    i plow alot of commercial accounts with big lots that the snow tends to blow into the glass on the windows.. i cannot find a wiper that will work for more then a snowstorm before it is destroyed and it normally stops working half way though leaveing big streaks . im always getting out of the truck to try to keep them clean. any ideas?

    I'm assuming u already have a snow deflector right? I just put on a pair of TRICO winter blades, they seem to be working fine.

    Trice (cant remember the specific one) or Anco Contours, both are far superior to almost any other blades on the market. I think the Rain-x latitude is similar.

    From there visit a HD truck location and ask for heated wiper blades.....yes they make them and yes they work pretty well. Look similar to those blades above, but with a heating element. Think snomobile heated grips, similar concept.

    I use Bosch blades, they work great through the whole season and most of the rest of the year.

    Turn the defroster off. I always plow with the window open a little and the heater on the floor (not on Sahara hot either). Keep the windsheild cold and the snow blows right over.

    what happens is the snow builds up and then freezez to the blades the wont stay clean. i thought about getting a cowel for the wipers.. do those work or would it just fill with snow
