How To Prepare Your Snow Plow For Storage

Posted by Jodie Gilroy on Mar 13, 2012 1:01:00 PM

Your BOSS PLOW is designed for heavy-duty, rugged service with minimal maintenance. To ensure that it gives you the same high performance year after year, preparing your snowplow for storage over the summer months will extend the life of your BOSS snowplow.  

 

Check out the step by step guide and video below for properly preparing your BOSS V-Blade or Straight Blade snowplow for storage.  After completing these steps you can rest assured that your BOSS blade will rest well over the summer months and will be ready for you when the snowflakes fly again.

 

Putting the Power-V Plow into Storage

1. Before you detach your plow, grease any exposed chrome or nitro bar on the lift cylinder rod and on the angle cylinders to protect them from corrosion.

2. Follow the normal procedure for dismounting from the truck.

3. Power the lift tower forward until the lift cylinder is completely compressed. This will protect the lift cylinder from corrosion.

4. Disconnect all electrical plugs and coat each connection with dielectric grease (lights, valve assembly, pump, pump solenoid, and battery). Install all dust caps and plugs provided.

5. Touch-up any rust spots or chipped paint.

6. Loosen the trip return and the blade return springs.

7. Grease the coupler spring pins.

8. Grease the vertical hinge bushings.
