    Yes Plowed 6 hours with it. Truthfully I did not even notice a difference. Just a little wider. I also run timbrens in all my trucks.

    If I may add in. I had a 93" GMC 2500,6.5 diesel,4l80 and we put a 9'2" on it and it handled great. We had to adjust the torsion arms all the way up but it worked great and still did great on fuel. Good old trucks.

    ok thanks for the input guys, most of my lots should be close next year, so weight isnt going to be a factor i think, it going to be traction. well thanks again im looking more and more to buying my new blade some time before next winter.

    hesturf, do you bun a v box for ballest or another source?

    I don't have a boss but this is more in regards to the width - go for the 9.2, you won't regret it. I have a lot of properties in a city area and my plow never hinders my ability to plow a driveway. If anything, it makes very short work of the smaller ones. In V mode, its nice and skinny to get around or between things.

    It all depends on what you are doing. My 9.2 will not work at banks and tight areas. That is why I keep it in wide open lots works well. On the other hand my 8.2 works well at banks clinic and so on. You have to know your line of work. Then max the plow to it and save in the long run.

    I think if your a one truck operation, you are better off with a Boss 8'2 V with wings compared to just having the 9'2, being able to remove the wings for tight places is a big plus. I've had some places where I was glad I didn't go with the bigger 9'2. I've had places where the 8'2 barley fit into with the wings all the way forward.

    Milwaukee, I like seeing people build there trucks as appose to spending high dollars on something that will be exposed to the salt world. IMO you appreciate the truck more when you put it together yourself.

    I second the 8.2 with wings over the 9.2. It holds way more snow and you can always take them off for narrow area or a heavy wet snow.

    That old yellow monster in my avatar is a Caterpillar D9H, one of the greatest crawler tractors ever built. I'd give anything to try out a D9H or an older D9G and hear that D353 Cat engine scream. They just don't build equipment that strong anymore that will last as long as those old machines did.
