    With the amount of guys running expandable plows from the other brands, it wouldn't be a bad idea for BOSS to design there own.

    I still prefer my V, but would certainly be interested in what they came up with in new plow designs.

    I think the issue is DD owns the patent for expandable plows.

    An expandable plow does seem like a great idea. Power wings anyone?

    Customer Service Rep from Boss told me around this time last year that:

    1. There would be a Vbox in the future(she wasn't lying)
    2. There wasn't an expandable plow due to patent issues

    My understanding was that Buyers is not part of Douglas Dynamics, so my question is how do they have an expandable plow?

    Because the Buyers units wings don't slide and pivot forward, they're permanently fixed forward and only slide in & out. Same way Sno-way has their R series. Their wing's don't slide, they only pivot since you can't have both without DD's consent and that won't be happening any time in the near future.
