    I love my Wide Out, but all of my commercial lots are sizeable. Not as big as some of you bigger companies can service, but big enough for me. So, Wide Out.

    How much more is the wideout over the prodigy? How much more is the XLS over the wideout?

    I'm not sure I'll go and check I get special prices on plows But if I'm right the western wide out is more than the fisher and I think there like 8 grand and up and the wide out is more than the prodigy by a few grand

    If you do get a MVP3 dont get stainless. We bought a new Stainless this year and unwrapped it at the shop and how it was sitting in the pallet the drivers wing is rusted. Now stainless will rust after plowing from picking up blade dust imbedded, i do know this, but this was just from water and storage! I wish I could just trade them for poly moldboards now.

    Wow, I thought XLS would be the most and I figured the wideout would be maybe a grand more than the prodigy.

    I looked them up at the beginning of the season it never called for a quote. (I learned my 09 Duramax has a 4800 FGAWR) if it was gas I could have one but the diesel and trans weights 700lbs more than gas.

    $8k for an XLS? May want to look around a little more because your special pricing is horrible. Around here they are $6500 installed.

    Wideout...paid $6100 last year installed. It's a lot of money but worth every penny, as long as I keep doing larger lots I see no reason to not have wideout/xls

    If you can get one for $3k buy two. Sell the second one and your plow will be free.
