    The one I have is my first poly. But, so far, I love it! Snow doesn't stick at all and it cleans up after a storm at the car wash really easy!

    Check out the Hiniker they dropped a ton of weight for the new poly V. We have had great luck with our Hiniker plows easiest on/off IMO. We have 2 9'scoops, 9.5'steel V,and an 8' straight w/wings.

    I was just looking at mine the other day and they are built the same way they have been for the past 5 or 6 years. The only thing they changed was the lights, and the cutting edges. From what I know anyway. I know I will NOT buy any other brand but boss.

    Four seasons, i have ran the new 2007 Hiniker v for two years before it came out in 2007 for Hinikers.The new vee is sweet, the trip edge sold me right away since we plow alot of concrete parking lots with expansion joints that are always on the rise. Also the power wing cylinders are sweet for back draging and will not fold forward unless you hit an object backing up, the plow will act as a straight blade, the movement time has increased a few tenths of a second and time is money, i have ran boss and older hiniker v plows and this one is the iceing . If i cant destroy it on my truck and what we plow it has to be good.

    fourth time cant hurt. you have to put a filter on some of the stories you hear, like i was only going 5 mph and i hit a little pebble and the one wing fell off, which really filters to i was going 45, and hit a small boulder. Boss wesport

    I had the same problems picking a plow.
    I use to own the sno-way straight blade and thought that was the besting ever. Then I wanted to have a vee because I knew that ability to scope would help eliminate the frustration of trail off.

    sno-way .. too slow and new version was going to be talked about until late this year.
    boss ... good stuff.
    western ... like the boss but, improved on a few things.

    I went western only wish it had down pressure like sno-way too.

    buy a steel plow. just my opinion. i trashed a poly plow. cant go wrong with the fisher xtreme V. or the regular xblade. best plows on the market.
