    Does anyone know why boss doesn't make a scoop plow it seems like all other major manufactures do.Blizzard, Western, Hiniker, Fisher I would have to guess it will be soon?

    who knows maybe boss will even come out with there own type of plow. hiniker came out with the C plow and the Scoop plow. Blizzard has there power plows. Maybe its boss's turn to come out with a new type of plow.

    They did, it was the XT VEE. It will throw snow higher and farther.

    right, but they fisher did the same thing with the xtreme v, before boss. boss just took it up a level by emphasizing it more

    Seems to me that some Boss plows have a "scoop" position that can scoop as much or more snow than any of the rest of them,.... :waving:

    taller on the outsides like the xt, just not as dramatic of a difference, that boss with wings will sure carry some snow!

    :confused: They did years ago. Who do you think invented the Vee plow. If DD was then like they are today, there might not be a Boss, DD would have bought them for the patents like they did with Blizzard.

    And the son of the man who invented the Vee developed the Blizzards.

    OK, I agree, that's historically accurate. :nod:

    Allow me to re-phrase; Boss developed and held the patent for the first Multi Positional Articulated Blade, commonly referred to as a Vee blade
