    For all gravel ect I would recomend something with not as steep of an angle of attack. The bosses have a pretty good angle of attack witch is good for scraping down to pavement but....well it scrapes well so it has more likelyhood of digging in. Can you get fisher localy? They dont have a sharp angle of attack.

    Or does the boss trip edge have a different angle than thier full trip? I havent seen a trip edge boss up close to be honest so I dont know.

    i love my boss trip edge if u go with just set the shoes so the blade wont dig in .you dont want to scrap the gravel away . any plow will scrape and dig in if you dont set the shoes even fisher .
     
  4. Yes Fisher is availible here,with the trip edge does snow ice build up between the moldboard and the edgeafter it trips?I like the idea of the boss with no chains and I hear the hydraulics are faster,is this true?
