    Guys and Girls, I need help quick. I am looking for a drag chain for my Boss 8' V-Box spreader.
    I have looked all around my area and no one carries "Boss" Spreader parts. They tell me that it was made by someone else and Boss put their decals on them. I don't care where, who or what made them, someone has to have a drag chain that would fit.
    The measurement from center of pin to pin in one link is about 1 3/4 inches. The chain itself is 14" wide. The Serial Number on the spreader is 881741 if that helps.
    I need help locating one soon as I don't want to wait till the last minute when the snow starts flying!!
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    I did find a drag chain on ebay (item # 260303364103) but the measurement from pin to pin is not the same and I don't think it will fit my sprocket...or will it??

    i believe swenson made them for boss, or at least all the parts looked the same check out a chain for one of those and see how close they are in size, good luck.
  3. I thought Monroe and Boss are the same if they are I have a chain with one season on it. I will check your measurments and get back with you or PM your phone #

    Thanks eveyone!
    Sharper Image...I will wait a day or so to hear from you if you have one you'll sell. If not, then I did locate on through Central Parts Warehouse. And they are cheaper than J-Thomas.
    Again, Thanks Guys!!
