Looking to buy a Anderson, Bigfoot or maybe a Spyker may also Agri-Fab. I'am interested in ss models with a deflector plate, do these plates work? Or do you think a drop for boarders a better way? I would think with the D. plate coverage would be heavy. Any thoughts or other brands would be greatly appreciated, also vendor sites or phone #'s.

Thank You,

Will you lift it onto a truck--light weight is a help. Stainless steel is necessary.Deflector is necessary. A fool proof adjustment is needed. A fool proof pattern side to side eveness adjustment is a big help.

Good choice and price. That is what rays charged us last year. We tried to save on shipping and got one from Zimco for $460. Did you remember the side deflector and shower cap?

Ditto. Good decision. (deflector & cover are a must).
