Mid- Michigan Snow Equipment is one of the oldest BOSS Distributors and recently celebrated their 30 year anniversary as a successful business.  Byron and his brother Ted Russell began their business as lawn and snow contractors that later became a snow removal distributing business following a snowmobiling trip. While Ted Russell was on the trip, he met a BOSS Sales Representative. He quickly became intrigued by the BOSS Multi-position Plow concept and shared the enthusiasm with his brother.  Before long, they ordered their first order of six BOSS Snowplows in late March.  As snow contractors at the time, they purchased two plows for themselves and tried them out on their own trucks.  Impressed by the design and quality of the plows, they soon became a BOSS Distributor.

BOSS has developed an additional controller option called the Pistol Grip.The pistol grip is a combination of the handheld and joystick controller with raise and lower buttons, and a thumb controlled joystick for the center.  It’s important to find the controller that fits your needs and preferences.
