Features & Benefits
Sport Duty Plows
Updated 7/1/14
Standard Features
Benefits
Poly Blade
BOSS Poly blades are scratch and dent resistant with a slick surface designed to keep snow from sticking.
SmartHitch2 Attachment System
The BOSS Smarthitch2 Attachment system features a simple 3-step process for hooking up your plow to
your truck - flip, plug and click. Its designed to be easy to use even in the worst conditions and in low light.
SmartLight 2 Package
Designed to look good with today's truck front ends and to flood the plowing area with bright light.
SmartLight 2 with it's exclusive HIR (Halogen Infra Red) bulbs, state of the art optics and dual bulb burning
capability projects more light wider, farther and more consistently than competitive light packages. It is also
equipped with an advanced vise-like mounting grip so it always stays in alignment.
High-Performance Hydraulic
Package
BOSS Hydraulics are built for two things, speed and reliability. They are also easy to troubleshoot in the
very rare occaision that something goes wrong - with interchangeable parts for convenience. They are also
fully-enclosed to keep water, moisture and salt from getting into the hydraulics - for long-term reliability.
Chainless Hydraulic Cylinder
Lifting System
BOSS owners rave about the Direct-Lift Hydraulic Cylinder system. It looks cleaner on the front of the
vehicle, it has fewer moving parts than chain lift systems and also reduces the "bounce" that chained plows
can have while encountering bumps in the road.
SmartTouch2 Control
Easy to use (for right or left hand use) with removable handle providing several mounting options.
SmartTouch2 has fewer buttons than some competitor's controls, making their operation easier to learn.
This controller can be used with the new Next Generation Electrical system.
Pistol Grip Control
The new Pistol Grip Controller features a unique ergonomic design, with a thumb-controlled joystick and
trigger finger raise and lower button for ease-of-use even during the longest plowing events. One controller
can be used for vee and straight blade plow operation. Available for use on Next Generation Electrical
System only.
Next Generation Electrical
System
Eliminate the 13-pin plug with this robust new electrical system option - for quicker attachment and
improved reliability. Communication between the truck and plow is wireless, while the controller remains
tethered to the truck's power supply - eliminating battery issues while keeping the operator safe from
accidental control activation while outside the vehicle. Both the SmartTouch2 and Pistol Grip Controller can
be used with the NGE System.
Heavy-Duty Control Plug
Large diameter pins provide a more reliable truck-to-plow connection.
SmartShield Paint Finish
Our two-step primer and paint process creates a corrision resistant, sharp looking barrier for the life of the
plow - keeping your investment looking great for years!
Full-Blade Trip Design
The BOSS full-moldboard trip system is tried and true - giving trip capabilities to those plowers not requiring
a tripping cutting edge, protecting the plow wings from damage when encountering obstacles.
Warranty
Protects the customer against material defects for two full years.
Full Moldboard Trip
The BOSS full-moldboard trip system is tried and true - giving trip capabilities
to those plowers not requiring a tripping cutting edge, protecting the plow
wings from damage when encountering obstacles.
Blade Material Options
The Steel Power V BOSS is still the #1 selling multi-position plow on the
market for good reason. It delivers high value -- its BOSS tough, plows snow
with ease and is our most affordable v plow.
SmartHitch 2 Attachment System
SmartHitch 2 is designed to be easy to use, in even the worst weather
conditions.
SmartLight 2 Package
Designed to look good with today's truck front ends. SmartLight 2 with it's
exclusive HIR (Halogen Infra Red) bulbs, state of the art optics and dual
burning bulb capability projects more light wider, farther and more
consistently than all competitive light packages on the market today. It is also
equipped with an advanced vise-like mounting grip so it always stays in
alignment.
High Perfomance Cutting Edge
1/2" x 6" High Performance Cutting Edge with built-in curb guards and snow
catcher and is made with Hardox to ensure extended wear resistance
compared to typical cutting edges.
High-Performance Hydraulic Package
BOSS Hydraulics are built for two things, speed and reliability. They are also
easy to troubleshoot in the very rare occaision that something goes wrong with interchangeable parts for convenience. They are also fully-enclosed to
keep water, moisture and salt from getting into the hydraulics - for long-term
reliability.

High-Performance Hydraulic
Package
BOSS Hydraulics are built for two things, speed and reliability. They are also easy to troubleshoot in the very rare
occaision that something goes wrong - with interchangeable parts for convenience. They are also fully-enclosed to
keep water, moisture and salt from getting into the hydraulics - for long-term reliability.
Chainless Hydraulic Cylinder

BOSS owners rave about the Direct-Lift Hydraulic Cylinder system. It looks cleaner on the front of the vehicle, it has
fewer moving parts than chain lift systems and also reduces the "bounce" that chained plows can have while
encountering bumps in the road.
SmartTouch2 Control
Easy to use (for right or left hand use) with removable handle providing several mounting options. SmartTouch2 has
fewer buttons than some competitor's controls, making their operation easier to learn.

raise and lower button for ease-of-use even during the longest plowing events. One controller can be used for vee
and straight blade plow operation. Available for use on Next Generation Electrical System only.

