    You Boss and Myers guys ever wonder where your plow cylinders come from? Good ol Western New York just outside Buffalo. The company I am working for this winter has the contract and been making them for years. I haven’t seen any Myers stuff come through since the fall, but Boss has been going pretty strong for a while now. These Boss cylinders are fresh out of paint ready for stickers and packaging. Don’t too excited all you “Made In USA” guys because most of the raw materials comes from overseas and South America. I learned that when I became machinist just I because I make it here doesn’t mean it’s from here.
