    Can you control each wing or side of the plow individually??? Or is it like a pre set positions like straight, V, and Scoop??

    Im looking at fishers V plows and straight plows. Im looking for somnething 9ft but fisher only makes a 8.5 or 9.5 V plow?? Its going on the truck in my sig. A 2004 F350 diesel. I only plowed with straight plows. But the price different is like 600 bucks. So for 600 Bucks i might just go with a V.

    Sno-Ways have presets though that are sweet. You can pre-program up to 3 different plow angles on three button presets.

    Yes the wings can be controller seperately. You can stop them in any position you want. I would put the 9'6" on that truck. For $600 extra I would buy a Vee for sure.

    For $600 you can't go wrong with the V! It will do everything you're used to and a lot more.

    once you plow with a V you will never go back to a straight blade

    Well i must have miss heard the dealer on the phone. It is 900 bucks more for the V. So i told him today im going with the 8.5 straight blade. Sorry all you die hard V guys. But i will be subing plowing township roads and i dont see were the 900 bucks in a V plow would be worth it. Plus im getting paid by the hour so being fast doesnt really pay me.

    I've used a Fisher EZ-V 8.6 plow for the past 6 years and sold it and bought an X-Blade 8.6 straight blade.Please let me give you my reasons,the EZ-V worked fine,never a problem,I didn't like how it scraped or backdraged,maybe the new Extreme is better.We also don't get the amount of snow in my area where I think the V plow would be worth while.Save your money,you'll be happy with the straight blade.
