    I would go 8'6" V, if you get in tight spots you can just put the plow in V mode

    yes i see how that would be a benefit, the only thing that makes me weary of the v plows is the terrain we have to plow, pretty rough and im not sure if a v plow would hold up as well? gravel areas, lots of potholes and alot of railroad tracks. im going to look at a 8'2'' boss v plow tomorrow. i know it isnt a trip edge which im not a fan of but its so cheap i may have to just settle.

    Just lift the plow up a bit if you need to

    we always shim the shoes down so the cutting edge stays up a little bit

    Then you should be OK. I'd still be wary of any full-trip plow for plowing that terrain.
