    Would like to see boss v plows have locking blade option so it could be used like a straight blade.

    I'd like to see that also. After awhile you get used to it but it would be easier hitting a button and knowing its totally straight

    If you hold the 2 left buttons or 2 right at the same time it will act like a straight blade

    Looking at the buttons it doesn't make sense but somehow that's how it works. At least on every boss V I've owned/used

    locking blade

    Been plowing with my boss 9.2 v since 97. Holding both buttons same time is how it's done.But it's not the same!

    “Since 97 “ well that puts it in perspective. It'll probably never change then.

    As described, holding both buttons on one side will give you the straight blade angle. If you look at your controller the buttons are designed so that it's easy to do. Once you realize it you will be amazed.

    hold a straight blade controller and a vblade controller side by side and it makes complete sense I don't know why everyone thinks having one button for one little function is so great
