    Hey guys I found a used Hiniker 8.5 V at a local dealer, came off an 04 Ford, so everything is there for my truck. They think it's around 5 years old. Wondered if there was anything in particular to look for on these, I read about the mount fork issue, but anything other than that? They are asking $2900. Let me know what you think. Thanks

    Other than paint, it looks to be in order. I'd offer him considerably less than the 2,900 he's asking though. What dealership is that? Looks like they've got quite a few used plows for sale. Do they have a web-site?

    They are a local Ford dealer that sells a few lines of plows. They had a couple other used ones that sold in the last few days. This one was on a traded truck that sold without the plow.

    Worth $2000.00 AT BEST! Check the A-Frame toward the front below the adjustment jam nut. We have had issues with the cracking there over the past winter from stacking snow.

    Also I would check the welds on the V-tower to be sure they are not pulling apart.

    That plow is all of 5 years if not older do to the fact it does not have the Dual Acting cylinders. I think they came out in 2005
