    I considered it last year, but in all reality they were untested whereas the Boss 10' has been out in the field for several years. I hate being a beta tester, and based on how so many new releases go nowadays--despite the manufacturers claims--I just want something proven. And this is any manufacturer, just look at the EXT and what a disaster that was.

    So now I'm kinda locked into Boss. Boss dealer is a half mile away. Another one is 10ish minutes away.

    Thought the 2 closest Fisher dealers were different. The 10ish minutes away Boss dealer is also a Fisher dealer, I wasn't aware of that. Or I forgot. Maybe I forgot that I forgot.

    And last...I can drive @Defcon 5 nuts by having a direct lift instead of a chain lift plow.

    The traitor sells Fisher and BOSS side-by-side? How dare he.

    Don't you have SnowEx also? Does SnowEx make a version of that V?
    Edit: Nevermind, I looked and it doesn't look like they do. (yet?)

    You have two BOSS dealers within 10 minutes of each other? I know Grand Crapids is a populous place but that seems oddly close.

    My nearest competitor I consider "close" at 30 minutes away. And he's technically in another state, so I can't even complain (much).

    Can you believe that crap?

    SnowEx seems to be screwed by DD most of the time. Fisher and Western took the expanding plow while the SnowEx v plow took a couple years. And the 10' V is non-existent. Not sure who thought up that marketing plan.

    The other Boss dealer is also a Toro dealer.

    The closest Boss dealer mostly sells to municipalities in conjunction with Monroe Truck Equipment, however that arrangement works out.

    Ah, that makes sense. I do know of another pair of dealers, literally across the street from each other, but they don't sell overlapping equipment (truck plows on one side, atv/utv stuff on the other)

    I was gonna suggest a 9.2 with the slap on wing kits. cut edges for them are expensive though unless you can make your own.
    would bring it to around 10' 4" or so if I remember last time I measured one.
