A REVOLUTION AGAINST SNOW
Congratulations on purchasing the finest snowplow made. BOSS sets the standard for quality, reliability,
craftsmanship, and performance. Our products are designed, built, and proven in Michigan’s rugged Upper
Peninsula, where winter is a way of life. And we back it all up with exceptional customer service and
satisfaction. We’re not just setting the standard. We’re leading the way.
BOSS SNOWPLOW has been carefully designed and built for years of carefree performance. With its
simple attaching system, BOSS can be attached or removed in seconds. For safety, BOSS includes
hydraulic pressure relief to prevent damage by overstress. Where A-Frame and moldboard fatigue are a
common problem on conventional plows, a BOSS PLOW will stand up to severe plowing conditions.
To keep your BOSS PLOW in top shape, take a few minutes to study this manual. It will show you how to
use and service BOSS, familiarize you with all of its parts, and give you helpful tips on plowing snow.
If you have further questions, your local BOSS PLOW DEALER is the person to talk to. They know your
plow well and want your complete satisfaction.

Serious injury or death can result if you do not follow these instructions and procedures which are
outlined further within your owner’s manual

Read this manual carefully before operating this snowplow.

Always follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations relating to snowplow installation.
For recommended vehicle models refer to the BOSS online Plow Selector tool at
www.bossplow.com.

Vehicles equipped with air bags are designed such that the air bags will be activated in a
frontal collision equivalent to hitting a solid barrier (such as a wall) at approximately 14 mph or
more, or, roughly speaking, a frontal perpendicular collision with a parked car or truck of
similar size at approximately 28 mph or more. Careless or high speed driving while plowing
snow, which results in vehicle decelerations equivalent to or greater than the air bag
deployment threshold described above, would deploy the air bag.

Many newer trucks are equipped with air bags. DO NOT under any circumstances disable or
remove or relocate any sensors or other components related to the operation of the air bags.

When transporting, position plow so as not to block vision or plow headlights.
6

DO NOT change blade position when traveling.

DO NOT exceed 40 mph when transporting plow.

DO NOT exceed 14 mph when plowing.

Always lower blade when vehicle is not in use.

Make sure plow is properly attached before moving vehicle.

To comply with Federal Regulations and to assure a safe vehicle, the Front Gross Axle Weight
Rating (FGAWR), Rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (RGAWR), and the Gross Vehicle Weight
Rating (GAWR) must not be exceeded at any time.

Due to the variety of equipment that can be installed on this vehicle, it is necessary to verify
that the Front Gross Axle Weight Rating (FGAWR), Rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (RGAWR),
and the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GAWR) are not exceeded at any time. This may require
weighing the vehicle and adding ballast as necessary. It may also limit payload capacity of the
vehicle. It is the operator’s responsibility to verify that these ratings are not exceeded.

