meyer super v2 opinions

Any opinions on the Meyer super v2 8.5 plow. I am also considering the Boss Power v xt. Any thoughts would be great

i will be putting it on my 04 cc short bed with mods listed

Thoughts on how much ballast I should use with one of them?

I've got a Boss Super Duty on my truck and I have 500 lbs of sandbags in the back. Any V blade will weigh more than a straight blade, so I'd run a bit more if I were you.

Make sure you get it as close to the tailgate as possible.

fisher Xtreme v or XLS. ive got a semi truck tire on a pallet on plywood with some sand in it so i can just take it on/off with the bobcat, probably weighs a good couple hundred pounds

also do you have your own accounts or do you plow for someone? If you are subbing out id recomend getting a straight blade. it takes longer to move snow so in turn you get paid more

My brother in law and I both have our own companies. He is the one who plows and got in over his head. Asked me for help. At this point he is going to pay me then I may get some stuff on my own for next season.

What do you guys do with your tunes when plowing? Dp tuner sugested I use a tow tune. Any thoughts?

i run a 8.5 western vplow.. its fast and efficient, but its heavy and has more moving parts. you should really look into hiniker plows. this is one of the best plows out there in terms of weight/efficiency/cost. Hiniker Snowplows - Trip-Edge Scoop Plow

i actually use a higher tune like performance because i like having the "pep", also upgrading your trans cooler is a must.

I put thought into the Hiniker. My local dealer of them does not stock much in parts. That could be an issue. And they are asking top bucks for it. Same problem for me with Boss. They want to sell them and then say we can have you parts in 3 or 4 days. They Meyer guy bends over backewards for you so that is partly why I am swayed that direction.

Thanks for the heads up on the trans cooler. That is my biggest concern is is beating the daylights out of my truck. It is my daily driver so that is a concern. I will be driving so I think that will help. I know the guy behind the wheel cares!
