i love boss plows. they are the only plows i would own. nothing compares. are you running a joystick or a smart touch. i will be making or buying a pull plow for next year. would be really nice for my cash wash accounts. how ever next year id like build a decated plow rig witha 12 v short box since cab 1 ton dodge. v plow and swing wing rear. with a sno x spreader.


the only problem with my plow is the center shoe is wore out and i havent gotten a new one yet. so i used a peice of rubber and its not holding up so well.

what size plow is yours?

i got the smart touch and for the back blade its just a joystick that goes up and down, nothing special. that back blade is awesome for condos or driveways the but up to garages, just back in, pull the snow out, back over the pile and push away.

the v blade on the truck my boss runs has that stupid rubber shoe and its been nothing but a pain. on my truck the blade has the cutting edges with the curb guards and the corners in the center are bent so there is no rubber piece to deal with.

the v blade is 9' 2" and the back blade is 8'

have you ever use the lights on the truck rather than the plow? we started doing that last year and it seems to work a lot better, plus you dont have to adjust those lights at all

ya but the plows to tall. its fine with the plow down but if i carry the plow at all it will cover the lights on the truck. i will be making my center peice here in the next few days. im going to make my own center catcher. easy to do and im going to weld on some curb guages as well. my one lot they have to have all thee snow off the curb. i move it the best i can and they still come out and shovel the snow off the curb and move it in wheel barrows. im not beating my truck off the curb to clean it for them a plow, if they want that they will need a broom on a tractor or bobcat.

it wont work with a straight blade obviously but when the blades down just driving i think its 100x better than the lights on the plow, yes at times they get blocked but i can deal with it

and boggin, we used to have a place like that, they wanted every inch of snow remeved from the driveway, which butts up to the building. so when i would plow it there would be say a strip along the building say a foot wide and they complained. lets just say we dont do that one anymore lol

i agree, but get ready to pay about double the price (i think ) as the stock one. dont quote me on that but i know they are quite a bit more expensive

its not that bad, remember your not replacing the center shoe, saving you 80 bux or so. and they are thicker if i remember. add the price of curbguards, and its actually a good deal. and we take all of our shoes off (blades scrape cleaner, but go thru edges faster)

curb guards? and account for the longer wear time due to thicker metal.

i was talking about the cutting edge that actually has the curb guards bent so its all one piece. maybe my boss bought his at the wrong place because he said he spent a shit load more on them haha
