    I have 2 plow shoes on my boss super duty plow. I would like to know if I should leave them on or take them off? a buddy of mine uses a fisher plow and he took them directly off. Any suggestions on what the difference would be thanks

    Depends if you want to see pavement after you plow or not.

    If you are plowing a paved surface lose the shoes--If you are plowing alot of gravel drives you may want to keep them on--they keep the plow from digging too deep IMO.

    I have them on my plow but spaced up so they won't hit the ground. That way they don't get lost. I have never used them.

    I leave mine on and just let them wear down with the cutting edge. Helps the edges last a little longer.

    Slappysdump is right. Keep them on if you're plowing gravel driveways and take them off if you're doing pavement. Boss had a technical article on their web site at one time that explained this but I don't know if it's there anymore.

    I do do a 50' by 200' area that's all 21b gravel. I just lift the blade a bit instead of putting the shoes down.

    mine is the same, they are on the blade but all the washers are on the top side so they don't do anything. If the need ever happend I could adjust em.
