    2008 BOSS VXT 9 foot 2 inch wide V-Plow.

    1 season on new cutting edges, Smartlock Cylinders, NEW Haldex pump assembly, pickups, gaskets etc. New pump is strong and fast, makes the plow run like new. New RT3 attachment levers, springs etc, all new fluids, and a brand new joystick controller. Wiring will go with the plow. Wiring is for a Ford F150-450 but I was able to make it work in the dodge. Should plug right into a Ford/dodge no problem.

    RT3 Truck mount is also for sale and fits 1997-2002 Dodge Pickups.

    Price is $3000

    I don't meant to hijack the thread, just saw the opportunity for a question to be answered....I noticed in the first pic in V mode the trailing edges are off the ground a little bit, is that something that can be adjusted out or would a new cutting edge be required to fix that problem? My 05 that I just got has a boss setup already on it and am looking to try out a boss system, I just know nothing about them yet as I've always run and only worked on Fisher stuff.

    That pic is before new cutting edges. My actual problem in that pic was push bar angle on the truck side. But that is a whole other story. For most, it can be easily adjusted with the bumper on the A-arm by sliding it back allowing the plow to cant further back in V. It is a balancing act however between having the outer edges touch in scoop position or in full V. Pretty much I always adjust for good contact in scoop. V is more of a rough tool for opening up deep snow and getting through windrows. A clean scrape in scoop is much more important.

    Mike, that is caused by the mount being to high or low and the bump stop possibly being in the wrong spot. All easy fixes and does not require new edge.

    So does this mean no more cool pics of you plowing to the towers?

    Exactly...as I stated above. Thanks though! That is an older pic after I had lift springs installed in the front.

    I was backed into on the Drivers side by a gal in a mini van that I asked to move. Her insurance settled with me to essentially rebuild the plow with whatever was needed. I went through Mike at Central Hydraulics in Rogers MN for the repairs. He/We could not discern what was normal wear and tear and what was actual "damage" so we checked all parts and replaced what was out of spec. That included new cutting edges, new center section, new A-Arm, New center pivot Pin, New Locking Cylinder, New Plow Shoes. and an update to the A-arm attachment pins. Bill to her insurance was $2800.

    Then this past summer i found the pump motor brushes were completely corroded so I swapped in a fresh Haldex pump and reservoir from Equipment Specialists ($750) and a new Joystick controller ($290).

    After all that....It's essentially a brand new 5 year old plow.

    Talk is cheap however. I will post a video of the plow tonight.

    I remember seeing that as I plowed Hardware Hank thinking "Did I really just watch that happen?". That was crazy.
