Yeah,grind it down weld it up and go back to work, its not a major issue.Of my 8 I have to fix one of these points every now and then,we just repair them when they are in the shop getting serviced after a snow.
We're having a brand new one installed on a 2001 3/4 ton Dodge later this week. You can be sure that I'll be taking a close look at it once it comes in, and having my mechanic take a close look at the welds you showed in your picture.
Can't be too careful.....
We bought a brand new one last season too - and we'll be looking at that one on Monday too, just in case.....
I'm curious. I've heard others talk about the fact that the Boss is a full trip blade which can't trip in the V position. Do you Boss fans think perhaps this could be caused by this? I'm not trying to bash Boss since I know a lot of you guys love them.
I looked at the SnoWay Lobo the other day and was highly underwhelmed. It was really "tinny" and not nearly as heavy as the Boss or Western MVP.
They already lost one. Me. I like the plow. I just was hesitant since even a Boss fan such as yourself admits it is high time they offer a trip edge plow.
I bought the MVP instead since members of this forum advised a trip edge plow would save wear and tear on both the plow and my vehicle. Eventhough I can't speak from experience, it made sense to me when advised that a trip edge design would protect both vehicle and plow a little more.
Maybe my MVP won't last any longer because of the trip edge design, who knows? Either way, it may have cost Boss a sale.

Can you explain your theory of the design flaw in more detail. I don't own a Boss, or have one in front of me to look at. I'm trying to understand what you mean. It does appear the welds are being overstressed.
