    I have decided on my plow. I am going with the Boss V-plow. It is getting installed monday. I need to let them know what size though. Should I go with the 8'2" or 9'2" blade? It will be installed on a 2008 F-350.

    I will be plowing small-medium commercials and will also be plowing residential driveways.

    I figure that I could go with the 8'2" and jsut throw on a pair of wings if need be?

    I had the same problem when I was buying a plow I ended up going with the 9-2 I am glad I did. I would go with the 9-2 truck will handle it fine.

    Im thinking ill jsut go with the 9'2" but if I go with the 8'2" will it be wide enough or will I be packing snow with my tires?

    If you get the 9'2, they're some drive though you won't be able to go through. So if you like to shovel or have a smaller plow or have a blower, I'd go with the 8'2 and get wings.

    Get the 9'2. The 8'2 should cover you though. You'll plow faster with the bigger plow, that's what it's all about.

    I think it depends on your accounts. My 8' 2" barely fits through alot of my drive thru but a 9' 2" is better in the parking lots. What works for you

    My vote, as you can see by what i bought, is the 9'2". But my plowing is strictly rural.

    I do single lane logging road plowing for the most part, and at full angle or V, there is about 6" of width coverage for the wheel track. Could be less, i should measure it next time i mount the plow.

    When i plow on a curve in the road, the rear wheels are running into the banked snow. Been thinking of getting wings, and just using the driver side, as that's the side i'd be able to watch the closest.

    Looks like im going with the 9-2. Most of my lots are small-medium commercials and my resis are all straight double car driveways.

    I actually got the 9'2 for the same price as the 8'2 so cant complain lol

    Hey Alberta, I have one of each, 9.2 with wings on a 350 is a good match
