    I think you will find the BX-12 very competitively priced gents. It will not be priced like on the cheaper,simpler box plows, because that's not what it is.

    My local Boss Dealer gave me a quote for $5490

    I actually am waiting to see the BX12 in person, but if its built like all other Boss products I feel the price is extremely competitive

    Deckscapes -

    You can count on the fact that its built like the other BOSS products -- we wouldn't put it out there unless it was! Let us know when you get a look --
    Also - if you're interested there is some test video of the BX-12 on our YouTube Channel -- just go to bossplow.com and go to the bottom of the screen and click on YouTube.

    Hi Guys
    I'd like to address another thing about our BX-12 videos. You will notice on our YouTube Channel that there are videos showing the BX-12 plowing both snow and dirt, as well as other demonstrations. The reason for this is simple - we test our products all year long. Dirt and gravel are even harder on a plow than snow - and we learn many lessons from pushing these materials as well. We want to stress the plows as much as possible, because we want to see where they need to be stronger. These are not professionally-shot videos, but simply engineering videos, showing you what happened when it happened.
    We know that in many cases, during the "heat of battle" in mid-winter, some larger contractors need to use temporary help to get their contracted work done -- that means inexperienced people driving big loaders with box plows -- and they absolutely PUNISH the equipment. The ask from these contractors was simple: design this box plow to be tough and easier to use for inexperienced operators. The bottom line: you never know what these guys are going to hit in the winter! And we want to make sure that we beat these plows up BEFORE you do -- for fewer surprises and more durability.

    Saw this push box today at our county fair. Jury is still out on it. Your trip edge has just regular springs on it. If I can break them on my v plow with just plowing I'm not sure they'll hold up to heavy plowing. And that trip edge bar you have inside the push area looks like it's cerack the place and bolts holding it on.

    This is my opinion on my first look.

    I agree with the trip springs. The daniels plows have much larger springs. Don't get me wrong I'm a boss guy thru and thru, but I personally think those springs seem a little small for that 12 foot box.

    It looks very nice. Depending on the success of this model, are there plans in place for skid steer models and other sizes?? I think offering the skid steer model would open up a much larger market for you guys with these pushers as there seem to be more smaller contractors that have skid steers rather than large backhoes.

    Collin -- Skid-steer sized models are being researched right now.

    How are these boxes holding up? Any plans for a skid plate for this model or progress on a smaller unit?

    Hi Snubber
    From all indications, the BX-12s are holding up well out in the field. In terms of smaller units for skidsteers -- stay tuned!Thumbs Up
