just took my 2500hd dura/ally to get a 8ft artic poly installed . just wondering if anybody has had a problem with the quick link system or the poly or anything on the new artics? had a myers 8ft poly before and didn't have a problem in 5 years . hopefully i didn't make a mistake, but the artic is about $1000 bucks cheaper because it is canadian made. thats a big difference to me. just wondering also which controller u guys like, the joy stick or touch pad? had a touch pad on the myers , but am going to try the joy stick. the dealer says most guys go with the joy stick because it gives u more control? hopefully everything works out and we get hammered with lots of lake effect snow up here in southern ontario. just found this site and love it. learned some new stuff on here and i've been plowing for 10years. guess i'll keep on reading and learning. thanks for all the input.
