    Hi, I have a Boss V-Plow and I am wondering how often I should expect to replace trips springs? Also, does anyone know if Boss is coming out with a trip edge? Thanks for your help.

    They have a trip edge straight blade. I asked them via email if they are as there is a lot of rumors going around about it and they told me no they are not coming out with a trip edge vee. The trip springs shouldn't be a issue. Aslong as they aren't over tightened they should be fine.

    It is always good to have a spare parts kit just in case!

    I did have a problem with the wing spring bolts backing themselves out and my springs would be loose.
    I had to give them a few turns when I would go out to plow.
    I need to change the lock nuts on them. Never had an issue with the trip springs.

    Double up the nuts Nate, one on each side of the eye bolt bracket. Doing so also saves it from beating up the bracket if a spring does let go.

    Good point. That would be better. I will have to do that when I replace the push frame. Not sure if I told you or not but I got what I thought was a fair deal on the push frame, blades, and bolt kit online. Weather hasn't been cold enough to motivate me to install it. :)
