    What is the difference between a western mvp plow and the western mvp plus plow? Is the mvp plus just a updated version of last version? If so what type of updates did they do to it? Also how does the western's vee plow compair to the other vee plows out there ( boss, hinker, fisher, curtis?

    Also I went on westerns website and did their demo of the new MVP controller, and when you hit the wing button it seems like you don't know if it is going to come back or go forward. Does anyone have a problem with this that owns the western vee plow?

    The mvp plus is a huge improvement over the mvp. They basically took a Pro plus and made it bend in the middle. The hydrualics are 10 times faster. It also uses westerns new multiplex system, which has all the wiring on the plow itself. Nothing under the hood. You can also get the pro plus wings for it. To make a gaint scoop plow.


    The western trip edge will trip no matter what postion it is in. A boss will only trip in straight blade postion. Scoop or V postion forget it.

    The boss website is very very bias. don't waste u time.

    Thanks itsgottobegreen for the information. I also noticed that the mvp plus is 98lbs light that the older mvp in the steel 8'6" model which is good cause it will be going on my 2001 f-250. Also it looks like boss and western have the same idea on the center gap to prevent snow from leakage in the middle of the plow. Also can you get the wings on the 8'6ft vee plow?

    Yes, the Western and Fisher are made by the same company. Same hydraulics. Mounts are different. Personally I think the Ultramount is really slick. I think the Fisher wings are shaped a little different. Has anyone tried a stainless skin on a Western?

    They won't fit. The fisher has a flared wings. The western has straight wings.

    Thats what I thought it looked like on the showroom model, but I wasn't sure. What about Fisher wings on an Ultramount T-frame?:)
