    I was wondering if anyone else has this problem? I have two boss straight blade plows both superduty 8'. One is a 2000 plow with the angle iron quadrent, the other is a 2002 plow with the square quadrent. The problem is when the kickstand is in the up position on the 2000 plow it scrapes against the lift cylinder wearing the paint of it. I have been using a bungee cord to hold it away and i dont have this problem on the 2002 plow. Wondering if anyone knows of a fit or should i keep using the bungee cord.

    thats the solution...i let mine start rubing off the paint and as soon as i relized it i took it off. kjust raise up the plow all the way after you hook it up and pull the pin and the kickstand will fall straight to the ground.

    not only will it rub a little If you forget to raise it just ONCE they bent pretty easy. some days you just gotta get a little help pull your head out.
    My new one is in the tool box till it is needed

    Called Boss just to see what they would say. The tech said to weld a piece of steel to the top of the kickstand bracket on the lift cylinder side to prevent the kickstand from leaning toward the cylinder. Thats Bosses fix. Definitely more work than removing it.
