    Found a used Hiniker 8'6" V-plow, suppose to be a 2001 model. Nice shape just a little rust on the blade but not all smashed up. New cutting blades. Price is $2500. Sounds like a good deal but I'm kind of worried about the cutting edge. Its a solid, non trip edge.
    Also kind of worried about the weight of the plow. It will be put on a 92 F-250 HD with a IFS dana 50 front end. Currently has a 7.5 western unimount which it handles with no problems.
    So what do you guys think?? To much plow for the truck? Over priced??

    If it's in good shape its a decent deal. As for the F-250 you should be fine, I have 2 3/4 ton Dodge Diesels with the same plow on them with no problems!
