    I have a older Western MVP vblade for sale. I would guess its a mid-late 90's.
    Its 8.5ft steel and comes with the hand held controller.
    Plow has a uni-mount mount.
    Came off a 2003 GMC 2500.
    I have spent a decent amount of money on the plow to get it running (it was not in use and stored for a couple years before I bought it).
    It has a new electric motor, new solinodes, new hand held controller, and replaced some wiring. I also had the fluid changed in the beginning of the year.
    I bought this plow in the fall for $3500 and then invested money into to get it running good. My other truck has a western 8.5ft poly plow I bought new and it was close to $10g's installed, so what I'm asking is a good value.
    The cutting edges are in good shape as well.
    I will be upfront, the plow has some damage on the left wing, but it has been repaired and I am going to have some more work done to it. I hit a curb plowing and bent the wing, I have never had that happen to me before, but it happened. I have had the back of the wing welded, but want to get a plate of steel to weld over the front to brace it more. The plow works fine and its just a cosmetic flaw with the welds and braces.
    If I don't sell it now, I'll sell it in the fall and ask more.
    $2000 Firm
    I will get some pics of the steel v blade and add them later

    I'm in Cambridge, Ontario.

    Thanks for looking

    10g installed? Was the cutting made of gold or something? I would like to see some pictures.

    You know he live's in Ontario, all of our snow equipment costs more because of the exchange rate. I hope he didn't pay 10k but 9k including taxes and install is very common.
