    would like some advice. I currently have a snowbear sb200 on my 06 f250 6.0 crew cab which I use on my drive way with no problems .but it seems since I,am retired I have been elected the family snow plower for {inlaws, sons, daughters ]. do you think the 7.5 super duty boss would be a good choice to do there drive ways .I got a price of $3500 installed thanks for your feed back

    PLOW SIZE SEEMS KIND IF SMALL FOR YOUR F-250......

    I WOULD GO WITH AT LEAST A 8 FOOT SUPERDUTY BLADE.

    I THINK YOU WILL REGRET A 7.6 AFTER YOU PLOW WITH IT FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

    JUST MY .02 CENTS ON IT !

    I agree. For just a little more you can get an 8ft plow that is better suited for a full size truck.

    If you have the plow angeled or you go around a corner with the 7ft blade your wheels will be running in the unplowed snow. It will not be wide enough for your wheel base.

    Yes, I agree. Go atleast 8ft. The price difference should only be about $200-$300, if that. I plowed once with my F-250, Boss 7'6", and the next day I ordered the Boss wings. It's just too small for a 3/4 ton truck. I couldnt get close to anything because the mirrors stuck out as much, or a little more, than the damn plow. :dizzy: It sucked!
