    I have a 8.2' Boss V-Blade that I am wanting to store in a Storage Unit that is 5x10. Seeing as the opening is only 5 foot wide, Ill need to remove the plow from the truck, and slide it sideways into the storage unit. Anyone have a good method for doing this? Thanks in advance!

    Boss makes a whee kit, but it isn't cheap, as diesels mentioned, dollies work well and that's what I use for my v box as well

    Can't you get some scrap plastic 4'' pipe? Two pieces a little longer than your mold. Roll it right in two guys. Dollies as stated above is the way to go. The pipe will work tho.

    That's what I've always done.
    Now that I'm in my new digs, I'm looking at getting some pallet racking and putting that vertical space to use and storing the plows up off the floor.

    I maximized my storage shed. I put my c-plow on what was a dolly. as I cut 2 dollys in half. I used the swivel wheels and made a new bigger dolly for my snow blower and the other half I welded a pin on each side that slides into the snow plows wear skids. I sill have to finish the mount side yet. but it works.
