    First post been lurking for quite a while lots of good info in here I am getting a boss V-plow for my 09 2500HD GMC 6.0L that has the plow prep package on it. I am doing a mixture of commercial lots and residential. I know I am getting a Boss, but Should I get the standard V or the Power V XT? Any pros and cons are appreciated would like some input. And for the search nazi's I have been researching and searching for a couple days. Thanks.

    how bid are the commerciallots that youwill be servicing? imo if you get higher snow fall averages i would get the vxt, you can throw sow over banks and it will spread out alot more of the snow vs put it right next to the curb.

    I run a 9.2VXT BOSS ,and I can push, scoop a lot more snow than my partners 8.2 V. More efficient and less time makes sense to me when going commercial plowing. If I was just doing single lane driveways, than a regular V would be adequate.

    I'd get a VX-T no question, simply because of the extra carrying capacity in scoop, and the farther throw distance.

    Well the con is the xt is heavier but idk by how much. I wouldn't put a 9'2 xt on there!

    Very little. So little in fact it makes no measurable difference to the truck.

    Why not? Either an 8.2 or 9.2 is a recommended application. Please do some homework before suggesting something that a person is about to spend several thousand of their had earned dollars on. Otherwise you're only skewing their thought's and spending their money on what may not have been the best choice from a non factual opnion.


    As the others have stated if you need the throwing and extra carrying capacity an XT is a viable choice.

    Thanks for all the input. I think I will be getting the 8.2 v-xt. Now just need to start doing a snow dance.