Power-V Maintenance
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, please use it properly and observe the following
maintenance precautions.
Inspect the following on a regular basis:
1. All fasteners, pins, retainers, nuts and bolts for tightness. See Recommended Bolt Torque located in this manual.
2. All hydraulic lines and connections for wear and leakage.
3. Hydraulic cylinders for leakage, rods for rust or pitting.
4. Cutting edge wear.
5. Plow shoe wear (If installed).
6. Hydraulic oil level (CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL). Fill using BOSS Snowplow High Performance
Hydraulic Fluid or equivalent. See Hydraulic Power Unit Fill Procedure located in this manual.
7. Control Harness and Power/Ground Cable Connectors for corrosion. Apply dielectric grease at least
once a month during the plow season.
8. Apply grease to coupler spring pins.
21
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.
22
Taking the Power-V Plow out of Storage
1. Before you attach your plow, check for cracked welds and check all fasteners for tightness. See
Recommended Bolt Torque located in this manual.
2. Go over all the hydraulic hoses looking for cracks and leaks.
3. Change your snowplow hydraulic fluid using BOSS Snowplow High Performance Hydraulic Fluid. See
Hydraulic Power Unit Fill Procedure located in this manual.
4. Check your cutting edge for excessive wear.
5. Check your plow shoes for wear (If installed).
6. Tighten your trip return springs and your blade return springs.
7. Grease the coupler spring pins.
8. Grease the vertical hinge pin bushings.
9. Attach the plow to the truck and extend both blades into the scoop-position.
10. Check hydraulic cylinders for leaks and check rods for corrosion or pitting.
11. Touch-up any rust spots or chipped paint.
12. Apply dielectric grease to the electrical plugs (lights, valve assembly, pump, pump solenoid, and battery).
13. Align your plow lights once your snowplow is attached and in the raised position. See Headlight Aiming
Procedure located in this manual.
23
Power-V Snowplowing Preparations
1. Before operating or servicing your BOSS Snowplow, you should become thoroughly familiar with the
owner’s manual.
2. You should carry the following safety equipment for emergencies: a fire extinguisher, tool kit, tow strap,
flashlight, flares, first aid kit, fuses for your vehicle, jumper cables, an ice scraper, lock deicer, extra
washer fluid, a shovel, and a bag of sand or salt. Also, make sure you have warm clothes that include
insulated boots, insulated underwear, a warm jacket, hat, gloves, and sunglasses.
Note: In case of an emergency, it is always a good idea to carry a cellular phone or two-way radio with
you when plowing.
3. You should also carry a snowplow emergency parts kit that includes extra hydraulic fluid, hydraulic
hoses, a pump solenoid, extra cutting-edge bolts, and a trip spring.
4. You should check your vehicle’s tire pressure; engine belts for cracks and tightness; hoses for leaks;
and vehicle fluid levels including the engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, battery, radiator coolant,
and windshield washer fluid. Examine the battery terminals for corrosion, and make sure the
connections are tight. Make sure the vehicle windshield wipers and defrosters are in good shape and
working properly. Check the vehicle headlights, brake lights, and turn signals to be sure they are in
good working order, and make sure your strobe light is working if you have one. Also, look under the
vehicle for obvious signs of leaking fluid.
Note: You should never run out of fuel, so make sure your fuel tank is full before going out to plow.
24
Power-V Snowplowing Preparations
5. If you do not have a strobe light or backup lights, you should consider adding them to your vehicle to
increase your own visibility, as well as making yourself more visible to others while plowing.
6. To comply with the federal requirements for front and rear weight distribution – and for good traction
while plowing – make sure your vehicle has the proper amount of ballast. Ballast should be placed
rearward of the back axle towards the tailgate of the bed. And it should be properly secured in place.
7. Check your snowplow to make sure all bolts are tight. Look for cracked welds and hydraulic fluid leaks.
Make sure the plow lights and turn signals are aligned properly and are in good working order.
8. Check your snowplow cutting edge. An over-worn cutting edge can result in costly repairs to the blade
later.
25
Power-V Basic Plowing Practices

When transporting a snowplow, place the plow in the V position. This will reduce the chance of
catching a curb or a snow bank that could pull your vehicle into it.

Never operate a plow while transporting it to or from a job site. It’s a good idea to keep the plow control
turned off in order to prevent accidental operation.

When transporting a plow, position the blade so as not to block the plow headlights or your vision.

Do not exceed 40 mph when transporting a plow. Do not exceed 14 mph when plowing.

When transporting a plow or while plowing, check the temperature gauge often. Overheating the
engine can be costly. If the vehicle overheats, stop and correct the problem. If overheating occurs while
transporting, stop and adjust the blade position to allow more airflow to the radiator.

Before it snows, walk around the area you will be plowing to check for obstacles that will become
hidden when snow is on the ground. Look for things such as bumper stops and speed bumps, curbs,
sidewalk edges, shrubs, water drains, fire hydrants, fences, and pipes sticking up from the ground. To
prevent damage to the area being plowed, as well as to your snowplow and truck, mark any
obstructions that will be hard to see when there’s snow on the ground.

Always wear a seat belt when plowing, and never plow with your head out the window. Hidden
obstacles could cause the vehicle to stop suddenly, resulting in personal injury.
26
Power-V Basic Plowing Practices

When moving in reverse don’t rely only on the vehicle mirrors. Turn around and look where you’re
going.

When plowing on dirt or gravel, lower the plow shoes. This will raise the blade so you don’t scrape the
surface away. When plowing on asphalt or concrete, raise or remove the plow shoes so that you
scrape as close to the surface as possible.

