    My rep here in KC is telling me that Boss is going to stop selling there Power V plow so I can't get it. Anyone else hearing this. Is the XT or DXT worth the extra money?

    Thinking of getting a straight with wings instead. Thoughts?

    I was told the same. I own both power v and dxt. I'm happy with both but the Dxt is a better plow. Less shock and chatter in the truck, easily trips over things that would have put me into the steering wheel using a standard mold bord trip plow and the flared wings seem to roll snow a little better and higher. But most importantly, it looks cool... Lol
    As for the straight blade, it depends on what the majority of your plowing is like. We do a lot of carrying snow so a v plow is a must.

    A V plow can do everything a straight plow can do, BUT a straight plow CAN NOT do everything a V plow can do.

    I believe he said they will quit making the Power V, thus the choices being V-XT or DXT. I can't imagine Boss would go to only making straight blades, the V is their claim to fame.

    Regardless I have not heard this either way, but do not run Boss so am not really up on the latest Boss news.

    Our dealer told us BOSS is going to stop making the Power V and focus just on the VXT & DXT. Because they sell those over 90% of the time. There's also rumors of a 3 yard VBX spreader for next year as well.

    Agreed. That's why I keep buying them and my straight blade is a spare.

    mathmatics, v blades only hold a little over 3 yards of snow, straight blades hold .6 yards, straight blades with various types of extensions (such as wide out, or meyer adjustable wings) hold over 4 yards. (i could be a bit off on the amounts, but straight with wings hold a almost a yard more.

    i would never want to give up the option of angeling my blade in scoop mode. Never:angry:

    Why don't you think before you type. Making that statement that Vplows are no good shows the world your IQ. Which just reinforces what we already knew.

    Yep I'm annoyed by all the facts you carefully laid out for us amateurs. What is the V mode used for? Or is that something else that isn't needed? Their is an old adage that you shouldn't argue with a fool because no one will know which one is the fool. I should know better.
