    Yes I abuse the plow. It seems I always get to close to curbs and over the years it finally did this BOSS full trip in. Took the old moldboard to salvage yard today. :dizzy:

    Got real lucky and found this plow to use in the mean time for $1200. It ain't pretty but it is complete and works. I may use the other light tower and order a 8.5 straight mold board and sell after I buy the V -XT when things come together. :mechanic:

    looks to me most of the problem was rust thinning the metal from the inside out and letting the strength drop to almost nothing.

    but hay she had a good life and made you lots of money and life much better than movin it by hand. :eek:

    r.i.p good old boss blade :salute:

    Eggsactly what I said after each hit it took!

    BF Hammer was tried first.

    That is spot on what happen. After the first major hit it took it opened a hole on the back, From then on the whole front along the cutting edge started to rust. I rebuilt it 2 years ago even sand blasting the dang thing but was no help because I could not weld up all the holes by then. :eek:

    Yes RIP old plow as it will be used no more.

    Been working on the "coin" to replace for a while now. Times are tough.

    Yeah I get my money out of most things I buy. As long as it works there is no reason to get new I say :mechanic:

    I was waiting for that list to. Tim said you had all kinds of deals going on. I couldn't wait tho and acted as soon as I found that used one so cheap. ussmileyflag

    At least you know where the deals are over here now. :laughing:

    And then some.

    Was real lucky to find a replacement so cheap. Now I remember what angle is suppose to look like again.

    Done did. RIP... (well scrap yard)

    Made a couple bucks with it.

    Yes , sad ain't it?

    I was going to wrap some duct tape on it and send pictures to Red Green show and White trash Repairs but fingered it wasn't worth my effort. :drinkup:

    I've got a couple that look like yours as well, one of which is relegated to a salt truck. I agree that the cause is due partially to abuse and also attributed to the old style boxed in Boss plows just rotting out from the inside.
