    I am wondering if anyone has ever made or bought something to get rid of the center trail, left in the scoop mode, on the RT2 boss 9'2" Vee? It drives me nuts.If anyone has a good solution to the problem,I would love to hear it.I don't use shoes though tried running with the center one and that doesn't seem to help.:drinkup:

    I'm not 100% sure if they make the new cutting edges for a 9.2, but I just put them on my 8.2 and they work like a charm.

    They completely get rid of the need for that rubber "hoof" in the middle.

    RT-II's dont have a center hoof.

    In the scoop mode, you shouldn't be leaving ANY snow trail on ANY BOSS V-plow regardless of hoof or no hoof.

    If it's leaving snow when in the scoop position, something is bent, or your edges aren't installed properly. There should be no considerable gap at full SCOOP postion.

    LOL:waving:

    The new Fancy cutting edge with the curb guard and the Fancy center section will not fit on the older RT II, sorry!!
    I leave on the center shoe (it's raised all of the way up) it seems to block some of the trail, It really it not that much snow left behind.
    Some have used a chunk of belting to bridge the gape.
