As you can see I'm new to this forum. It seems alot of you guys are mainly using the V's for commercial plowing. How much of an advantage do you feel there is over a straight blade of near equal width? We do mainly commercial lots here in Mi.(drug stores)with a couple dozen drives and smaller lots mixed in. Most of our snow falls amount to 2-5" max. We currently handle these accounts with 3 trucks, all 8' or larger straight blades. Do you think we would see a big advantage with a V?
