    I know this has probably been discussed at lenght. But I have plowed with a meyers straigh blade with wings for ten years and a blizzard speed wing for 5 Lots of heavy snow hear this year and a v plow would be handy. Would be mounting on chevy 2500 with 6.5 diesel. Which brand would be the lightest and simplest of the v plow designs?

    You will get many different answers.....What Dealers do you have near you????....I see you have a Meyers...Did you look at their "V"....

    You will get guys on here saying Boss is the Best....Others will say Fisher, Western Etc...

    Look for a Dealer thats gonna support the Product they sell.....:salute:

    I agree, you need dealer support more than anything else.

    I do have a question though. Why are you worried about the lightest plow? I have aq Boss 9.2 V plow on my 1995 Chevy 2500 with a 6.5 diesel, and it handles it just fine. I haven't had any problems at all with it.

    I wanted the lightes because I live on long island and plow upperscale drives, lots of gravel no hard freezes. My meyers has prowings and u edges I can plow right onto grass without ripping it up. I gues second question is can you put a u edge on a trip action ve plow.

    I would stick with that speed wing. I plow with a v and ya they are handy sometimes, but the scraping on them isnt very good at all even with a new edge. In Scoop you cant haul that much snow before it spills out and in scoop the scrap is really bad. Im looking at getting a containment plow like a speed wing. Thats just my opinion though. IF you do decide to go with a v, id look at the boss plows they are nice.

    Like others have said it depends really on preference, dealer support and price. I just bought a new v this fall and researched long and hard to find the one I thought had the best features and would work for me. I have been plowing now for 11 years and have run sno way, boss v and blizzard. Out of those three you can't beat a blizzard for moving large amounts of snow in a hurry. I ended up going with a hiniker 9.5' v. I liked the trip edge, hook up is the fastest among anyone, and the price was about $1200 below a 8.5' boss v xt. I love the way the hiniker plows. Scraps down very well, the trip edge is awesome and it only weighs like 860# I believe. Just do research on the ones in your area and call around and get prices and go from there. I will say the boss plows are nice but the dealer here in Indiana is just stupid with his prices. The sno way are junk. And like I said blizzard is just a beast that is probably to heavy for your 2500 anyway unless you go with a speedwing.

    A V will carry ALOT of snow and wont tear up any more grass or gravel then a blade with wings will
    Get a Boss V
