    If you are staying in big open lots the wideout will out shine the MVP. If you get much heavy drifting then the MVP will be a life saver breaking through them. I live in the country and we get big drifts about every snow, so a wideout would be helpless out here.

    Rarely do I get big drifts. Im looking to bid on about a 4 acre lot next season. My 8' pro plus will not cut it.

    I have a 8'6" MVP, a 9'6" MVP and a Wideout. The plow that moves the most snow is the 9'6" MVP when it's equipped with wings. If you don't want the pain of taking the wings on and off then a Wideout is the way to go.

    I think a V with wings is the best way to go

    Depends on your application. As stated, v-plows for breaking through deep or packed. Long straight for clearing large areas.

    Get both plows and you will be set for any type of storm.

    V plows in the scoop position can also break up snow banks easier when you're trying to push them back; stack real nice too.

    I'll take the wide out every time.

    Wideout cannot beat the length in scoop mode. No trail off.

    Yea, a V can stack higher and break through drifts better, but we stack with a loader and don't plow back country driveways. In a parking lot you can't beat a wideout.
