    Just put a new set of BOSS formed cutting edges on my Power-V. The center of the formed egde (section that replaces that stinking horse shoe) is lower than the rest. What has worked best for breaking these in without damaging pavement?

    One good night of plowing will take care of it.

    Put a picture up here, you may need to raise up your push bar one hole set. If the tip of your wings while in scoop aren't touching the ground.

    I have to agree somewhat, but, I also don't want to scratch our customers driveways so we will continue to do some break-in.

    Ive never had a set of those drag that center formed section. Either your mount is not at 14.5 or the rubber wedge on the a frame needs adjusted.
