New for the 2017-2018 plow season is the introduction of BOSS D-Force. Available as an option on new truck plow purchases, this option allows the user to maintain constant hydraulic down force to improve scraping performance while backdragging. D-Force will be available for all new straight-blade truck plows (excludes EXT, Trip-Edge, and Heavy-Duty plows) and will not be retrofittable to existing plows.

Spring Back to Action – Trip Spring Replacement

Plowing is tough on equipment; there is no way around it. Snow removal is done in some of the harshest environments and hidden objects often wreak havoc at the most unsuspecting times. There are a few items on BOSS plows that are considered normal wear items due to the rugged abuse they encounter. Trip springs are one of the most replaced items on a plow, whether it is a straight-blade or v-plow. V-plow users will notice that as trip springs wear, they have the tendency to sag in “scoop” mode as well as trip much easier while windrowing in straight mode. Straight-blade users will notice their plow tripping at a much earlier rate over objects the plow would normally not trip over. Proper spring tension will prolong the life of the springs. Fortunately, replacement of the trip springs is a quick task that requires only a few tools to accomplish.
