How To Guide: Plowing With Your BOSS Snowplow Power V


How To Guide:  Plowing With Your BOSS Snowplow Power V

THE BOSS Power-V Snowplow is a multiposition plow that lets you quickly and easily choose from a variety of blade positions including a Scoop, Straight, Angle or V-position--and anything in between.  The how to guide below explains each of the blade positions and best practices for each configuration.  

Power-V Position

In this position the blades are retracted toward the truck. This position is normally used for making the first pass. It's ideal for plowing a lane through deep snow or punching through snowdrifts and hard-packed banks or windrows left by city and county plows.


This position is used for carrying or controlling the snow--with the blades pushed out to form an inverted V shape. It's most useful for clearing parking lots or other large areas where snow must be pushed straight ahead--and not to the side. It's also useful for cleanup work at the end of the job. You'll find the Scoop-position to be the most useful for many plowing situations. And it's also a great time-saver.


In this position the blades are positioned to either the left or right side of the vehicle. Use this position for windrowing or for widening the first pass.


This position is normally used for backdragging--with the blades positioned directly in front of the vehicle. For example, to remove snow from the edge of a building, raise the blade and drive up to the building. Then lower the blade and back up--pulling snow away from the building.

With a little experience, you'll develop your own methods for plowing and learn exactly which plow position to use for each pass.

Deep Snow

In deep snow raise the plow several inches off the ground to shear off the top layer. If you have a Power-V Plow, use the V-position for the first pass. Then change to the Scoop or Angle-position to widen things out. You should push just enough snow with each pass to get the job done efficiently without overloading your equipment. A good rule of thumb is to use a full blade width for two inches of snow or less, three quarters of the blade for four inches of snow and a half blade for six inches of snow or more.

Wet Snow

The best advice is this: Once you start, finish the job. Wet snow left in windrows overnight can freeze and turn into tank traps by morning.

Follow these few simple tips and you will be on your way to using your BOSS Snowplow to its maximum potential.
