    Im trying to invest some money on snow business. The closest snow plow dealer we have is offering Hiniker and Boss. I want to get a V plow but not sure Boss or Hiniker? DXT 8-2" Boss going to cost me $6800 and 8ft Hiniker going to cost me $6300. Please, Please advise! If you have not operated any of them which one would you pick?

    Thank you very much!!

    The DXT's dual trip is very nice and reduces the amount of shock / impact the plow/truck from taking big hits.
    A friend has a Hiniker V and he likes it but he's only owned Hinikers with trip edges.
    As far the mounts go I like the Boss, it's fast/simple, no jack stands to mess with or other BS.
    Both are direct lift which is nice because the plow doesn't bounce at any height. Some will say chain lifts stack higher but that's another discussion that's been gone over and over and over numerous times.
    I have a DXT so I'm partial to it and for $500 more I'd look at the advantage the dual trip offers.

    I own both Boss and Hiniker.
    i've had fewer issues with my kiniker, the plug being the biggest issue after a couple of years on the hiniker.
    but then again the plug on the boss went bad too....

    having said that, at that price difference i'd get the Boss.