System
Eliminate the 13-pin plug with this robust new electrical system option - for quicker attachment and improved
reliability. Communication between the truck and plow is wireless, while the controller remains tethered to the truck's
power supply - eliminating battery issues while keeping the operator safe from accidental control activation while
outside the vehicle. Both the SmartTouch2 and Pistol Grip Controller can be used with the NGE System.
SmartShield Paint Finish
Our two-step primer and paint process creates a corrision resistant, sharp looking barrier for the life of the plow keeping your investment looking great for years!
Full Blade Trip Design
The BOSS full-moldboard trip system is tried and true - giving trip capabilities to those plowers not requiring a tripping
cutting edge, protecting the plow wings from damage when encountering obstacles.

SmartHitch 2 Attachment System
The BOSS Smarthitch2 Attachment system features a simple 3-step process for
hooking up your plow to your truck - flip, plug and click. Its designed to be easy to use
even in the worst conditions and in low light.
SmartLight 2 Package
Designed to look good with today's truck front ends and to flood the plowing area with
bright light. SmartLight 2 with it's exclusive HIR (Halogen Infra Red) bulbs, state of the
art optics and dual bulb burning capability projects more light wider, farther and more
consistently than competitive light packages. It is also equipped with an advanced viselike mounting grip so it always stays in alignment.
Dual Shock Absobers
Stabilizes and cushions the trip system increasing component life for excellent durability.
High-Performance Hydraulic Package
BOSS Hydraulics are built for two things, speed and reliability. They are also easy to
troubleshoot in the very rare occaision that something goes wrong - with
interchangeable parts for convenience. They are also fully-enclosed to keep water,
moisture and salt from getting into the hydraulics - for long-term reliability.
Chainless Hydraulic Cylinder Lifting System
BOSS owners rave about the Direct-Lift Hydraulic Cylinder system. It looks cleaner on
the front of the vehicle, it has fewer moving parts than chain lift systems and also
reduces the "bounce" that chained plows can have while encountering bumps in the
road.
SmartTouch2 Control
Easy to use (for right or left hand use) with removable handle providing several
mounting options. SmartTouch2 has fewer buttons than some competitor's controls,
making their operation easier to learn.
The new Pistol Grip Controller features a unique ergonomic design, with a thumbcontrolled joystick and trigger finger raise and lower button for ease-of-use even during
the longest plowing events. One controller can be used for vee and straight blade plow
operation. Available for use on Next Generation Electrical System only.
Pistol Grip Control
Next Generation Electrical System
Eliminate the 13-pin plug with this robust new electrical system option - for quicker
attachment and improved reliability. Communication between the truck and plow is
wireless, while the controller remains tethered to the truck's power supply - eliminating
battery issues while keeping the operator safe from accidental control activation while
outside the vehicle. Both the SmartTouch2 and Pistol Grip Controller can be used with
the NGE System.
SmartShield Paint Finish
Our two-step primer and paint process creates a corrision resistant, sharp looking
barrier for the life of the plow - keeping your investment looking great for years!
Full Blade Trip Design
The BOSS full-moldboard trip system is tried and true - giving trip capabilities to those
plowers not requiring a tripping cutting edge, protecting the plow wings from damage
when encountering obstacles.
Plows Interchangeable
THE BOSS Heavy-duty truck plows (Multiposition and Straight-Blade) are
interchangeable. This means if you have a BOSS Heavy-Duty plow installed on your
truck (SmartHitch2 or RT3) you will be able to drive into and operate either BOSS
Straight-Blade or Power-V plow with it's respective control. (Excluding snowplows
designed for Light-Duty Trucks).
Two Year Limited Warranty
Protects the customer against material defects for two full years.

TGS300 Tailgate Spreaders
Standard Features
Updated 7/17/14
Spreading Material
This spreader is designed to spread dry, free-flowing material, (salt, de-icers, etc).
Hi-Torque Electric Motor
The motor is completely sealed and enclosed in a weather tight compartment to prevent
corrosion. The special 12 Volt Hi-Torque Motor has much less rpm loss "under load" than
other hi-torque motors resulting in a more consistent flow of material at all times.
Polyethylene Hopper
Low Profile Design for better visibility. Durable "Solid" Polyethylene Hopper Cover to keep
moisture out.
Internal Auger w/Cable Agitator
Advantages:
1. Consistent flow of material.
2. Internal Auger with chain link agitator to break-up material clogs.
3. Material stops flowing when the motor is shut-off.
Adjustable Feed Gate
Allows you to adjust the amont of material being dispensed.
Material Saver System
This unique system controls the flow of smaller de-icing material both when the spreader is
operating and when it is shut-off. This prevents material from leaking out saving money and
cleanup.
Polyurethane Spinner
12" Diameter Polyurethane Spinner has special shaped poly spinner flutes for a more
consistent material discharge pattern. Polyurethane is used not only for its non-corrosive
qualities but for its softer more flexible material which will withstand hard use.
Polyethylene Adjustable Material Deflector
Adjustable Polyethylene Deflector allows the operator to adjust the pattern of the material
discharge.
Variable Speed Control w/Blast Feature and
Overload Protection
The Variable Speed Control adjusts the motor speed to control the amount of material flow
and the distance the material is discharged (4-30 FT.). The "Blast" feature is used to apply
additional de-icing material when required and to clear hopper clogging when an obstruction
occurs. There is a built-in overload protection unit that will automatically shut the motor off
when the spreader is clogged and automatically reset the motor after a short delay.
Attach/Detach Systems
Quick Hitch System allows for easy mounting and dismounting of the TGS300 from the
vehicle.
Paint Finish
All metal parts have a baked-on powder coat paint finish using our Corrosion Resistant Zinc
Primer prior to adding the top coat to protect against rust and provide a high gloss shine.
Warranty
Protects customer against material defects for two full years.

