    Anyone use their new WIDEOUT blade yet?

    I am thinking of buying one.

    What are your like and dislikes on the new WIDEOUT product?

    Thx

    I picked one up a week ago and I used it only once on some really light snow. I so far really like it. Its quick and responsive. I was really considering a Blizzard 810 but I like the ultra mount much better. We sould be getting a good strorm this weekend so I will update.

    I put 14 hours on both of mine last night. It wound up being pretty heavy snow. I was really impressed! it scraped really well and didn't leave snow between the moldboard and wings. lightning fast.

    the only downside for me is that it seems to hold on the the snow in the scoop mode which made it lift slowly.

    how are they for running along curbs? i would imagine the wings would get bent up easily if your not careful.

    I am also curious as to plowing along curbs? How do the wings appear to hold up?

    When you are in the scoop position and you push up to a curb - what do the wings do? Do they fold back to push up and over the curb?

    Are there alot of moving parts that could break down?

    Do you think this plow style increases your productivity vs. a 8' straight blade? In what ways?

    Thx

    When you push up to a curb the wings will go back in giving you a 10' plow.

    There are no more moving parts than a V blade.

    This plow BETTER be more productive than a 8' straight blade, I paid a hell of a lot more for it... it should be more productive than a V in my opinion.

    I think if everyone seems happy with its durability at the end of the season- I will be buying one next season.

    Opinion

    I think an 8.6 with wings will give you the same production for less money, except the windrowing, its hard with wings unless u take 1 off. I like the available 10ft on demand, but for the price...its a touch much unless your doing large commercial lots.

    Id rather to be able to open up drifts and push in deep snow with a vee than sit and wait for a loader or hoe to break it up. Its more like separating , therefore, much less stress.Cant do that with a straight blade without the moldboard facing the ground

    I agree. Unless you have multiple trucks at your disposal, I'll stick with my vee. Can't bust apart a huge drift with a bucket blade. Here's to the vee plow:drinkup:!!!!

    The only thing I dont like about mine is that is feels real heavy. I have it on an F550 and it still feels heavy.
