    Hello,
    Where can I find some information about the how the Boss SmartHitch2 hydraulic set-up works? I've been to the Boss site, looked under the technical manuals and found some drawings. The problem is that the drawings don't explain how the system works (i.e. Raise, Float, Right, Left, etc.). I think the set-up is cool and I'm curious as how it works.

    Do you have a Boss dealer nearby? They could tell you what ever you want to know. Otherwise I have one here in town. Quad City Spring. Their number is 309-762-2956. Ask for Bill Allison. Good luck.:waving:

    Thanks for the phone number. I'm running a 1 year old Fisher 8' MM2 now, but there is a guy selling a 3 month old Boss 8' Super Duty w/ the SmartHitch2 set-up for a great price and I'm thinking about upgrading. I've watched the SmartHitch2 video on Boss' website and really like the idea. Just wonder if it's easier to mount than my Fisher, which is a real snap.

    It takes me about 30-45 seconds to hook up and even less to take off. Good luck!:waving:

    It's a good deal and it's real tempting, but we'll see what happens. Can you safely take a plow off a truck and replace it with another brand? What about holes that had to be drilled to mount the original plow?

    Ryan,,, thats the great thing about Boss plows. Most applications do not require any modifications to the vehicle. Boss has really done their homework when it comes to install for their plows.
