    DOUGLAS DYNAMICS, L.L.C. ORDERED TO WITHDRAW CERTAIN ADVERTISING CLAIMS UNTIL TRIAL​


    On February 15, 2012, the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin granted a preliminary injunction relating to certain Douglas Dynamics (Fisher/Western v-snowplow) advertisements. The Court made a preliminary finding that, subject to final determination of the merits of the parties’ claims, statements that “the BOSS Power V-XT v-blade cannot trip in the V or scoop mode” and certain statements claiming or implying that users of blade-trip plows will be physically injured but users of Fisher/Western edge-trip plows will not were literally false. Accordingly, as preliminary ordered by the Court, Douglas Dynamics withdraws those advertising claims.

    Never used a Boss plow but think they are still a good plow. Why doesn't Boss just put a video out of Fisher bouncing down the road. Won't stop me from buying another one. :laughing:

    The folks at Boss sure like to whine. I'm a member of another forum and they requested that some information regarding plows on new F150s be removed because it was inaccurate in their eyes. Who are these people? The plowing forum police? :gunsfiring:

    I don't care what anyone says about BOSS, but that was a pretty bold statement by DD to say what they did about the BOSS plow.

    I've run a boss in the past and it trips in the Backwards V mode. And in the forward V, the wings would go backwards first and then the blade would trip.

    And as for being dangerous when it trips is none-sense. There is no way anyone would be standing close enough to a moving plow to become injured when it trips.

    I think BOSS has every right to do what they are doing. Basically DD was slandering BOSS plows in their original comparisons.

    And, DD needs to fire some lawyers for allowing that to happen in the first place.
