    Is anyone running this plow? What are you thoughts?

    Ran one for years loved it, though had a couple issues. It can be a hassle to get the articulators right and its not the fastest, large double acting cylinders remove any chance of that. But they're great for backdragging, they could be smaller pistons would be faster but would lose some strength. The double hinge allows it to carry more snow then the single hinge design. I prefer the handheld keypad to the double joy stick. I used it like a touchpad and have great control over wing position with out mode changes or any extra hoopla. I'm hoping I like the new thumb stick as well as I did the keypad.

    Get the deflector:nod:

    you know i kinda like the joy stick on the v plow over the key pad.. i know a couple customers didnt like the key pad cause it was too hard to find the buttons when plowing and some plowed with gloves? why they plow with gloves on you got me?

    and yes the deflector for sure!

    It is a great plow. I am still running mine but it is the smaller one. I agree with the hydraulics being a little slow but it is NOT bad. Yes on the deflector too.
    I replaced the center rubber piece with a steel one and it is ALOT better.