When you’re finished plowing, lower the blade to the ground, and turn the plow control off for safety.
This will also take stress off the hydraulic components.
Protecting Your Transmission

One of the most common vehicle problems encountered while plowing is damage to the transmission.
Overheating the transmission fluid, as well as improper use, can contribute to the problem.

Most vehicle manufacturers do not recommend plowing in overdrive. Consult your vehicle owner’s
manual to find out if plowing in overdrive is recommended – and, if so, when and how.

Plan your plowing pattern so that you are driving forward as much as possible.

Come to a complete stop before shifting from forward to reverse.

Wait until the transmission engages before accelerating.
27
Power-V Basic Plowing Practices

Accelerate slowly, allowing the wheels to grip the road surface for better traction. Avoid spinning the
tires.

To start a pass, start the vehicle in motion. Then drop the blade.

Whenever possible, back into a cleared area.

If you have a manual transmission, avoid riding the clutch while plowing.

After plowing, let the vehicle idle for ten minutes or more to allow the transmission cooler some time to
cool the transmission fluid.

If you are plowing, change your transmission fluid before and during the season. A good rule of thumb
is to pull your transmission dipstick periodically and smell the fluid. If the fluid has a burnt smell, you
should change the fluid as soon as possible.

To monitor the heat in your transmission, you can install an inline transmission gauge. Once the
temperature reaches 250 degrees, you should let the vehicle idle until the transmission fluid cools to a
lower temperature.
28
Power-V Basic Plowing Practices
Things Not To Do

Never pile snow on someone else’s property.

Never pile snow on a street or on sidewalks.

Never pile snow on top of any structure.

Never pile snow by mailboxes, dumpsters, water drains, catch basins, electrical boxes, or fire hydrants.

Never push snow across a road without first checking the local regulations. In many areas it is illegal to
push snow across a road.
Plowing Parking Lots

Make sure you know where the customer wants you to pile the snow.

Use extra caution when plowing next to curbs.

If a significant amount of snow is expected, plow with the storm rather than letting snow accumulate.

Keep water drains and catch basins clear at all times.
29
Power-V Basic Plowing Practices

Do not stack snow by the road so as not to block the visibility of vehicles coming or leaving the parking
lot.

Use caution when plowing next to parked cars – as the snow can push you into the car.

When plowing snow that is next to a building, push snow away from the building.

If you are responsible for sidewalks, they should be shoveled first before you start plowing so that the
snow can be plowed away.

To start a pass, start the vehicle in motion. Then drop the blade.

As you come to the end of a pass, lift off from the accelerator while starting to use the brake. At the
same time, start to raise the blade to help stack the snow – and to make it easier on your electrical
system.

Plow areas in front of buildings and overhead doors first. With the blade raised and in the StraightPosition, drive up to the building; drop the blade; and pull the snow away from the building. Then turn
your vehicle around, back into the cleared area and push the snow to the outer edges of the lot.

Push the banks back far enough to accommodate future snowfalls.

After back dragging snow away from building, it’s time to start plowing the lot. Start by making a pass
down the center of the lot, and then push snow in windrows to the outer edges. If there has been a
30
Power-V Basic Plowing Practices
significant amount of snowfall, push as much bulk off the lot as possible. Then go over it again. In large
lots it may be best to break your plowing down into smaller areas.

Do not pile snow in the middle of the lot. It will be difficult to remove later.

Do not pile snow near handicapped parking areas.

Plow in straight lines whenever possible, and push snow to the outer edges of the lot. Keep the wind
direction in mind – and pile snow downwind to minimize drifting later.

Plow snow during low-traffic hours, and always be cautious of cars and people in the lot.

Once the majority of snow is removed from the lot, it’s time to do the cleanup work. Start by plowing
next to curbs. Be sure to square off corners where possible, and don’t leave trails of snow behind.
Plowing Driveways

Make sure you know where your customer wants you to pile the snow.

Drive up to the garage; drop the blade; then back up – pulling the snow approximately two truck
lengths back. Turn the vehicle around and back into the cleaned area. With the blade angled to the
center of the driveway, push the snow to the end of the driveway. Finish by pushing the snow into the
corners at the end of the driveway. Be careful to not leave snow on the road or on sidewalks.
31
Power-V Basic Plowing Practices
Note

Plowing snow across a road is illegal in many areas, although some rural areas will allow it. Check your
local regulations first. If it is allowed, push the snow far enough back to allow for upcoming snowfalls –
being sure to not leave snow on the road.

