    ++++1 and what happened? how hard did you hit something? I have seen this many times before. Doubtful boss will cover it. A new wing will run ya about 1,200 bucks.

    Honestly guys, and I'm not knocking Boss plows, but I have seen a LOT of this. Same spot almost everytime. Usually welding them back or patching works, but the more heavily abused ones just keep tearing apart worse and worse everytime.

    I've hit a lot of stuff with mine and no breaks so far,but I don't plow a lot in the v position.

    It's my friends plow. I don't think it was a single hit. One of his condo's has a lot of speed
    bumps. I hit one in my skid and almost knocked myself out,my door opened abit and got jammed by the bucket raising a couple inches.The cab raised just enough so safety bar wouldn't let the foot controls work. Took me10 mins to figure out what had happened.
    Thought i'd have to climb through rear window!(bobcat) I'm 6'4" 225 ,old and tired! My friend has run boss v's for years and never had this problem with his all steel plows.Plus it was one of his workers who plowed the most with it. Maybe a tad to aggressive?

    Mine has been cracked up there a couple times. I ground it all out and welded it up this spring.

    I bumped my controller once on mine driving down a road, and it struck a railroad track at about 35mph. Did something similar to the wing and it also broke a part of my cutting edge off.
