    I have a BOSS 9' 2" Steel Power V plow that has a issue of my hinge on the last rung is ripping out. Is this common? What can I do to prevent and repair this problem?

    I need help !

    Thanks.

    We can't say it is common but that is where all the stress loads and impact loads will show up. You are spreading the plowing loads over a 4' section vs. an 8' section in the normal straight blade. That will increase the unit loading in the hinge area. The BOSS Plow
