    Does anyone run a 9' boss on a F350 SRW? Just wondering how that would look? any pictures to share? I checked the weight and boss only had up to 8.5' straight or a 8.2 V. This is the thing that gets me tho, the 8.2V is heavier than the 9' straight blade. Just trying to look at this as an overall picture, resale, easy of use, driving down the road. Oh and I would be putting wings on it as well.

    I am asking if you guys would go with something smaller than a 9'. Like maybe an 8 or 8'6". Also wondering how it would look or feel driving that around the roads, I have a 9,2 V but thats not bad when driving thru town in the V

    Yeah angle towards the curb. But it is still wide, around town it is a little uncomfortable and borderline illegal in most places. Ok... Take and wing your 9.2 V towards the curb and I'll bet you will feel like the driver side is way out there. :eek: Your call. I wouldnt go much bigger than 8.2. or get a blizzard 8-10. Those boys can move some serious snow but a little on the heavy side! wesport

    It's not bad at all as long as your cautious, think ahead, and pay attention to your surrounding of course. It's only a few extra inches on each side...just have to watch those few extra inches. :salute:

    I have a 9' Straight Boss. Bought it last December and plowed alot of snow with it. I love it and dont have any issues driving around with it. The only places it gets tight is residential streets that have cars parked on each side and you can barely get a pickup through. I would go for it.

    I have 9 foot V's but I have trouble pushing out drive thru windows, especially at banks. You might take into consideration where you will be using it. Bigger isnt always better.
    I remember before the boss V I had trouble breaking open driveways too. When it is real deep all you can do is put the blade straight and go, if you angle it you just get pushed sidways into the snowbank.
