    Hey Guys! I’ve been “lurking” here for some time and thanks to everyone for all they have had to say.
    I’m pulling the trigger on my first and plow this week. I’m torn and hate doing things again because I didn’t choose correctly.
    I drive a 2001 3500 Dodge dually which I’ve fixed pretty much everything on so I know it’s reliable.
    Meyer has the best financing and I like the Super V on paper but after reading the comments maybe it’s a no go….?
    Boss is an obvious favorite here (vxt) but it’s an easy grand more than the Western wide-out… BUT I like the Wide-Out. Boss and Western have the same financing.
    All the dealers here in Maryland are around the same distance.

    For the money and with everyone’s experience what would you suggest.

    Although I am strictly a BOSS guy if I was to buy new I would go with the Wideout for the simple fact that BOSS is not keeping up with the times on expandable blades.

    Dual rear wheels mean you need at least a 8 1/2 footer may as well go big as you can.

    I like the Fisher XLS better than the Wide Out because it has a trip edge but, If you don't care about having a trip edge you should go with Western Wide Out.

    Thanks! I think I'm pulling the trigger on the wide out..... From reading here I like what the wide out dealer had to say and they do good service work if I need work on the plow.

    What have you all decided on insurance? Progressive full coverage is painful at best, and is all I've called.
    Is there a company that will cover you only when plowing to save a few dollars?
