    Here are a few videos of our new Boss DXT plow. We purchased this based on recommendation from the dealer who sells other manufactures as well and so far very pleased with it.

    Unfortunately in heavy snow events I don't have a lot of time to be playing around with camera set ups and mounts but here are a few videos so far from this year.

    Here is the full rig.
    - 2013 GMC 2500HD
    - 8'6" Boss DXT
    - SHPE1500 Saltdogg Spreader

    very nice videos. I do have one question though and this mite be the wrong place to ask it cause I don't want to high jack the thread so if I get no responses that's cool.

    what is the deciding factor for you guys who don't use the snow deflectors on your plows?

    There is one long driveway we do this year that I wish I had a deflector but overall it has never been an issue.

    For these short runs and pushes they don't provide any real gain.

    I suppose it's partly because I've never had a plow without one. but I know I've had times where even the deflector didn't keep the windshield clean so I gotta believe they help. for me anyway.

    Nice set-up, I'm definitely thinking about adding the DXT next year. Hows the SaltDogg holding up?

    Saltdogg is great, only had this unit since the start of the season but no complains so far. Even ran some pickled sand though it last week with the -30 temps and it spread great.

    What are peoples thoughts on the operation of the plow in this video, I know I shouldn't listen to comments on YouTube but I always try to take good care of equipment so any insight would be good.

    Here's some advice, at the start of the video you begin to plow with the plow in V mode and it gets hung up. Start in angle mode and then once you're moving and beyond the drive apron go to V mode, that way you can slide over the cracks easier. Then when you drive into the pile in V mode, retract to straight before lifting to ease amount of force needed to raise the plow. In fact as you raise into the pile begin to flatten out, it will become second nature for you.

    Thanks, I usually do V position to stack higher but I see your point. I will try that all out.
