    I have a Boss 9.2vxt ploy plow and i run 100% on pavement. the last cutting edge I got somewhere around 40hrs before it was about to hit the center hinge point.

    What are yall getting for hrs on the cutting edge?

    That seems like really fast wear to me. My DXT has 25-30 hours on it and the edge is still like new. Maybe 1/4 inch worn down.

    wow, seams like i am getting LOW life out of mine. I run in float and never in a "V" configuration, some driving in Scoop position. I run around 15mph to keep the snow from blowing over. Any thoughts on what I am going wrong? I installed a set of 3 shoes, and got 6.5 hours out of them.. This is getting costly!!! any thoughts??

    I would talk to your dealer and send an email to Boss tech support. I know you're plowing a lot more snow than some of us, but you're measuring your life in hours, which is relative no matter where you're at.

    If your plowing on snow covered roads it will last,but you plowing roads and its grinding on the road and heating up ,you won't last long.In this case,you might want to have the shoes on.
