    What techniques make the V plow a superior plow? Do they make plowing with a longer wheelbase truck easier?

    What would be the single biggest advantage?

    Disadvantages?

    The biggest advantage would be the scoop position. You can put snow were you want to. With a straight blade it just rolls off the side of the plow. Then it takes four or five passes to clean it up. With the V it takes a couple of passes and your done. V's take 25 to 35% off your normal plow time.
