    Looking at adding plow to my fleet currently running mvp plus. Just wonder if there is any great advantage to buy mvp3 or just stick with mvp plus? Or if any has had mvp plus and switched to mvp3 and was it worth the switch ?

    Windrowing large parking lots are fun.

    I have both and think both are great plows ,but don't see no great big advantage from one to the other.

    We've had some people trade up. But we still sell lots of both. The other differences - besides the taller wings - would be the larger pivot pin and beefed up wings in that area, plus the 2" lift ram instead of 1-1/2". Pretty good material difference for the difference in price, IMO.

    I went from the 8ft pro plus straight to the MVP3, LOVE IT.

    I plowed thru about 3.5 feet of snow with it and it went thru it like a hot knife thru butter.

    I like the taller wings, I think it throws the snow higher when I'm plowing.

    I also think when it's V'd you can get more snow into it because of the higher wings and less over flow.

    I do know switching has cut my plowing time down.

    Sites that took a hour before, I now do in 30-45 minutes with the MVP3.

    Doesn't sound like much but saving 15 - 30 minutes, with 10 sites even at 15 that cuts my time down by 2.5 hours, that allows me to pick up a few more contracts.

    Love the MVP3 over the plus. I have had both. Just like every one else said love the higher sides and it will throw some snow. I have the wings on as well and it will move some snow.

    Is your mvp3 8.6 or 9.6 and how much width per side does wing add?

    The plow is a 8.6 and the wings add another foot to each side, so 10.6 as a straight blade. The wings are worth every penny.
