    Hey guys,

    just got my CPW catalog in the mail, and on the back there is a new Hiniker C plow, info: http://www.hinikerco.com/qhitch.html

    I have read on this forum that Hiniker plows might not be the best, but this new c-plow, essentialy rotates to become a backdrag plow.

    this looks like a pretty awesome device, same price as V-Plow.

    Just want your guys opinions on Hiniker plows/this new C-Plow if you have tried it?

    Honestly... I don't see it doing much better than backdragging with a normal plow. If I were going to spend the money, I'd get a V-plow.

    What you do is buy the plow of your choice (Right now that'd still be Boss for me) and you get the locking cylinders.

    Then, you modify the RTIII Rapid Tach so you can activate the Quick-hook switch from INSIDE the cab as well as on the column. That'll give you DOWNPRESSURE which'll clean WAY better than that contraption Hiniker calls a plow.

    PLUS: with a V-plow you can drag backwards in the V-position and it'll cradle snow (somewhat)

    so what your saying is that a v plow , backwards in the v position (hard to explain with words) is almost as good as a regular plow in regular forward plowing?

    hope that makes sense

    OK Lazer-

    You gotta quit coming up with all these new ideas. You're making me feel inadequate here!

    Does that really work on the Boss V's?

    Or... just buy a SnoWay. Honestly, I'm really happy with it.

    So John,

    Are you saying that you had a PROBLEM with your Henniker Plows under warranty, and they WON'T resolve the problem??

    Just wanted to make sure I understood correctly.

    Too bad, Guess I won't consider them an option...LOL
