    What dealer is near you. I know boss has a down pressure setup like Sno-way but its a steel blade and looks rugged. My 810 does a ok job. I thought because of the weight it would do better though. What kind of truck are you getting?

    You mean what scrapes the best?? I'd say a V plow or a blizzard would help take care of any trail off when cleaning up.

    Boss does not have down pressure. There is something wrong if your Blizzard 810 is not cleaning right down to bare. Definately the best plow for cleaning up.

    I didn't think it either but I saw and played with a boss yesterday and once the plow floats down hit the down button again and you could see the truck lift a little, and the piston pushes down more. Saw it with my own eyes :eek:

    The wider the plow, the worse it scrapes. If it's wide, it won't follow the contours as well...

    Bolts. is correct. Boss DOES NOT have down pressure.

    when a plow goes down, the front end will rise as the weight comes off, on a truck that sags a bit when the plow is up, and drops it and touches the pavement, the truck still isn't straight (as it sags a bit), and you continue to let it go down and the front end will go up

    What do you mean by clean up? Is it a 1/2" of packed snow you are trying to get up. In this case I would salt. If you mean snow here and there that is in the parking lot the you need a V or a Blizzard or anything that has sides on it.

    BOSS plows do not have down pressure. When the cylinder is down it is in a float (free moving) position. What are you referring to as makining cleanup easier? Cleanup is the easiest part of snow removal, no? :confused:

    Not on the subject exactly, but what is wrong with your Hiniker? Are you having problems with it or is it not what you expected?

    Blizzard 810 is cleaning up. I mean it's the best clean up plow for commercial lot work.

    I only have 2 Blizzard 810's left. Actually have 3 but I'm keeping one for a spring demo to replace the one on my truck for the summer. I can't order more till summer. Factory sold out in early Nov.after increasing production 60% over last year.

    The Blizzard 810 is a great plow.
    Now, if Blizzard can get with the 21 century and develop a clean mounting system where all of the headgear comes off, and a set of clean receivers.
    They would have had my business.
    If they do, my next plow will be a blizzard with the wings.

    clean up

    You can't beat the clean up (scraping) capabilities of the snoway DP system! It peels up packed snow and ice like no plow i have ever owned!! Plow on. :salute:

    I had the Sno-way MT90 on my avalanche and that down pressure kicks butt. It did well scraping and backdragging was the best.
