Having trouble deciding between the two. Anyone have any advice from prior expirience with either?
if your doing commercial, get the wideout, there i said it guys.
I do a good amount of driveways, but the commercials i do are large parking lots.
The 9.2 w wings is going to move a lot more snow. But I should ask what kind of truck are you going to put it on because with a 3/4 or 1 ton, there is a good chance you will be massively overloaded with those wings on.
way to throw a monkey wrench in there lol.
haha, buddy of mine who is part owner has a B&B quick hitch expandable rear plow, 14 foot. and it would be going on a late 90's 7.3 power stroke or late 90's cummins.
Well, if you see yourself doing a lot of stacking. Plowing with a lot of deep, set up, drift busting required. Or plowing any snow over 24", I would get the V-plow. The wideout is hard to beat with a V-plow when the snow is in the 4-12" range. But when the drifts get set up, the snow gets deep and heavy, and you just have to get access to that road, the V-plow is the better choice.
Thanks!, We dont usually get snow over 24" but i live out in the sticks where it drifts up to 3 or more feet in spots, and i would need to stack quite a bit, also the 9'2" w/ wings is still cheaper then a wide out. and its wider. Tough Call!!!
So put wings on the WO.
Then it gets hard to drive down roads with oncoming traffic. and then the wings are just too big. plus i dont know if they make them for a WO
Jerre makes wings for the wideout.
Be Like Burkart and Get Both............:salute:....
I have had Boss V's for a while and just bought an 9'2" XTV for my truck. There is no way i could have got into a few accounts without the V. Our storms are usually under 4" but we just had 12" plus 3 '-4' drifts and that plow was bad a**. extra height on rolling snow was awesome. I plan buying another one next year!
LOL Hopefully one day right!
I'm leaning towards the boss. Buddy of mine likes the western, maybe we'll rock paper scissor or something haha
The problem here is that people aren't making a lateral comparison. The 8.2V should be compared with the 810, with or without wings, while the 9.2V should be compared with the 8611 with or without wings. Once the playingfield is considered comparable, let the competition begin.
I would LOVE to have an 8611LP, but it just wasn't in the stars. If I'm still in the big game next year, I'm going to add a set of wings onto my 810 to make it more of a 1012. wesport
Only disadvantage of the wideout is that you can't V it to break through a huge snow bank. If you've never had a problem with that up to this point, than I think a wideout would be great. Being able to adjust the width of the plow on the fly is a huge help.
Things to consider.
What are your average snowfall events 1-8" or less get a wideout
If more like the UP 6-16" get a V
Is it your only plow? If so get a V
Commercial lots wideout
Residential driveways wideout
Rural driveways V
Do you plow WITH the storm? or wait until it's done. It's your call you know your plowing conditions better than we do
I have larged stacked snow/iced piles along my driveways. Can I break these and push back with a V plow? (My 7.6 std no place left to push snow on non-drifting side of drives.
