    Any thoughts on the BOSS poly straight blades? I don't have any experience with them and my first reaction is that they won't hold up as well as a steel blade. Some feedback I've gotten is the poly holds up as well, or even better, than a steel blade and the snow doesn't stick to them. I was also told that the steel reinforcements make a huge difference in the longevity and rigidity. I'm worried about hitting a curb a 10 mph and the moldboard cracking. Looking to put a BOSS poly straight blade on a John Deere XUV gator 625i, 825i or 855D.

    Thanks and I appreciate your feedback!

    My first plow was a poly. It was a every bit as strong as a steel unit. This has been debated many times......basically comes down to personal preference.

    I just got a poly 8'0 super duty boss straight plow. This will be my first boss plow, but the dealer that installed it for me did say there every but as good or better than the steel. Guess we'll find out soon.....let it snow.

    Boss has a 2 year warranty and will cover the poly if you can even crack it
