Bos Poly 9-2 Pulled off on lower bolts

Discussion in 'Boss Plows Discussion' started by Pa Teeny, Feb 18, 2014.

  1. I am sick as the lower part of my Boss Polycarb has done what I did think would happen new as 2009....Thats why I like metal...anyone else have that happen.

    I had one side last week.....we welded a upper lip to hold poly in place..

    Any pictures of the carnage for us guys that don't have the poly plows so we can see what issue you are referring to?

    I have been running poly since 2000.... Never seem to have any issues with mine and I extreme plow....blasted out a speed bump once and the asphalt but a split in the poly and rode the side of my truck but other than that been no issues for me...... Going to a western poly v plow for next year.....
     
  4. It was like the bolts pulled through the poly or the washers rusted away...I sent Boss an email...as to what should I do. I have a Polycarb Meyers that has never done this. I am a boss fan....but when I bought the plow...I told the company Equipment Specialist I wanted steel as I can weld it. Well I came to get my plow and it was a poly...yea they lowered the price but I knew where I live welding is a must....I was like it wont happen....it did. It must be from back dragging as it has no support.....I will beef it up this summer as old man winter winds down...
    pictures are too late as it will be fixed by the next time i see it.

  5. I took pictures as it looks like some freezing pulled the lower inner polycarb out and it then ripped the back nut off with wear and tear.....will plazma cut a circle hole to put another bolt on at each spot this summer.....

    If I had a polycarb plow i would wield a piece of metal to the pointed part of the v area that would keep and protect the lower tip and corner of the Poly.
