    Is this something that just happens to a plow without have the cutting edge with the curb guard on it? Is it easy to repair? Also I see these plows selling for big coin, should this be a big deduction or should I stay away from this plow all together cause it was just abused? It was a maintenance truck plow for a local college. I know the picture isn't the greatest but basically the plow bottom outer 5 inches is ground down approximately half an inch on the left wing and at least 1 inch on the right wing opening up the bottom tubing. I just don't know the difference between "used" and "abused". Thanks for any help! O'ya I have no interest in ponies! but thanks for reading this.

    Cutting edges wear out. That's just what they do. Is it a sign of abuse if they're worn out? Absolutely not! I would be more concerned about the condition of the moldboard, cylinders and wiring harness.

    If you can get it at a good price and every thing else is in good shape, just get a new cutting edge and fire up the welder! Patching the bottom corner of the blade is an easy fix.

    Not concerned about the cutting edge. Thats like brand new. I'm worried about the red part if thats the "Moldboard" . This is going to prove I'm nothing but a brick layer but why do they call it the moldboard?

    What, in your guys opinion, is a fair price for that plow? Come with just what you see in the pic.

    The wear on the ends of the wings isn't a major issue as long as it isn't excessive, which it doesn't appear to be by your pic. You'll find many plows with it due to running it against curbs. Whole reason you can install curb guards and why Boss so conveniently incorporates them into he new style cutting edges just like the plow on the pic now has on it. If the curb rash worries you it's not tough or expensive to lay a plate in there, weld it up and clean it up with a little grinding.

    But, since this is a vee with visible curb damage what I would be doing is checking it over very closely to be sure its not bent or broken anywhere else from the curb impacts/running..like in the center hinge area as well as sighting along each wing to be sure their not twisted. It does happen when you run curbs with them.


    Although most of this is a moot point to you brickslayer if this plow is intended for your crew cab long bed truck...because it's not wide enough. You need a 9.2 for a CCLB truck. :nod:

    Nothing wrong with it. If you see a plow without curb rash that tells me the plow doesn't get used much(.Tim):rolleyes:

    A 9.2? isn't a 8.2 too heavy? At least that is what everybody else says. What would you say its worth$$$$$$$$$$$$?

    I would say maybe worth $2K - $2,500? If the undercarriage is transferrable to your truck, then maybe $3K. Make sure you get the control kit for it as well. If the control kit and undercarriage are not available, plan on spending at least a grand to get your truck ready to accept this plow (for new undercarriage, control kit, headlight adaptors-if needed, and labor-if needed).

    Nice pink pony Tom!!
