    just bought a dxt V Was wondering if you can put this plow on a dolly, and how..? When I purchased the plow I had it put in back of truck on a skid, when I went to hook up to it I had a hard time hooking up... Im figuring skid is about same height as a set of casters... Thanks..

    I bought the caster wheels and am very pleased with there operation. I believe they came in around $150, I take my plow off after every storm so it is more than worth it.

    The height it's removed from the truck is the exact height it has to go back on to line up smoothly

    I had a dolly fabbed up at my local exhaust shop out of a piece of u channel. Had to put floor Jack under plow Mount and raise truck slightly when used in my F250. Works perfectly with my F550 w/o Jack.

    Here's the Boss Dolly kit, I believe you also need to have the Feet kit too for the Dolly's to slip into Feet Brackets.

    I called BOSS and they are in the process of having one for the DXT....

    My question is, if u put them on plow first..... what happens when u lower plow and it has a quick drop...?

    I guess that's a good question, but I have my "drop" at stock pressure/speed. If your drop is too fast you're going to end up breaking something while plowing anyway, imo.

    I just bought the dxt.. I have to adjust it for a slower drop.... but im still concerned about it if the system for the casters is the same... I always tried to drop my fisher slow and a low drop onto the dolly but there were times when it hit hard.....

    I normally press the down button for a second and release. I have to repeat 4 or 5 times before the back wheels are on the ground, then I drop it the rest.

    I haven't looked at one myself, but Dealer told me it would be EASY to fab it up. supposedly the center dolly spot is a square hole on a DXT and the other plows are round.. so some welding to make a male square input for the center dolly would be easy.
    Thank You,

    If you're moving a plow around inside a shop, a forklift or pallet jack slides nicely under the mounting arms. We've moved ours around this way for years, and even pick them up and set them on pallet racks this way. Big plus if you have multiple plows and don't want to mess with a solution for each one.
