    Just looking for comments on how and where each particular plow shines over the other

    V - opening drifts using the "V" position (not usually a problem in the Ozarks) and large lots using the scoop position where you need to move the snow to a particular area.

    Straight - any area where you just need to push the snow to the side (windrow)

    V pros
    Clean up with the scoop
    V position for travel(easier to zip around, also holds blade closer to front axel so it dosnt act as heavy as a similar weight straight)
    Dog leg positions are nice at times
    Busting drifts or spitting snow off to both sideds while Veed
    They look cool :cool:

    Heavier than a straight generaly
    More moving parts to grease wear ect
    Center hinge can screw with windrowing a very slight bit
    more expensive

    Generally you will pick up productivity with a V but how much depends on your lots. I'm sure others will add to it.....

    Every plow has it's strong points and weak ones also, but it really sounds like you need a BLIZZARD 810 to solve all of your questions.

    Ease of hook-up.
    Time savings.

    Equal money in your pocket.

    That would be my choice.
