    I want to "move" a 7'6" SD straight blade but i have the straight blade controller in the other truck that is at another location, can i take my f350 with the V controller and at least lift the straight blade up off the ground with it to move it 15 miles away? Or doesnt it work at all? Connectors look the same on both plows.

    Actually you can, sort of. The SB controller will operate the vee up, down...and also fully angle it right and left. You just can't operate the wings independently.

    In other words, the vee works just as if it were a straight blade.
