    Ok, so I went to take the plow off truck today, and I as I went to back up, here is what I saw. (I've also included a play by play of my thought process here)

    1. "What in the hell is this?!"

    2. "Oh you have got to be kidding me!!!!!"

    3. "Ahhhh Man"

    4. "Damn, I have no idea at all how long I plowed with it like that! Three storms since Wednesday! This could have been bad."

    Well I guess the pin snapped and fell out somewhere along the way, I'll have to keep an eye on it in the future, atleast its an easy fix

    Wow, you got real lucky it waited til you took it off the truck to fall apart! Sure wouldn't be something i would want to encounter though!

    Well, I have seen quite a few fishers do that. But I have yet to see a Boss do it. Time to hit the boss market?

    Its just one clevis pin that connects the A frame (which holds the hydaulic rams and the plow blade) and the lower head gear (which connects the plow to the mounts on the truck).

    So throw a pin in it, drag it to your nearest Boss dealer and pay him some money to dispose of that thing and drive home with a new red plow on your truck. :D

    One of the things we do is to take a walk around the rig after each lot. One to stretch you legs, get some fresh air and wake up and inspect the rig you would be surprised what you might find. Also clean the windows and lites shake the plow check spreader. Takes about a minute but we have found small problems that we corrected quickly that could have been much worse.A ounce of prevention verse pounds of pain...
