    I want to replace my snoway 8' v plow. Can't decide between a snoway 9' or a boss 9'. Just added prowings to my 8'v snoway for a number of reasons.
    1- To see what a 9' plow would be like to drive around with.
    2-To see how they work.
    3-To see what a blizzard plow with power wings might be like.
    4-To see what the boss v with factory wings might be like.
    Plowed once with the new wings, so far seems like a must have.
    I know i need a Vplow no doubt. Use scoop and pusher position a lot also need to stack high and push over banks. (v-scoop helps gather and push farther out and higher in front of truck great for pushing off raised lots)
    Need to move a lot of snow from one end to the other.
    Read and hear bad on boss middle shoe and center tower hinge.
    But looks rugged and like the wings also I think it is supposed to be easy on off mount.
    Had pretty good service from my snoway for what i put it through and I understand they really improved the new models. CAN'T DECIDE HELP!!!

    Welcome to Plowsite:waving:

    I have also heard stories about that front shoe getting ripped off however I saw that Boss came out with a new cutting edge that gets rid of shoe.

    Yes U are correct at a $400 option with no upgrade or trade in discount option for the one on the new plow & I understand the new moldboard will have to be modified (HACKED UP) next years models are supposed to be redesigned for this update.
    Maybe I should wait or go snoway, I want to get better not go backwards.

    I personally like Sno-way better than Boss, but a lot of people here seem to think Boss is all that and a bag of chips. If I was you I'd give the Blizzard another look. I went to a dealer who sells Blizzard and Sno-way, asked about a V-plow. He was able to convince me that the Blizzard is far better than the V-plow for a few reasons, but the most convincing is that Blizzards get wider, V-plows get narrower. With my truck being a dually, I can't afford to get narrow. Even with a 9 foot plus V-plow, as soon as I started to put it in the V position, my outside rear tires would be in the snow. Check out the front page of the Blizzard homepage, there is an overhead view of a Blizzard outperforming a V plow.

    There's a couple guys on here with Boss V's that have wings that are wider than a Blizzard 810.;)

    The thing I like about the V over the Blizzard is its ability to stack in a tighter area. Straight blades just cant stack as high in a tight area even with wings. Also especially in my case sometimes I need to move a snow pile back and my 8' straight is just to wide and catches to much snow for my truck to move without getting a running start. Something that I know will lead to broken part.:gunsfiring:

    I would go with snow-way 28v municaple spec with down pressure. Beefier plow and still have that 5 yr warranty.
