    As it says. I inherited a 9,2 Boss V ( guy owed me money:gunsfiring:) and need the push beam height so I can finish building the mount.
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Maverjohn

    I guess I will use that as a benchmark. They are the old style that had a chain to lift the plow

    Thanks Wild Bill, kind of hard to read but I think that says for a straight blade. I am looking for the 9-2 V blade maybe your paperwork has that, it would be nice if Boss still listed that info somwhereussmileyflag

    i went out and got my manual this morning (in the rain) correct that mesurement is for the straight blade ,they give no exact mesurement on the vee plow .
    you have to have it in the vee position and mesure it from the ground to the center of the horizontal mounting pin .asumning the edges are in good shape .if you send me your e-mail i will send you some clear images .

    Sorry if I came across as an azz Again I appreciate the info and the trouble (out in the rain) to look it up and scan it in.

    The plow was a basket case but it will have new Cutting edges on it and I will adjust accordingly. I will use the numbers given to build the truck mount and set as a base line

    Thanks again

    Joe
