    I just bought a 6- year old 8 poly ultra-mount western plow in good shape. I don't know much about them. Anybody got some input or their opinion on the issue of pluses minuses vs a steel blade....

    All positives IMHO, Snow will never roll off of a steel blade the way it does off of a poly no matter what you coat the steel with. No rust on the moldboard to worry about , a bit heavier than a comprable steel model but nothing that will end the world.

    Good choice on the poly.
