    the ultra mount with a pro plus blade is my choice as we have had them for 2 seasons and have nothing but good luck with them.Of coarse these are my 2cents worth but we have used western ,meyer,flink,and boss and the all get fliud and filter changes at the begining of the season and the meyer by far had the most and costliest repairs .Motors valves and of course lift frames and truck mounts.western and flink were the most trouble free .The flink I would recomend for bigger trucks (over 1 1/2 tons)

    go with the western, for sure!!! for the extra $200 or so the headaches you'll have with a myers, isn't worth saving $200. western's quality is a lot better!!! goodluck, pete

    It's real decieving - because of the popularity of Meyer plows, but this is just because of their marketing and sales branch numbers. The Western is by far a better built plow. I have worked on too many of several different kinds of plows, and I can tell you that the Westerns have it over the Meyer brand by far. It all depends on if you want to go out and move the snow, or just go out and play in it.

    I hope you're wrong about Meyer and right about Talpirid.

    Western, no contest.
    Youd better hope Meyers are easy to work on because thats what you will find yourself doing most of the time.
