    I have a almost new 3 snowfalls boss box plow noticed it's leaving snow behind. The cutting edge is 1/2 inch higher than the skid shoes do you adjust the skid shoes up to the next whole? There are 3 total holes I am wondering what the proper way is. If the shoes are higher than the cutting edge won't it keep tripping and lose snow under the shoes.

    I found you have to play with the tilt every time you pick up the box after a run and keep the box floating then it peels the snow up not problems. Dickin with the tilt is a bit of a pia.

    Raise the shoes 1 hole and it will scrape. I just had to do mine now works great.

    Any pics of the setup ?Close up ones ? needing to fabric something for the older ones, didnt know they changed them, I guess they figured out that there was a problem with the old design. I bought mine first year , Also when i installed the cutting edge, the bolts they gave me hit the support for the sides. Had to cut them down and install them the opposite way. Thought that would be thought out better. Thought it was maybe the supports were welded lower on one but the other one i bought was the same . Guess they had a brain fart.

    Do you have a cutting edge mounted or are you still wearing down the base angle

    Have pics but have not taken the time to figure out how to post them.I would cut a piece of steel and drill holes 3/4 of an inch apart and weld it over the slots in the shoes with longer bolts.Mine is new this year so yes I'm still wearing the base angle.

    we have bx-10s and sk10s.. the bx "last years" or original had a slot, which was great, but the bolts always move, and eventually all bolts move up in highest position, meaning edge is at lowest setting.


    sk have three holes, just move the bolts down a hole so the two side shoes ride an inch higher and the edge is an inch lower.

    That's a steal, I was looking at the metal pless 8-13' which are priced around $7200-7500 boss seems like the way to For 1/3 the price and less parts to break

    We were looking at some cheap rubber edge pushers and decided to price the Boss as thats all we run on trucks. Very pleased with the price, and after the 2 pushes we have kn it, very happy with the scrape.

    Paid $2400 otd for both of mine. I'm very happy with them for the price and feel they scrape very well I just can't get myself to spend 7-9 grand on a pusher.

    I'm sure there is a huge difference between snow tires vs stock but we're you not able to push the box with stock tires or did you just slide around to much, trying to decide if I should get them, picking up my 272d tomorrow morning and a 10' box later on during the day

    I have tried the stock tires years ago and they suck in the snow too hard. They start to spin and just make ice. Buy the snow kits and you will NOT be disappointed best money I ever spent.
