anyone else got vplow pics
Here is another Pic. It is a 1978 Oshkosh
There's a story in Snow Magazine today about a company in Alfred Station NY
Porter's Snowplowing and Excavation
Yes I Know porter Snowplowing! We went to school together. Snow Magazine I would like to read that article, I wonder where I can get a copy of it? He has some nice plow equipment.
It's not online yet.
Crash here's the article on that guy.
Revenue seems reallllly low for the property he's doing, even it was his only account. That rail yard is an absolute nightmare. We looked at it a few years ago, and my price would be over $200k per season for those properties..
Here is my Boss poly v when it was new.
How do you like that Poly v?
What does it look like now?
Grandview, it looks allot different now, it was new as of November and now has a bent A frame, bent left wing, new controller (the old one bit the dust in two months) and most recently the motor fried:redbounce. Other than that I love it lol
I gotta tell a man, I don't feel bad for you at all. We run 5 boss v-plows, one of which is an 8.2 poly. We love the boss v-plows. Yes we have bent a-frames several times the last few years and most recently bent the wing on the drivers side of the poly v, but it's all from operator abuse. It'll take some abuse but only so much. You can't go smashing into curbs I'll take a steel plow any day over a poly plow, because with a steel plow you can re-weld things. Good luck getting that poly piece to bend back after you've re-welded the braces and match the holes up after a few winters. Not happening
Not only that, but the way the steel plow is constructed, with the steel moldboard being welded to the bracing, it gives it superior strength in reinforcement. Granted, the poly's frames are heavier with reinforcement, the overall strength still doesn't equate to that with the steel moldboard.
You are right about that rail yard being a nightmare. I worked for the company for 8 years and I used to plow out dumpsters and the rail cars with a skid steer or the backhoe. I used to move cars around the yard and into the shops. it is a nightmare more than just plowing there. my wife and brother and uncle still work there.
It was a good article, I personally get snow mag just got the cover stories...The Porter one isn't too bad, it's shows how not to lowball accounts and if you think the price is too high, screw it, submit the bid, it's what you think is feasible.
I just wish the dealer had said to be careful when I asked about how strong the plow was, not "This plow is too big for your truck anyway, you will break the truck in half before that plow will give" . I guess i'm more mad at the dealer than Boss, I would still buy another Boss, maybe not from the same dealer. The pump thing was over the edge though.
