    I have read a number of discussions regarding Western coming out with a plow similar to the Blizzard plows with the wings...

    I spoke with my local dealer and they could not confirm anything - but I don't think they are always on top of things.

    Can anyone confirm or deny this.

    The new plow is i believe going to be called the western "wideout" and yes it is like a blizzard in which it has the power wings. It will use the ultramount system for mounting. Hopefully itll turn out nice!

    I actually hope to see one as we have no Blizzard dealer in this province and I'd like to see a plower plow first hand as many on here and another site rave about them.

    Though the price will probably scare a few people off I bet.

    I'd like to see them come out with a Poly version of this!

    I love the virtual no maintenance of Poly Plow's!

    If this new Western does not have dual acting rams, it will be a waste of time.

    The MVP Plus is a fine plow, but could be improved by widening the ram pivot points, and increasing the diameter (and thus power) of the rams.

    Main plow wings, powered or not, in IMHO, are a waste of engineering and time for heavy duty use. Probably usefull for light (under 8") snow, but no one in my area PAYS anyone to remove this. They wait till the snow is a foot or two to call!

    Regionallity will determine productivity - and prosperity!

    BTW- How does one keep a poly plow within 6" of the ground in 2+ feet of snow? How does one bust 4+" of ice with a poly plow without damaging the moldboard?

    Heavy and steel, in my neck of the woods!

    correct me if im wrong, but arent full size poly plows heavier than steel plows of the same size? Poly is also a very strong material because of the thickness that is used on heavy duty plows.

    Weight, I dunno. Extra reinforcement is required for poly skins.

    But, I have seen, and it has been reported on this site, occasions of poly plows shattering (large holes created in the moldboard) under extreme stress and cold. My posts must be considered by locale, DEEP and COLD here. What may be entirely adequate in your locale may fail miserably in mine. What may work here may be overkill (and therefore over expendature) where you are.

    If I could afford it, I would run no less than a six wheel drive FWD, 12 ft Colorado plow, and 10 ft mid mount benching wing. Alas, I don't have a budget anywhere near that of the State, so I go as heavy duty as what I can afford.
