    It doesn't seem to scoop up as high as my old BOSS did. Hopefully this won't be an issue.

    Yeah, some SNOW would be nice!

    Just to let you know,....This truck does NOT have Timbrens.



    Here is a pic of the BOSS's new Salt Spreader.

    I used the spreader 2x's already. Love it. Way better than the old Buyers.

    I don't know. We don't use sand here. With a vibrator (which I'm going to get soon anyway) it sould be fine as long as it's not too wet.

    Weight wise, it'll hold 800lbs, so thats not a big issue.

    I always am....But...

    Why do you say that?

    It doesn't stick out the rear any further than the old Buyers, and the Buyers spreader motor was venerable as it wasn't protected (just hung down). This has the heavy protective bar around it, and the motor is then inside the sealed motor box.

    for some reason in my area sand is the material of choice. I know alot of guys don't even get salt mixed into it. not quite sure what the idea behind that is, but i feel with no salt, the situation won't go away. I would love to be able to only spread treated salt.

    In my area we have a mix of customers. Some want salt but most want salt/sand mix because they think it is cheaper for them. We know it isn't but we can't convince them of that. We don't use straight salt below -12 degrees celsius because won't be effective on our lots.

    Thanks for all the comments. :eek:


    Here is an inside shot of the BOSS

    The 9.2 moldboards are built a bit beefier than the 8.2's. Other than that, everything else is the same.

    Nice looking outfit , But I have to agree with The Coach , How do you keep it from getting TO wet after you fire up the vibrator ?