The more you operate your BOSS Snowplow, the more you’ll appreciate just how easy it is to use.
Whether opening up roads or plowing driveways, parking lots or apartment building complexes, your
BOSS Snowplow is designed to save you time while making your job easier. We hope these general
guidelines will help you to get started.

And remember – there’s no substitute for doing a quality job. And for doing so safely.
32
Power-V Plowing Tips
Every BOSS Snowplow is designed and built with one goal in mind – to make your job easier. And each
one has unique features designed specifically to save time and effort, while at the same time ensuring it will
stand up to nature’s worst. But we don’t just make better snowplows; we have lots of ideas on how to plow
snow better. So browse through this section, and see how BOSS can help you be the best you can be.
The BOSS Power-V Snowplow is a multi-position plow that let’s you quickly and easily choose from a
variety of blade positions including a Scoop-, Straight-, Angle-, or V-Position – and anything in between.
POWER-V POSITION
In this position the blades are retracted towards the truck. This position is normally used for making the first
pass. It’s ideal for plowing a lane through deep snow or punching through snowdrifts and hard-packed
banks or windrows left by city and county plows.
SCOOP POSITION
This position is used for carrying or controlling the snow – with the blades pushed out to form an inverted-V
shape. It’s most useful for clearing parking lots or other large areas where snow must be pushed straight
ahead – and not to the side. It’s also useful for cleanup work at the end of the job. You’ll find the ScoopPosition to be the most useful for many plowing situations. And it’s also a great time-saver.
ANGLE POSITION
In this position the blades are positioned to either the left or right side of the vehicle. Use this position for
windrowing or for widening the first pass.
33
Power-V Plowing Tips
STRAIGHT POSITION
This position is normally used for back dragging – with the blades positioned directly in front of the vehicle.
For example: to remove snow from the edge of a building, raise the blade and drive up to the building.
Then lower the blade and back up – pulling snow away from the building.
With a little experience, you’ll develop your own methods for plowing and learn exactly which plow position
to use for each pass.
DEEP SNOW
In deep snow raise the plow several inches off the ground to shear off the top layer. With a Power-V Plow,
use the V-position for the first pass. Then change to the Scoop- or Angle-Position to widen things out. You
should push just enough snow with each pass to get the job done efficiently without overloading your
equipment. A good rule of thumb is to use a full blade width for two inches of snow or less, three quarters
of the blade for four inches of snow and half a blade for six inches of snow or more.
WET SNOW
The best advice is this: once you start, finish the job. Wet snow left in windrows overnight can freeze and
turn into tank traps by morning.

