    I was looking at the quick match on westerns site and under blade choices there is a choice as "series 2" as in "8' pro plus series 2". I havent been able to determine what this is, anyone know?

    I'm getting close to buying a Western Plow and the dealer told me that the new 2011 Pro plow (Pro Plow 2) now has a boxed steel A-frame rather than angle iron on the previous models. I am also told that it isn't being talked about much because a lot of dealers are still sitting on the old stock and need to get rid of them first.

    Pro Series II difference

    Pro Series II is a change in the quadrant from the "half-moon" style to a square tubular design. Also the center pivoit pin has been changed to 1" to ease nose plate stress and wear. According to Western, the new design allowes the user to stack snow higher (approximately 2")
    However, you cannot use an old Pro ( Pro 1 if you will ) style A-Frame on the new Pro II. Western incorporated the same hydraulic box that is used in the MidWeight for the Pro Series II, so the Pro Series II will use different cylinders as the original Pro
