    I got the new style cutting edges put on the plow today.

    Anyone here interested in pics of the V, straight and scoop positions?

    If so, I'll snap some on Saturday and try to get them posted.

    If not, I ain't going to take up my time. :nono:

    In case some of you don't know, it's the new style that gets rid of the rubber "hoof".

    Also, some have stated that it requires modification of your moldboard. However, it does ONLY if you're plow is real old.

    These cutting edges just bolted on in place of the stock.

    Thinking of new edges on Boss

    I'm thinking of purchasing a new 9-2 Boss V with the new edges from the start. Please let us know how they work.

    Sorry 'bout not getting the pictures yet....

    Just had 7ish" of snow here over the last 2 days, it's been the first real test of the new cutting edges.

    They work good, IMO I think it's better having the solid blade all the way across without having to worry about tearing the rubber "hoof" or whatever it's called, off.

    I would highly suggest that if you're getting a new plow, that without a doubt go with them from the start.

    If you're going to put them on a plow you already have, it's a toss up on whether or not you just want to wait until you need new cutting edges or not.

    For me, I'd rather put them on now, rather than tear the "hoof" off at 1 am in the morning, and then limp around until the plow shop opens, or try to repair it when places need to be plowed.

    Well.....yes and no.

    The old "Snow Catcher" was the term for the two triangular steel pieces you had to weld to the back of the blades.

    "Hoof" best describes the newer rubber snow catcher type.

    There are still LOTS of pre-hoof BOSS's out there plowing.

    I put a set of new blades on my plow I bought new last year and had to modify my mold board. What year is your plow

    Yes, if you had an older Boss you will have to enlarge the bolt holes on the plow to accommodate the new bolts for the new edge.
    The new edges with the curb guard and new center will not fit on The older RtII's and they did not have the center Hoof, snow catcher, that #@$:realmad: piece in the middle.. lol how about the pics of your new edge?
