    I have been happy with xtreme v but i have some things go wrong. One thing that is great about the xteme v is well it back drags compared to other plows I have had. I am buying a new truck/ new plow and was wondering how good the boss v's were at back dragging. Years ago I had a Boss 7.5 super duty straight and it did well back dragging . It looks like the boss v s and there trip edge blades have a different angle of degree on the cutting edge than there full trip blades do. I don't want to buy a plow that I have to add a after market back drag to do a clean job. I also do not want to buy a pull plow either .( had one and it did not work for me)

    I don't know about the DXT but the other ones doesn't back drag well
    My boss didn't back drag well till I started put my own 5/8''x8'' cutting edges on the added weight and height makes a better back dragger

    I feel like it lacks a little in that department personally. However I am usually plowing at around 6 inches or more so it is tough to say. The lighter weight of the plow it tends to ride up. However I would not let that affect my decision on boss it is a great plow

    i have the DXT and it back drags awesome compared to a straight blade. When the snow gets too thick, i put the plow in scoop mode and back drag and it peels up just about anything.

    does the dxt have a more aggressive cutting edge than the reg boss v?

    I don't believe so. I think it just is heavier and so it back drags much better.
