    Yeah the dealer said ever thing is installed but no plow. How is that possible? Waiting for 2 mos for installation , today is install day. Went to pick her up, but no plow. Joystick, owners manual, for salter. Salter was installed. Owner manual for plow, but no plow.. ask when and said didn't know. Did I miss something? Is this a normal delay from boss in the middle of the season? Can I contact boss directly and ask what's going on? Or do I just have the new guy jitters? Fustrating:mad:

    That's a bunch of crap. That's a drop in communication. He should be able to give you a answer on time somehow. He also should have told you he wouldn't be able to finish it completely.A few weeks ago I wanted a part from a dealer. One said they didn't know when. Another said back ordered and could be summer. I called their supplier and he said 2 weeks. The bottom line is someone can always give you a answer. It's just how hard do you want to get a answer. He sounds like he's not trying very hard. To bad that's the dealer you have to use.

    They seem like good honest guys, hell went to school and kinda sorta grow up with one of there main guys. I just can't see boss shipping everything but my PAID FOR 9'2" Poly v. Backorder is what I was told 11/01/2014. I'm gonna call boss Monday and try to get some answers. Same time I'm not trying to step on any toes, nor am I accustomed to taking it lying down. At least give me a proper reach around.:cry:

    I was in the same boat, Boss is out of the poly plows for some reason. Ordered mine 2 months ago as well and it is still not here. After some calls from the dealer a stainless V is here for the same price. Worked out pretty good.

    Haven't seen much here in the indy area at all this season. I guess it's time for me to look for A plan B truck anyway.... after all I'm gonna need a back up. I manage to be friend some local guys in my area, they are aware of my situation. With the SO CALLE back order and my DENTCO accounts I can only salt at this point. Gentleman said he be down to help, cash or 1099 said it didn't matter to him, one day he may need me. That's one think I like about all you guys. It's like we're compititors but evereveryone seems so eager to help. That's amazing.

    Nothing to get excited about. The ground is to warm and it is melting as fast as it is falling. I've yet to plow one thing this year. :cry:

    No I'm not in same canoe He only comes in part time to plow snow. Its not a main plow rig .
    I have 3 trucks 1 tractor and a Skid thats main plow fleet with 3 loaders and his truck once his plow come in for back ups or blizzard storms.

    I would have the dealer sent me the truck side they have that in stock but was going cost me extra shipping. So its a waiting game for the whole thing.
    They have plenty of the MVP3 in stock. They sold out of the MVP plus. They even offer sale me a MVP3 for same price as the plus model but I already have 2 of the plus and my father wants one like them.

    I do know it suckswaiting on something

    Yup sure does. I looked into westerns but I went with boss because the dealer is 2 miles from my home. I have a John deer and a CATS ( dealer )here in indy, been looking online @ skids, loaders but that's obviously over my head for now. Will be renting until I'm financially able to step up efficiency and production.

    I hope you guys kept your old equipment. After reading this I will definitely not sell anything until its replacement is up and running.

    I'd go on craigslist and buy any boss that will fit,sell it after the new one arrives.Or keep it for a back up blade.