Straight Blade Maintenance
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, please use it properly and observe the following
maintenance precautions.
Inspect the following on a regular basis:
1. All fasteners, pins, retainers, nuts and bolts for tightness. See Recommended Bolt Torque located in this manual.
2. All hydraulic lines and connections for wear and leakage.
3. Hydraulic cylinders for leakage, rods for rust or pitting.
4. Cutting edge wear.
5. Plow shoe wear.
6. Hydraulic oil level (CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL). Fill using BOSS Snowplow High Performance
Hydraulic Fluid or equivalent. See Hydraulic Power Unit Fluid Fill Procedure located in this manual.
7. Control Harness and Power/Ground Cable Connectors for corrosion. Apply dielectric grease at least
once a month during the plow season.
8. Apply grease to coupler spring pins.
56
Putting the Straight Blade 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. Drive the snowplow to a storage site. Follow the normal procedure for removing the plow.
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 springs.
7. Grease the coupler spring pins.
8. Grease any exposed chrome on the angling cylinders to protect from corrosion.
57
Taking the Straight Blade Plow out of Storage
1. Before you attach your plow check for cracked welds and check all fasteners for tightness. See
Recommended Bolt Torque located in this manual.
2. Check all hydraulic hoses for cracks and leaks.
3. Change your snowplow hydraulic fluid using BOSS Snowplow High Performance Hydraulic Fluid. See
Hydraulic Power Unit Fluid Fill Procedure located in this manual.
4. Check your cutting edge for excessive wear.
5. Check your plow shoes for wear.
6. Tighten your trip return springs.
7. Put a coat of grease on the coupler spring pins.
8. Attach the plow to the truck and extend the blade from one side to the other to check the hydraulic
cylinder rods for leaks, corrosion, or pitting.
9. Touch-up rust spots or chipped paint on the plow’s metal parts.
10. Apply dielectric grease to the electrical plugs (lights, valve assembly, pump, pump solenoid, and
battery).
11. Align your plow lights once your snowplow is attached to the truck and it’s in the raised position. See
Headlight Aiming Procedure located in this manual..
58
Straight Blade Snowplowing Preparations
1. Before operating or servicing your BOSS Snowplow, you should become thoroughly familiar with the
owner’s manual.
2. You should carry the following safety equipment for emergencies: a fire extinguisher, tool kit, tow strap,
flashlight, flares, first aid kit, fuses for your vehicle, jumper cables, an ice scraper, lock deicer, extra
washer fluid, a shovel, and a bag of sand or salt. Also, make sure you have warm clothes that include
insulated boots, insulated underwear, a warm jacket, hat, gloves, and sunglasses.
Note: In case of an emergency, it is always a good idea to carry a cellular phone or two-way radio with
you when plowing.
3. You should also carry a snowplow emergency parts kit that includes extra hydraulic fluid, hydraulic
hoses, a pump solenoid, extra cutting-edge bolts, and a trip spring.
4. You should check your vehicle’s tire pressure; engine belts for cracks and tightness; hoses for leaks;
and vehicle fluid levels including the engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, battery, radiator coolant,
and windshield washer fluid. Examine the battery terminals for corrosion, and make sure the
connections are tight. Make sure the vehicle windshield wipers and defrosters are in good shape and
working properly. Check the vehicle headlights, brake lights, and turn signals to be sure they are in
good working order, and make sure your strobe light is working if you have one. Also, look under the
vehicle for obvious signs of leaking fluid.
Note: You should never run out of fuel, so make sure your fuel tank is full before going out to plow.
59
Straight Blade Snowplowing Preparations
5. If you do not have a strobe light or backup lights, you should consider adding them to your vehicle to
increase your own visibility, as well as making yourself more visible to others while plowing.
6. To comply with the federal requirements for front and rear weight distribution – and for good traction
while plowing – make sure your vehicle has the proper amount of ballast. Ballast should be placed
rearward of the back axle towards the tailgate of the bed. And it should be properly secured in place.
7. Check your snowplow to make sure all bolts are tight. Look for cracked welds and hydraulic fluid leaks.
Make sure the plow lights and turn signals are aligned properly and are in good working order.
8. Check your snowplow cutting edge. An over-worn cutting edge can result in costly repairs to the blade
later.
60
Straight Blade Basic Plowing Practices

When transporting a straight snowplow, place the plow in the straight position. This will reduce the
chance of catching a curb or a snow bank that could pull your vehicle into it.

Never operate a plow while transporting it to or from a job site. It’s a good idea to keep the plow control
turned off in order to prevent accidental operation.

When transporting a plow, position the blade so as not to block the plow headlights or your vision.

Do not exceed 40 mph when transporting a plow. Do not exceed 14 mph when plowing.

When transporting a plow or while plowing, check the temperature gauge often. Overheating the
engine can be costly. If the vehicle overheats, stop and correct the problem. If overheating occurs while
transporting, stop and adjust the blade position to allow more airflow to the radiator.

Before it snows, walk around the area you will be plowing to check for obstacles that will become
hidden when snow is on the ground. Look for things such as bumper stops and speed bumps, curbs,
sidewalk edges, shrubs, water drains, fire hydrants, fences, and pipes sticking up from the ground. To
prevent damage to the area being plowed, as well as to your snowplow and truck, mark any
obstructions that will be hard to see when there’s snow on the ground.

Always wear a seat belt when plowing, and never plow with your head out the window. Hidden
obstacles could cause the vehicle to stop suddenly, resulting in personal injury.

When moving in reverse don’t rely only on the vehicle mirrors. Turn around and look where you’re
going.
61
Straight Blade Basic Plowing Practices

When plowing on dirt or gravel, lower the plow shoes. This will raise the blade so you don’t scrape the
surface away. When plowing on asphalt or concrete, raise or remove the plow shoes so that you
scrape as close to the surface as possible.