Features
Benefits
Flared Bladed Wings (Power-V)
Rugged good looks and efficient snow rolling are the greatest benefits of our legendary flared-wing
design v plows.
Poly Blade (Straight)
BOSS Poly blades are scratch and dent resistant with a slick surface designed to keep snow from
sticking.
SmartHitch 2 Attachment System
(optional)
The BOSS Smarthitch2 Attachment system features a simple 3-step process for hooking up your plow
to your UTV - flip, plug and click. Its designed to be easy to use even in the worst conditions and in low
light.
High Perfomance Cutting Edge
1/2" x 6" High Performance Cutting Edge with built-in curb guards and snow catcher and is made with
Hardox to ensure extended wear resistance compared to typical cutting edges.
High-Performance Hydraulic Package
BOSS Hydraulics are built for two things, speed and reliability. They are also easy to troubleshoot in
the very rare occaision that something goes wrong - with interchangeable parts for convenience. They
are also fully-enclosed to keep water, moisture and salt from getting into the hydraulics - for long-term
reliability.
Chainless Hydraulic Cylinder Lifting
System
BOSS owners rave about the Direct-Lift Hydraulic Cylinder system. It looks cleaner on the front of the
vehicle, it has fewer moving parts than chain lift systems and also reduces the "bounce" that chained
plows can have while encountering bumps in the road.
SmartTouch2 Control
Easy to use (for right or left hand use) with removable handle providing several mounting options.
SmartTouch2 has fewer buttons than some competitor's controls, making their operation easier to
learn.
SmartShield Paint Finish
Our two-step primer and paint process creates a corrision resistant, sharp looking barrier for the life of
the plow - keeping your investment looking great for years!
Full Blade Trip Design
The BOSS full-moldboard trip system is tried and true - giving trip capabilities to those plowers not
requiring a tripping cutting edge, protecting the plow wings from damage when encountering obstacles.
Two Year Limited Warranty
Protects the customer against material defects for two full years.

Features
Benefits
Poly Blade (Straight)
The BOSS ATV/Mid-Sized UTV plow features a dent and corrosion resistant, super slick poly moldboard, reinforced with
heavy-duty mild steel. This is a contractor grade plow!
Quick Hitch Attachment System
Similar to our legendary SmartHitch2 attachment system on our pickup truck plows, this easy-to-use system allows the
vehicle operator to quickly mount and dismount the plow/hydraulic equipment in a matter of seconds.
High-Performance Hydraulic
Package
Plows feature quick and easy-to-use hydraulic lift and lower and power angle. All the hydraulics are enclosed and located
high off the ground to protect from impact. There are no winches, pulleys or handles necessary, unlike most of the
competitors in the ATV plow class!
SmartShield Paint Finish
Corrosion-Resistant Paint Finish protects against rust while providing a high gloss shine. Exclusive zinc primer for the most
advanced paint finish in the snowplow industry.
Full Blade Trip Design
Plow is a full-trip plow, meaning the entire blade will trip forward when encountering obstructions or sidewalk cracks.
Ground Clearance
Two Year Limited Warranty
Heavy Duty Construction
Handle Bar Controls (ATV)
SmartTouch2 Control (Mid-Sized
UTV)
The rugged, low-profile undercarriage maintains a minimal decrease in ground clearance. That means, when your plow is
not attached, your ATV or Mid-Sized UTV will remain trail compatible.
Protects the customer against material defects for two full years.
The plow is designed and build by a world-leading truck plow manufacturer. The plow is constructed of tough, mild steel
components for outstanding durability and impact resistance.
The BOSS ATV Plow features a two-toggle switch ATV controller mounted on the handlebars of the ATV. These switches
feature a long surface area making them easy to operate even with gloves on. All of the raising, lower, and angling are done
right from this handlebar controller - for the ultimate in ease-of-use and efficiency! No more getting on and off the ATV to
angle the plow.
Easy to use (for right or left hand use) with removable handle providing several mounting options. SmartTouch2 has fewer
buttons than some competitor's controls, making their operation easier to learn. Weather sealed for years of operation in
cold, wet conditions.
