    I was plowing with my dxt this morning doing some cleanup and noticed that when i go to stack, my wing will start to fold back. i have noticed it before but never gave it much thought until this morning when i realized i have never seen the left wing do this, only the right.

    so is it normal that when i stack and have quite a lot of snow being pushed that the wing will start to push back?

    You bet it's normal. The cylinders are designed to give so you don't break something.

    i had the feeling it was but when i noticed only the right one was doing it i thought either its not supposed to do that or i just tend to put the right side up into the pile more. thanks guys, first v-plow so not used to that kinda thing

    I absolutely love it! it is the best plow i have ever plowed with. my dad flipped when i told him how much i spent on a plow this year and i told him it will pay off and half way through the year we picked up an old account but we had already filled the place of the account and that was my route but because i bought the plow i ended up with room for it because of that plow. I made him say i was right haha nothing like being right against your old man.

    i think the only way boss could improve in their lineup is if they made an expandable plow because they are said to be even more productive than a vplow. but i was talking to my dealer about the idea of boss making an expandable and he said while it would be a productive plow that he doesnt think theyll make one because in order to make one affordable it is built crappy. if they designed one the way they should be then it would cost too much

    Expandable V would be the tits! I'm getting a new power V to go with my new truck in a couple weeks. I think I will try out the detachable wings. They will be in the way on some accounts, but sure save time on the big lots.

    i never even thought of a expandable v! that would be crazy. i think there would just be too much into it though. i am hoping next year i can pick up a whole route of medium sized plazas just so i can buy wings. i think it would put my dxt to the max productivity because while it cuts my time almost in a 1/4 on our regular sized small lots, i would be able to do large plazas real nice. i have the 9.2 so i couldnt get wings unless i had big lots. i bearly fit through the atms now!

    buy a dxt! it is so worth it. what kinda truck did you get?

    I'm running a DXT with Wings, adding Wings is the only way to go IMO and well worth the money.

    I was using one of our dxt and noticed the right wing would take a second the stop when you release the button when reacting the plow. The fluid was a little low but once I topped it up its has no lag and reacts right away.

    This may be part of your issue as well.

    That is the assumption.

    All v plows have relief valves. Yes... Do they fold under normal use? No, they don't. No, they shouldn't. What he discribed is normal use fyi.
