Boss V 8'2" Center Lower

    My cutting edges were worn toward the center...I replaced them and now the wings are off the ground. The bottom of the center shoe is just a little lower than the cutting edges; the shoe isn't holding things up. My truck is pretty level, I only have about 600-800 pounds in the bed--at the back. A while back I had lifted the front to compensate for sagging and at that time I lowered the plow frame to a one hole below the lowest setting. I haven't been out with the new edges but it would more than likely dig in. Do I need to move the bumper stop (page nine of manual #8??) Any help would be appreciated.

    Plow mount needs moved down more. When in the v position the plow should be about level when you put in in scoop position don't worrie of the wing tips are off the ground the weight of the snow will push the front of the truck up and level it out.

    Make sure mount is at correct height. 15 1/2" at the center of the pin holes IIRC, and then adjust the bumper stop.
