    Is a Boss 7' 6" plow a good "fit" for a Ford F-250? Also is $2500 reasonable for a one year old plow?

    yep, if that's mount and truck side it's a fine deal. You could go bigger on that truck easy.

    I paid $2400 for a superduty with everything a couple years ago. I have it on a half ton.

    Good luck

    Depends on whether the truck is a regular cab or not.

    It would be fine for a reg cab truck, but too narrow on anything longer.


    It is a super duty plow correct?

    Way to small in my opinion. The smallest plow ive used is a 8' plow and it seems small to me. I dont think a 9' should be out of the question, or a 9.5' V if you want a V plow.

    Yah, I think the 7' 6" would be a little small......I really was looking for a 8' 6". Guess I'll keep looking.

    I hear you on the per hour, but I already have a few driveways lined up myself and an 8' or bigger would be nice......

    Yeah man thats just me....def go with a 8! You will def like it better, B&B also talk to me about some problems i may have with a small balde in deep snow. Def go with the 8, i have a fisher. But the boss and sno-way blades are just as good, or perhaps even better!

    The piles of snow on either side of the narrow path cleared by the fully angled "small" plow can cause body damage and cause problems with snow pack from running over the un-plowed snow with your rear wheels. Stacking can be an issue as the snow spilling from the sides of the blade can end up on the truck. I'm sure Mike can add a few but there's a start.
