    Hello im new to this site seems to have a lot of good information. Im looking at a Poly V plow with hand controller and smartlock arms just wondering what the pros and cons are. Is there anything that i should make sure and check before i buy this plow. Never had a V blade before or a poly not sure what i should look for. They want 4700$ install with new mount and wires and with hand remote. here are some pics please help if you can thank.

    looks clean, i paid 4200 for mine used installed with handheld. do the wings come with it that are on the one in the pic? if they do there worth a good 600+ new. check over hoses, look at the plow side 13 pin plug for any bent pins(mine just broke one and i heard there a common prob.) look for any cracks in welds or cracked paint where the metal may have stressed. looks like they kept it clean, theres not any rust i can see in the pics. good luck with it i love mine 2 years without any major problems.

    Is that for a new plow or a used one? What size?

    If it is new that is a decent price, if it is used the price seems high.

    never owned a poly so no help there but the V's are the way to go......they do everything a straight blade will and then some! BOSS makes great products and I assure you that you wont regret the decision....price seems a little high if its used but at least the mount and more importantly the wiring will be all NEW

    I bought a 9-2 poly used 5 yrs. ago and really like it. Supposedly heavier than steel? The framework, I was told. Yours has the wings also? Not sure from the pics, but it looks like your cutting edges might be getting worn. Mine wear faster in the center, some wear faster on the outsides. If you're having it installed, make sure you put whatever ballast in first or let them know so they set it up right to compensate. I need to research how to adjust mine so they wear more even. I put the timbrens on my super duty real soon after the plow because it's so heavy. If you don't have suspension help, you will soon after. Enjoy.

    Truck looks pretty good. I like that body style. I have a 00 with the same vee and also a rear plow. I put one of those gates on also. Can see better and get salt bags, shovels out a lot easier for a short guy. Congrats. Have fun.

    I'd put alot of weight in the rear or that 9'er will be driving not you. Now granted my 250 is a gasser but with the 9', it's a bit much, the 8' gets you knocked around. Now the 9' on the diesel loaded down and it's just like going to get groceries.

    NICE truck! That baby is clean! You have a nice setup, now. Hook yourself up with a spreader, and you're all set. Where abouts are you?

    First off hulk2184 nice set up looks like your ready to have some fun. 2nd gusdust, try and move the rubber spacer between the center section and the pushframe. in will bring the center of the plow down out will lower the outside edges. if it is already all the way in you might need a spacer.

    Thanks White Knight. I looked in my manual but can't find anything about the rubber spacer. In, toward truck, brings center down? Slid out, toward plow, brings outside down? It is all the way towards truck now so I'll move it out.

    Just checked it out in better light. Now I know what you mean and how it works. It's slid all the way toward the truck so my plow frame must be too high.
