    9' Boss skidsteer trip edge. Will be used in the HOA we service along with our erskine hiflo snowblower. We will be putting Boss wings on this plow as well, should make it 10'10" wide with wings. Really wanted a Kage system but you cant beat 2500 bucks for this plow, and we already have the wings.

    Why does the 5th bolt look bent?

    B/c of the way it only catches part of the cross beam. We will prolly cut off a part of that corner so it will sit flush, but for now its plenty strong. All 4 bolts catch the cross beam plus all the extra bolts to sandwich the plates together.

    You should really use grade 5 bolts for plow mounts. Grade 8 will not break as fast (if they break) should you hit something hard enough. The push beam on old school Fisher speed casts uses two grade 2 bolts so there is some give (like a shear pin) is there is a hard enough impact. Nice equipment.

    Grade 2, 5, and 8..... F@#$ that! You should use L9's like I do! LOL!!!! JK!!! I used a L9 as a king pin on a meyer and it ate through the A frame after 2 pushes. Not going to do that again.

    I completely forgot about that, thanks for the notice!


    he usually runs a dual stack exhaust but since it gets a box and transfer tank in the winter he just turns the 90* out and puts this tip on.

    Why not just modify the plow mounting point instead? That looks hideous!

    A heads up, on those stock 08 20's, if those tires are the goodyears that come from factory, I had no traction with them last year on my truck.