When you’re finished plowing, lower the blade to the ground, and turn the plow control off for safety.
This will also take stress off the hydraulic components.
Protecting Your Transmission

One of the most common vehicle problems encountered while plowing is damage to the transmission.
Overheating the transmission fluid, as well as improper use, can contribute to the problem.

Most vehicle manufacturers do not recommend plowing in overdrive. Consult your vehicle owner’s
manual to find out if plowing in overdrive is recommended – and, if so, when and how.

Plan your plowing pattern so that you are drive forward as much as possible.

Come to a complete stop before shifting from forward to reverse.

Wait until the transmission engages before accelerating.

Accelerate slowly, allowing the wheels to grip the road surface for better traction. Avoid spinning the
tires.
62
Straight Blade Basic Plowing Practices

To start a pass, start the vehicle in motion. Then drop the blade.

Whenever possible, back into a cleared area.

If you have a manual transmission, avoid riding the clutch while plowing.

After plowing, let the vehicle idle for ten minutes or more to allow the transmission cooler some time to
cool the transmission fluid.

If you are plowing, change your transmission fluid before and during the season. A good rule of thumb
is to pull your transmission dipstick periodically and smell the fluid. If the fluid has a burnt smell, you
should change the fluid as soon as possible.

To monitor the heat in your transmission, you can install an inline transmission gauge. Once the
temperature reaches 250 degrees, you should let the vehicle idle until the transmission fluid cools to a
lower temperature.
Things Not To Do

Never pile snow on someone else’s property.

Never pile snow on a street or on sidewalks.

Never pile snow on top of any structure.
63
Straight Blade Basic Plowing Practices

Never pile snow by mailboxes, dumpsters, water drains, catch basins, electrical boxes, or fire hydrants.

Never push snow across a road without first checking the local regulations. In many areas it is illegal to
push snow across a road.
Plowing Parking Lots

Make sure you know where the customer wants you to pile the snow.

Use extra caution when plowing next to curbs.

If a significant amount of snow is expected, plow with the storm rather than letting snow accumulate.

Keep water drains and catch basins clear at all times.

Do not stack snow by the road so as not to block the visibility of vehicles coming or leaving the parking
lot.

Use caution when plowing next to parked cars – as the snow can push you into the car.

When plowing snow that is next to a building, push snow away from the building.

If you are responsible for sidewalks, they should be shoveled first before you start plowing so that the
snow can be plowed away.
64
Straight Blade Basic Plowing Practices

To start a pass, start the vehicle in motion. Then drop the blade.

As you come to the end of a pass, lift off from the accelerator while starting to use the brake. At the
same time, start to raise the blade to help stack the snow – and to make it easier on your electrical
system.

Plow areas in front of buildings and overhead doors first. With the blade raised and in the StraightPosition, drive up to the building; drop the blade; and pull the snow away from the building. Then turn
your vehicle around, back into the cleared area and push the snow to the outer edges of the lot.

Push the banks back far enough to accommodate future snowfalls.

After back dragging snow away from building, it’s time to start plowing the lot. Start by making a pass
down the center of the lot, and then push snow in windrows to the outer edges. If there has been a
significant amount of snowfall, push as much bulk off the lot as possible. Then go over it again. In large
lots it may be best to break your plowing down into smaller areas.

Do not pile snow in the middle of the lot. It will be difficult to remove later.

Do not pile snow near handicapped parking areas.

Plow in straight lines whenever possible, and push snow to the outer edges of the lot. Keep the wind
direction in mind – and pile snow downwind to minimize drifting later.

Plow snow during low-traffic hours, and always be cautious of cars and people in the lot.
65
Straight Blade Basic Plowing Practices

Once the majority of snow is removed from the lot, it’s time to do the cleanup work. Start by plowing
next to curbs. Be sure to square off corners where possible, and don’t leave trails of snow behind.
Plowing Driveways

Make sure you know where your customer wants you to pile the snow.

