    Hey guys, I am looking at a used truck and plow combo. I am not familiar with Boss or V plows, but from what I am reading they seem to be very good. I have been using an old 8' Fisher straight blade for 4 years now doing around 30 residential driveways most of which are gravel 100-150' long. The plow seems to work just fine. So my questions are.
    1. What would this plow be worth? Around 5 years old.
    2. Should I be concerned about no trip edge?
    3. Has there been any problems with this era plow?
    4. Will the v-plow actually be any advantage to me?
    Here are a couple of photos. I appreciate any feedback.

    its not a bad plow this is what you call a smart hitch 1 plow ,they operate very fast ,keep the center wing pivot pin greased and the attaching pins lubed up.it appears to be in very good shape for about a 1997 -98 vintage.be care full of the plugs keep them clean and greased up with dielectric grease.the headlights can loose ground some times you have to run an external ground.otherwise it's a good plow! enjoy:salute: $1800.00 to 2000.00

    The plow seems to be in great shape. It doesn't look abused or left untaken care of. I would jump on it. The cutting edge also looks new. Thats gonna save you about 400 bucks right there if u had to replace it. I love mine. You'll never go back to a western or fisher again. Also with the vees you can stack snow higher than a straight blade but be carefull that when you are stacking snow that you don't get hung up in the snowbank. (you'll bottom out when u are stacking because you can accaully reach up higher with that plow.) I don't have a problem with mine tripping down either. I haven't had a problem with mine. You'll love it.
