10 and it handles it great. The truck does have add a leafs on the front end to help with the weight. I imagine you will be fine with the 5.4 and a 9.5 v. We have had no problems whatsoever pushing this blade. We are even considering putting the wings on it.

    I would go with a diesel.:nod:

    A 5.4L won't be a deal killer. I have an 2002 5.4L, a 2006 5.4L, both trucks have 9.5' V Poly's and do great. I also have a 2006 6.0L powerstroke that pushes a wide out and I will say there is a sizable advantage to putting the v plow in front of the diesel. We had to break open some thick and crusty snow at a few accounts this pass year, the 2002 did fine pushing through, but the diesel would have driven through the areas much easier. Best of luck deciding
