    Ok guys I had a myers that was soooo rusty it broke on me while i was doin my last job last winter. I got rid of it and now I am looking for a boss plow. I have no money at them moment but i am working my tail off. I get like $400 after the first of the year, I'll get my christmas money, I have a 89 f250 that is forsale for $1000 as is or $1500 when fixed..it needs a battery,clutch bled and right front brake line changed., I have some paintball guns and equipent, I prolly have more that i can sell or trade but yea. I need a boss plow, I really want a boss v or boss v-XT but a straight would do. Any ideas how to get the money for a v-xt? If anyone has one and is interested in what i got I would be willing to trade. I am in NW OH

    What are you good at? Ask around diff construction sites for cash money at the end of the day. V XTs are going to be expensive.

    Business 101...........Get an affordable and reliable used Boss Straight blade for this year....make your money and sell it next fall and upgrade to a V-XT.

    If you can scrape up the money now that's great....otherwise take it in steps.

    Are you working? that would bemy first step sence it wasnt mentioned. start shoveling driveways for now and get some money that way. ask for cash for xmas not viedo games.......... there are so many ways to get money just stop and think about all the useless stuff you have laying around that you dont use, put it on craigslist. i can go on and on just start selling stuff on craigslist, not cheap but reasonable price!

    For what its worth the mounting/truck side is the same for both straight and V blades. Start with a less expensive straight blade to get you out plowing and keep your eyes open for a good deal on the v plow you want.

    x2! Sounds like you simply arnt in a good place for a V-XT, nor do you need it, get a 7.6 or 8ft strait blade and when your finances are right you can sell it and upgrade to a V.

    Can I ask what you have for a truck to put it on?

    Craigslist to help sell stuff.
