    SnoFoil by far. I will never have another plow without having one. I know some say that it doesn't allow you to stack as high, but I have never had a problem. Just my 2 cents. J.

    i made my own rubber deflector from a old conveyer belt from a sand plant....
    6" is plenty even in the powder...and it dont come back over the plow to blind you while driving...:eek:

    It sticks 8" out in front of the cutting edge. So you can't get as close to garage doors with them. AKA more shoveling required.

    Personally If Your Trying To Get That Close To A Doog Your Just Looking Foor Trouble, Eventually Youll Be Buying A New Garage Door Casue You Slid Through It.
