    I would like to know if I can push a 9ft. BOSS plow on my 02 Ford F250HD !CREW CAB! V8 5.4 Triton gas engine and get good results overall, the job, the power, no troubles! (If you might ask why not go with a smaller 8' plow. Its because I'm getting it at a GREAT PRICE! ALMOST FOR FREE!

    It can carry it and have no problems. Plan on sucking gas

    You'll be OK in light snow. Heavy, wet stuff is going to be a problem. You will work the engine and tranny hard. If it's what you have, you just have to make it work for you.

    It is not recommended by Boss but, who ever plays by the rules? The comment above says it all. Just too much plow for that truck.

    I'd say it is a bit too big, especially with a crew cab. That's a lot of weight when pushing wet heavy snow. I'd got 8' or MAYBE an 8.5'.

    Yeah if it were me I would pass on it almost free or not the last thing you will want to have is the tranny to go out when you get a big snow fall.

    Take the 9' and sell it for a profit. Put the money towards an 8'.

    super sized

    it would work but it would tank 40 acres to turn around,and be a lot of weight on the front end.timbren load boosters would be a must.i agree with bltp203 sell it if its that good of a deal ,but 9' plow are not that popular !:salute:

    I agree with popo and because I have experience with it! take the nine and run.truck will handle it just fine.8 foot is to small for a super-duty when angled all the way it will barley stick past the wheels.If the snow is that heavy you will have to take smaller bites no matter what size the plow is!

    I agree, I don't know of anybody around here with a 3/4 and bigger running anything smaller then a 9ft. Our 98 GMC is only a reg cab, 350 and it's had 9'2 Boss V on it since new and the transmission is original. Going forward to reverse without stopping is much harder on the tranny then pushing.
