    I cant decide weather to get the western straight blade or the v-plow. I hear that the v plow is a time saver. But ive also heard that they had problems with welds cracking and breaking. I will be doing drive ways and commercial lots. Thinking towards the V but dont want to regret it. Any opinions ?? Will be going on an 04 F350 Supercab Diesel

    If you are doing commercial i would go with the V plow, all plows have their problems but i have not heard of too many problems with western v plows. It will save you lots of time, the only downside it that it can be tight in driveways however, it can be an asset there as well especially when you want to push snow across the street.

    If you do large lots, you got to get the V.

    If you are going to be in buisiness for a while I would get a v-plow.Look into Hiniker they are very durable and hook on very easily.
