How To Prepare Your Snowplow For Storage

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.

Great overall video. Touches on what many people forget to do. Of course we have to make sure that they wash them first to get the salt and mud off of them. Interesting that you chose a new plow to show the dielectric lubrication and the greasing steps for the connections and the pivot points and cylinders. This unprotected way is how we see far to many year or two old plows come in for service as the installing dealer did not dielectric or grease / lube the new plow before sending it to the customer.

“Story time” might not be famous as “Yellow Submarine” but still this is another highly influential film that reflected the explosion of creativity in Animation. Terry Gillian is a genius and his works are amazing.

Say thanks to the salesman if you're unable to agree with a price for that car, and simply tell him you will look from another car dealership. He will then request you to give him a couple of minutes before a person leave, so he is able to confer using the sales manager to get the cost you would like.
