    for those who can't decide between trip edge and full trip here you go. Have no experience with these plows but so literature at the Viking plant when I was picking up parts. If they are built anything like Viking highway plows they should be awesome.

    I ran them on our highway dpt years ago when they came out.. As far as I'm concerned,, 5.00 a ton is all they are worth,,, They are not, at least then, a good commercial plow.. We had nothing but heartache using them,, Although I have to say,, this is what happens when you buy under state bid,, The upfitter then (somewhere around Milford MA) ,, anyway, the upfitter I believe was the major cause as everything was off an eight here, quarter there and so on.. It exacerbated an already weak designed plow.. Today, they very well may be redesigned for better strength, and or have found better suppliers that are willing to take the time and mount things correctly.. I am talking 96 to 98 time frame, and that is ancient technology by now.