Drive up to the garage; drop the blade; then back up – pulling the snow approximately two truck
lengths back. Turn the vehicle around and back into the cleaned area. With the blade angled to the
center of the driveway, push the snow to the end of the driveway. Finish by pushing the snow into the
corners at the end of the driveway. Be careful to not leave snow on the road or on sidewalks.
Note

Plowing snow across a road is illegal in many areas, although some rural areas will allow it. Check your
local regulations first. If it is allowed, push the snow far enough back to allow for upcoming snowfalls –
being sure to not leave snow on the road.

The more you operate your BOSS Snowplow, the more you’ll appreciate just how easy it is to use.
Whether opening up roads or plowing driveways, parking lots or apartment building complexes, your
BOSS Snowplow is designed to save you time while making your job easier. We hope these general
guidelines will help you to get started.

And remember – there’s no substitute for doing a quality job. And for doing so safely.

Straight Blade Plowing Tips
Every BOSS Snowplow is designed and built with one goal in mind – to make your job easier. And each
one has unique features designed specifically to save time and effort, while at the same time ensuring it will
stand up to nature’s worst. But we don’t just make better snowplows; we have lots of ideas on how to plow
snow better. So browse through this section, and see how BOSS can help you be the best you can be.
BOSS Straight-Blades are the proven choice for professionals and homeowners alike. Built with an
optimized blade curl that means snow rolls cleanly off the plow.
ANGLE-POSITION
In this position the blade is positioned to either the left or right side of the vehicle. Use this position for
windrowing or for widening the first pass.
HOW TO WINDROW
With the blade angled to the left or right side of the vehicle, make consecutive passes – each time throwing
the snow forward and to the side. This technique is useful to clear large areas such as parking lots.
STRAIGHT-POSITION
This position is normally used for back dragging – with the blade positioned directly in front of the vehicle.
For example: to remove snow from the edge of a building, raise the blade and drive up to the building.
Then lower the blade and back up – pulling snow away from the building.
With a little experience, you’ll develop your own methods for plowing and learn exactly which plow position
to use for each pass.
67
Straight Blade Plowing Tips
HOW TO BACK DRAG
To remove snow from the edge of a building, raise the blade and drive forward to the building. Lower the
blade, and then back up while pulling the snow away from the building. You should back drag only two
truck lengths before turning around. You can then back into the cleared area and push snow forward. You
plow will be more effective when pushing snow than then back dragging over long distances.
DEEP SNOW
In deep snow raise the plow several inches off the ground to shear off the top layer. You should push just
enough snow with each pass to get the job done efficiently without overloading your equipment. A good
rule of thumb is to use a full blade width for two inches of snow or less, three quarters of the blade for four
inches of snow and half a blade for six inches of snow more.
WET SNOW
The best advice is this: once you start, finish the job. Wet snow left in windrows overnight can freeze and
turn into tank traps by morning.

certify that installation conforms to
applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
Standards.



1. Place the vehicle on a level surface 25 feet in
front of a matte-white screen, such as a
garage door. The screen should be
perpendicular to both the ground and the
vehicle.

2. The vehicle should be equipped for normal
operation. The snowplow blade should be in
place and in the raised position.
3. Next are some points listed by the Society of
Automotive engineers (SAE) pertinent to
headlight aiming. These points can be found
in publication #SAEJ5991D.

Remove ice or mud from under fenders.
See that no tire is noticeably deflated.
Check vehicle springs for sag or broken leaves.
See that there is no load in the vehicle other
than the driver.
Check functioning of any “level-ride” controls.
Clean lenses and aiming pads.
Check for bulb burnout, broken mechanical
aiming pads, and proper beam switching.
Stabilize suspension by rocking vehicle
sideways.

Hydraulic Power Unit Fill Procedure
WARNING!
When adjusting Flow Control Valve (31C) make
sure all body parts are clear of the plow blade
and observers are standing a safe distance away
from the plow blade. The plow may drop if your
controller is in the FLOAT position. Make sure
your controller is in the OFF position before
attempting to adjust the plow. Failure to follow
this warning could result in bodily harm.
Note: Flow Control Valve (31C) is not available
on Green colored Hydraulic Manifolds used on
Sport Duty snowplows.
8. Adjust Flow Control Valve (31C) to obtain the
speed desired for lowering the plow by
loosening the jam nut, then adjusting the set
screw. Counter-clockwise adjustment will
increase the speed the plow descends.
Retighten the jam nut when the desired
speed is obtained.
