    Starting to look seriously for a V-Plow, Would like to have a trip edge and 8 1/2' going to mount it on a 04 Duramax 2500. What do you guys like and or dislike about your V-Plows and what kind are you running and or recommend. Thanks

    i dont own one but if i did it would be a western from all the searches i did. what kind of dealers do you have around you for support? western would be my number one and boss number 2. western gets my vote!

    depends im on the same debate between boss and western but the boss dealer is so far and i never go that way and its on a crap road so im leaning towards western.

    Since Boss plows don't break it's not that important on how far they are. Most parts you can pick up in local part stores.

    I have had western in my family for generations and they are not like they used to be. mine barely gets any use and it sucks and from all my research and reading threads on this site any other make seems like someone is asking how to fix something on all these plows except boss. and if it does need to be fixed its older and paid for itself, just what ive noticed over the last year of researching for my next blade, boss is the way to go

    I love my Fisher XtremeV.... This is my second season with it, I've only had 2 problems with it, first was a blown hydraulic line, caused by drivers side wing getting clipped by an oncoming big rig wandering into my lane, tweaked the outside edge of the wing, but still usable after replacing the hydro-line... Second problem was the $5.84 pin that pins the push bar to the head gear fell out, cotter pin either fell out (maybe installation error) or else maybe pin was damaged/fractured from hit from big rig then broke and fell out at later date??? either way neither problem was the fault of Fisher...

    I like my Snoway MegaV now thats gonna spark the talk right. I been Fisher until last season and now the MegaV mounts faster on uneven ground and the downpressure is amazing, I wish you could ask the guy that plows the lot next to the one I do, he has asked me to scrape that lot for him cause his fisher doesn't get down to pavement like mine. I love it.

    dealer support

    As I have stated before the Boss vs Western/Fisher debate will go on for ever with no clear winner. Go with dealer support! All plows break what matters is how fast you can be up and running again. Get references from the dealers existing customers, actually check their parts inventory, do they have service loaners? Can you get a hold of someone at 3 am???
