    I just bought a 2003 F350 and want to put plow on it. I am looking a buying either Hiniker 8ft V-plow or an 8ft Fisher (stainless) V-plow. Does anyone have experience comparing these two plows?

    go with at least 8.5 foot no matter what plow you get. I would have a 9-9.5 in a 350

    I have run hiniker since 93 when i started this crap, and I would not think twice about a hiniker they have bin super reliable In 16 years I only have wore out one motor and broke one hose on 2 plows. I wanted a Hiniker V but settled for the western Cause I could'nt aford a new plow and the used hiniker V plows were not the trip edge type and I wanted a Trip edge in a V so it trips in the V and Scoop.

    You didn't mention which F350. (wheelbase) I would suggest the 8.5 in either case. The plow shrinks considerably when in the "V".
