    I will be purchasing a couple new plows this year and have always owned straight blades after looking at plows i have narrowed it down to wide-outs or a 9.5 mvp3. i plow driveways mostly and only have a couple lots to do. Was wondering if i could get some peoples thoughts on the two plows as i hear both are great. Also was wondering if you can purchase wings for the v blade i cant find pictures of what it would look like on the net.

    I have both plows and I like my 9'6" MVP more than my Wideout. However, the Wideout backdrags better and if you're doing a bunch of driveways that'll be the better option for you.

    Can't go wrong with either one though. Western makes the best plow you can buy. All the other manufacturers are vying for 2nd place.

    is it that big of a difference back dragging with a v blade?

    I feel like there's a significant difference between the two.

    I have zero issues back dragging with my V. If you want to see pics of a Western V with wings, go to "1olddogtwo"'s page. He's got pictures of his in stainless with wings.

    Thats funny since Western, Fisher and Blizzard pretty much all roll of the same assembly line.

    I feel the Vee is better with the availability to start off straight and then switch to Vee to scoop the snow while backing.

    If your doing driveway, get a v-plow so you can stack your snow because of limited space for snow pile. also get a backblade with down pressure . best route.

    It's funny to me that you think just because they're all owned by DD that they're essentially the same plows. Blizzard uses a direct lift system, Western and Fisher do not. That's a huge design difference between the two. If anything I can see the similarities between Fisher and Western but adding Blizzards to the discussion is ridiculous.

    i have both and will most likely be buying 2 more wideouts the closed 8 foot is nice for small driveways tight areas then in big lots open it up and you will not find a faster plow on the market. only time i like the v plow better is drifts or deep snow but if you plan to plow with the storm wideout is my pick hands down

    Blizzard has the same pumps and lights that's about it.

    Absolutely love my wideout though!

    A V with wings will move more snow than a Wideout.

    Not entirely true. All depends on what your plowing. I have way out done out 9'6 with wings withy wideout. Combine both plows on a decent size lot then you really get stuff done.
