    we bought our first one last year and this year we bought 2 more, I wouldnt buy anything else. all of our older straight blade plows have the extensions on them now which work great also. the guys that got upgraded to the wide outs have nothing but praise for them. taking nearly 30 -40 percent less time each lot which means i can have a driver pick up another lot or two in his route and be down at the same time...

    How does the wide out compare to a v I do a lot of commercial 24 he parking lots and storage lockers in the day and have had my boss v for 12 years and would be lost without my scoop.
