    I like the chain, gives the plow a nice rugged look :D

    If there was such a thing as a chain AND a power down feature I would be so on top of that!!

    I don't really know. Have only had the snoway so far. I like the lack of the "chain slap" though. Sure I have a few more hydraulic hoses, but I can deal with it.

    I hated the old school chain setups. the new fisher I have though dosnt have the bounce and all that so there goes my only real complaint.

    There are pros and cons to each side and IMO I couldcare less one way or another. A chain is a bit easier to "short chain" if you have a problem but IIRC all the cylinder modles employ pins or other means to keep the blade locked up if you lose lifting ability. But then you gota try to line up pins pushing up into a snow bank and such.......
