    I don't honestly see the point of having both trip edge and full trip in one plow. To me its alot more moving parts to break and replace. Plus its extra weight. In the video when the blade went to full trip the trip edge launched the whole blade in the air like a huge spring. I like boss I think they make a good product Just my 2 cents on this new product

    I have never used a trip edge, but is that normal in the video? Is that what happens? It jumps in the air that much?

    In my mind, a trip edge sort of did what an section plow does, but I have never used one.

    The dual trip design allows both plows to share similiar parts and allows integration of the Dxt without having huge amounts of extra parts. The trip-edge system is quite simple and frankly doesnt add many moving parts over the Vxt. From what I have seen if you wanted, you could buy Dxt wings and cutting edge/trip edge and you could convert your standard plow to a Dxt.

    When I saw it I was thinking 46" would block a lot of air.Overheating could be a problem.

    X2... 46" is beyond excessive IMO

    A 550 shouldn't look like a kids s10 when its behind a plow...

    It will look good behind a little Pete or KW though.

    Big is better ?

    I really don't see Boss using 46" boards on a 8.2, if you watch the video you will see how close
    the blade tips when folded back already get to the ground on that 550....

    As for the 550 shown in the video, I think bigger is better, I would love to windrow a foot of snow with that taller blade... and really don't see a downside to the size... think operators will really enjoy the increased blade height when it comes to blade tips visibility over the hood...Thumbs Up

    Also like that idea of custom graphics and paint schemes.. ...then Dodge guys could have HEMI orange plows... Fords could have their Blue Oval ..... GM's could have their Gold plows etc.... Thumbs Up

    There has been a lot of bashing. Without a single push in the real world. Is it a good idea? I don't know, only time will tell. I'm interested to see how the 9 and 8 will work. I also suspect for that size of plow the 46" will have to be scaled back because of the geometry. So I'll say it way to go BOSS!:salute: But for now I will stick with what I have and if it proves itself maybe i'll switch.

    Looks nice to big 46" that's a big blade. On a side note. Did you see on the left hand side of the cutting edge. Looks like a few bolts
    Have broken off.

    It can jump depending on how fast you are going. Generally it just trips the edge back and pops back forward again.

    Most people buy a trip edge because they don't want the blade to fully trip while plowing- me being one of them. At work we have a Superduty Trip Edge Boss straight blade and its a nice setup, I wish they would've just used this design instead of being "different".

    I thought that too. Then I stopped the vid and looked closer. There is a second piece of the cutting edge bolted on at the center with different bolts.

    For those that don't want the full trip, just tighten down the full trip springs.
