    Is there any plan to offer the XLS in stainless steel instead of the powder coat? I want to buy one but I love my x blades and x-treme vees so much.

    Just wondering.....

    The xls powdercoat steel costs enough as it is $$$ already.......a stainless steel version would cost thru the roof! :eek:

    It was only a couple hundred extra to get my XV in SS. Is the moldboard welded to the frame on the XLS? If so, that would pretty well rule out SS. Until they do the entire frame in SS.

    My guess is that they would have to re engineer all the bracing on the XLS. The SS would flex way to much the way it is now.
