    I am looking at getting a new plow this year, my truck is a 96 ford 350 with the diesel automatic tranny. I am wanting a V blade but I was wondering if durability is a factor,I plow almost always on dirt surfaces. Not many rocks but around railroad track and occassionaly catch an edge. What size would match the truck well? I plowed last year with a 10' blade and I think 9' would good truck plow match? The truck is SRW. Any help would be appreciated

    At the very least an 8 1/2' V-blade but a 9 1/2' would be better.

    Thanks for the reply. I have been looking at Boss, Western and Sno-Way for a V-blade and I see pros and cons to all of them. I like the down pressure on the Sno-Way, the Western looks well built, and the boss sounds like the fastest hydraulic system. I live out in the boondocks so no matter which one I go with it is a 2 hour drive to the dealership so I'm not letting that be the biggest factor in the decision. The Sno-way was $600 cheaper then the others I priced.
