The only thing a V plow has over the straight plow is the scoop positon it works good for parking lots.. put you can put wings on the straight plow and there yea go prob solved.

The Vs works a lot better for us in gas stations even over wings and we could pile higher, but that may have been more the truck.

the BOSS seems to pile high enough, but we dont really have to worry about that cause they load the snow on dump trucks and take it away

I've plowed since I was old enough to run the tractor. Started on the tractor, then Bobcat then trucks. We have a 95 Chevy Dump with a Meyers HD commercial 9' dad uses. At work we run a 95 F-205 with an 8' Western Pro, a 96 with a Snoway(Junk) and just got our new 09 F-250 last week. It will have a 8' Western Pro as well. I will never run a plow and salt spreader on a nice truck I own. Salt is the fastest killer to a truck.

salt does kill a truck but if you take care of it and keep it washed when you get a warm day then you will be ok.. I mean like getting the frame and under the fenders and everything.

Ours get cleaned after every snow and they are still rotting apart. We have stuff that is supose to neutralize the salt and everything we put on them and it slows it is about all.

We run a roadways 2.5 Yard V-Box, a new Snow Way 1.5 yard V-box, a Western Pro Flow tailgate spreader and dad runs a old school buyers. The Snow way spreader sucks just as bad as there plows. Everyone I know that runs Boss around here hates them with a passion. Always breaking on them and no one carries parts in our area for them. I'm a fan of Western and Blizzard mainly because I can get parts quickly and reasonably.

I grew up on BOSS and my dad gave me his 2007 BOSS 8ft 6in with wings to me it looked brand new there wasnt even a mark on it.. then i was told that the new SNow Wya mega V is a good plow and i pulled the trigger on one and boy it looks bad A$$ but the darn thing lifted the first day fine and the next day it would barley lift so i took it down to the dealer and they put a new power pack in it and it worked great the first lift then got slower and slower so I said I dont think i want to have a plow like this the dont work so i got my money and BOSS back..
