    Either one of these would be fine. A poly plow is going to weigh a bit more than a steel plow but not enough to really notice. A steel moldboard plow will enable you to get wings easier if you ever wanted to install them. A poly moldboard won't rust but gets brittle after a few years (if left out in the sun and fade), a steel plow can be painted year after year. The only poly moldboard I've seen cracked or had a hole in it was the older clear (see through) SnoWay's
