    I have a Boss DXT I bought thinking I needed it but I don't. It has never been hooked to a truck or pushed any snow. The blade is built and all the truck side stuff is still in boxes. The mount is for a 1988-1999 GM truck. It is 9'2" DXT Stainless and has everything but a snow flap. I have pics on my phone that I can send. Asking $7000. Call 989-858-1209

    So what is it worth? I had some guy wasting my time today that responded to my CL add trying to tell me it was only work $4000. I laughed at him. Told him that in 3yrs I still wouldn't sell it for that.

    What's it worth?? Whats the thing go for brand new? I myself wouldn't buy a plow for $7000.00 even if it was made of gold. Especially a Boss... Never used one but it would drive me crazy that you need to press 2 different buttons at the same time to make it V and Scoop. Correct me if I'm wrong.... but an honest answer to your question is whatever the plow cost brand new minus a couple hundred would probably suffice...

    You can buy a new one cheaper than what Youre asking for it. Thats your problem.

    I know that. But in my area you can't because no dealers have any.

    I guess I'm asking if you were in my shoes what would you want someone to pay you?

    You can push both buttons on the controller at the same time to make it scoop and v. Very easy. And yea, $7k, way too high

    No more than 5k. You're not a dealer you're not going to service his plow when he has a problems. I'm not sure if the warranty would even transfer.

    It doesn't matter if no one has one. You still have a used plow selling private party

    It's used but it's not. (read first post) Does a Boss really need a warranty. I've bought used ones and run them for 2-3 years and never put a dime into them other than fluid changes and cutting edges.

    5-5500 would be ballpark.

    I understand that but the fact of the matter is its not a NEW plow from a dealer. You can't ask for more than a new plow either way. I agree with old Dogg 5000-5500 and you should be happy to get that

    I've owned both Boss and a Fisher Xtreme v. They both have good and bad points. Just like the perfect job, the perfect plow does not exist.

    If new owner could get the factory warranty I'd be looking for 80-85% of what I paid. Otherwise I think I'd expect 70-75%. I'm also looking at how much I'd be willing to spend. I'd apply those numbers to other products other than plows as well, in as new condition. Other obvious factor would be how badly I needed it sold, financially and storage wise.

    So I guess I should take the 6k I was offered. But I know for sure I wouldn't take 4k. I'd keep it for that amount.

    The dealer I bought it from said I had to register it for the warranty. I've not done that yet. So I would think that the new owner could do it. Not sure if that is right. I've never bought a new Boss.

    I'd think it depends on what Boss requires to register it. If they want copy of receipt from authorized seller and that receipt has your name on it than no-go.

    I guess I'll call Boss in the morning and ask. Then I'll know for sure.

    Huh? Western/Fisher does not require that

    I would be surprised and disappointed if BoSS does.

    I didn't know if they wanted it or not and don't remember what was needed when or even if I registered the two I've bought. I just looked on The Boss website. They want dealer info, serial # and date of purchase.

    I know there are some manufacturers (not necessarily snow related) that do require a copy of the receipt for warranty purposes. I had to do that with my Marantz receiver when it died, for example.

    Might be tough with that year mounts some one will need to buy all new wires and truck mounts $4 k might not have been to bad
    Unless u get lucky and a guy with that truck years needs a plow but
    Why would you buy 2 if you only need 1 might be an expensive mistake
