    If you had a choice between the 8'2" Poly V and the same size XT-V, which would you choose? Why?

    I would choose both of them, because then I can have one of each.:D But If it was one or the other it would have to be the ploy i think. It is my 3rd year with one and they seem to work really well. Plus the snow wont stick to the ploy plow.

    Get either one, there both cheap. It's the thing behind the plow that costs a lot!:D

    I disagree. It doesn't stick as bad, but it does stick.

    Spray either blade surface with Fluid Film and snow doesn't stick either.

    Well I know with mine it didn't stick, it only stuck to the cutting edge and to the back of the plow, I never put any fluid film on it or anything, just wash it after every use. Maybe it is because it was only 2 years old and kept inside. I just bought a brand new one a few weeks ago for my new truck so I am hoping to do the samething with this one.

    If snow sticking to the moldboard is your biggest concern, you could always just rub some Vagisil on them!!!!

    Go for the power v-xt, they are mean looking!:realmad: I'm not %100 sure about this but I was told that if you have a poly blade then you should stay away from gravel parking lots or driveways, aparently they get all scratched up then the snow sticks to them. Just something to keep in mind if you have any gravel jobs.

    has anyone plowed with the V-XT yet, and if so, how do they compare to the regular V's?

    Plowed with mine yesterday,first time useing a boss v though so I cant compare it to the regular V.

    I love it though.If you have it installed make sure the dealer gets all the air out of the system.Mine seem to have some in it.I need to get some more fluid and try to get the air out.

    someone was telling me that they seemed to operate slower than the orignal V's, so I was just wondering how much truth there was to that.

    I dunno,its fast.Id bet there is no difference.

    Same blade just taller wings.Only other V that I have used was an older sno-way lobo and they are very slow compared to boss.

    Not sure if I really like the spring return on the wings.That is really my only dislike.They slam back pretty hard.But I guess thats how they are the fastest.

    if the wings are slamming back real hard, not just a light tap, then you need to adjust the return springs for less tension. their is a nut on the eyebolt attached to the spring that you can loosen.

    I thought the same thing since they arnt on boss' website.... but.... I was at the grocery store and pulled up to a older man with a spankin new ford std cab F350 with a Poly 8'2" power V. I asked him how he liked it and what not. He said he just purchased the truck two weeks ago and just in time for the 6" storm. I cant remember the name of the truck outfitter but the name was stamped in the snow deflector.
