    Buddy of mines brother was at a expo in Illinois and saw the same plow. Apparently it is going to be ready to sell late this summer. Tell your brother to get us some pics. I want to see it.

    I saw it at the Heavy Truck Equipment Show in Chicago. Lots of X and Cross bracing. It's pretty heavy from what they were telling me. Looked like a Boss XT but Poly from the front. The back had a lot of extra metal.

    With as much backup steel that they used to support the poly sheet they should have just used a steel moldboard sheet anyway. :rolleyes:

    here are the pics guys, sorry for the quality its off my cell phone and the lighting wasnt the best.
    This is an 8'2" poly V-XT they have it hooked up against some bracing on the wall so i couldnt get the best pics from the backside.

    Wow, that sure looks like ALOT of bracing on the backside. Not saying that's bad, but just a lot of metal to have to take care of! (Which is why I bought the poly 8'2" V)

    the metal on the back of the boss's look to hold up really well, and id rather have a poly board so it doesnt get scratched up as bad.

    Great pics.

    I have 4 Boss pollys, Oldest of which is 4 years now. All are in perfect condition.

    Did anybody get a list price on this new V?

    My dealer tells me the poly plows are built heavier than the standard v's. I believe it, hope they last longer

    Didn't know they had the XT in a poly blade yet, Called my dealer yesterday and had him order me an 8'2" Power V XT Poly for our 08, Should be here in June Or July and we got in on the early season pricing (saved about $350.00) Never had one in poly before, hope they hold up well.
