Storing V plows

    We purchased some pallet racking like you would see at Lowe's today to store our snow plows. The straight blades are an easy fix but the Boss poly-v's are throwing us a curve. Hoping someone else's is trying this. We are thinking about creating some kind of a pallet to sit the plows on to lift them with a fork truck up into the racking. Any ideas we are able to sit them on the floor but it would be easier to put at least one up off the floor.

    Well when you have them on the trucks, instead of taking them off and leaving them on the concrete. Just drop them on a pallet. Thats what I would do.

    Not sure if it's a big deal or not, but Western suggests that you store it in the Vee position. I believe it's best for the cylinders to be retracted.

    I also agree with you answering your own question. Actually, what is your question...

    Like this. they just sit on pallets. I use 8 ft by 4 ft pallets.You can block up the push frames if you want, but the boss plows are pretty steady.

    Onsight that is exactly what i am doing thanks for the great pic, I had not thought about the 3pt stuff but that looks like it would work out great. Did you make the pallets your self or just find them?

    I get the 8ft pallets from my trailer parts supplier. The racking works great. 3 point implements are just on 4ft pallets

    You can also store them on the pallets/racks face down if necessary if you drain the reservoirs first.
