• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

I have ruled out the Hiniker plows thanks all for your input. What are the older Boss 8'2" V plows like?? I have a chance to buy a used one, attached to a 92 F250 for a reasonable price. What should I be looking for?? I know I should not be buying a truck that has plowed already but money is tight.

Here are somethings I would check. Make sure the bottom of the plows center tower is not worn on the bottom,look at the molboard to see if the are tweeked,check cylinder attachment points to see if the have been strained.If it is not a minute mount check the keeper pins and make sure they go up and down in their holes properly.Look behind the cutting edges for rust.Check the hinge for cracking or repair.Alot of things to check and a little of some of these may be present just make sure it is not severe.I have 9 Boss plows 5 are old style permenant mount which are a much better set up than the minute mounts and are extremely tough.The minute mounts are still very durable but take longer than a minute to mount.

At least it was easy to put back together again,this year I will not be welding anything I'm just going to put bondo over it so it looks good then Im going to paint it with chucks paint,it melts metal so it should then create the repair and hold the break together.
