    I have a 2000 Superduty with single rear wheels. It has a 7.5 fisher on it now. Its just too small. I was thinking of a Boss 8.2 poly v plow. Do you think that is wide enough to clear the truck?
    Right now i am driving on what I am plowing.

    If you do commercial and with an Sd I recommend you look at a Blizzard 810.

    7.5 is fine if your doing res and comm 8 is the best in lots but tight in some driveways

    a 8'2" boss v blade will make the snow clear the tires of a super duty. My boss has one and has no problems. Its an all around good setup. :D :D

    A SD needs at least an 8 ft plow to clear tires. A cheap way to get the with is a set of pro-wings, but if you going to buy new I'd go with the Blizzard....Chuck

    It's only the sharp turn's that kill me, but I have gotten used to it and figured how to deal with it :)

    I also have a 2000 Superduty x-cab. The current configuation is; 8' Wesern poly pro. My biggest complaint is the lack of a turning radius. I always seem to be running with the rear wheels outside of the plow's width. This, as we all know causes a snow/ice pack over time. I'm a " zero accumulation " guy, so I need no hassles. If you have a 350, try an 8.5'. I'm a big fan of having the option to go full width....

    I don't have a SD, but a '90 F250 x-cab w/ a 7.5'. Like Eyesell, I only have probs with the real tight turns. But none of my drives call for it, except one. It's a circle drive, but it's to tight to turn around without the plwo, so I have to back up a few times regardless. I've been thinking of pro wings.

    The fisher 8ft will clear the tires with no problem on my 2002 F-350. Rounding tight corners and short radius curves can sometimes leave a bit on the inside. Does anyone have advice for a tight left turn circular driveway. Should I keep the blade straight or angle it? I've been through it many times, and may ways, and it always seems to leave snot on the inside. I just would like to be more efficient. Please help.

    I thought that the new ones have a center shoe?

    The new ones do have a center show, but there are still lots of problems with it. When it's on and working, no problem.

    It's a weak link though. Bolts break, shoe breaks, etc.

    Call Boss and ask to speak with their service people. They will concur with me.....

    Maybe the other plows are no better, I'm not sure.
