THROUGH IT ALL
WARNING
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.
WARNING
Always follow the vehicle manufacturers recommendations relating to snowplow installation. For
recommended vehicle models refer to the Boss Snowplow Application Chart and Selection Guide.
WARNING
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.
WARNING
Read this manual carefully before operating this snowplow.
WARNING
When transporting, Position plow so as not to block vision or plow headlights.
WARNING
DO NOT change blade position when traveling.
WARNING
DO NOT exceed 40 mph when transporting plow.
WARNING
DO NOT exceed 14 mph when plowing.
WARNING
Always lower blade when vehicle is not in use.
WARNING
Make sure plow is properly attached before moving vehicle.

A REVOLUTION AGAINST SNOW
Congratulations on purchasing the finest snowplow made. The 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.
The BOSS SNOWPLOW has been carefully designed and built for years of carefree
performance. With its simple attaching system, the BOSS can be attached or removed in
seconds. For safety, the BOSS includes cross-over 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 the 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.

Tips on Plowing Snow
•
Know the area you are plowing, hidden obstructions such as curbs, sidewalks, pipes, etc. can cause damage to
your plow or vehicle.
•
Do not let the snow accumulate; always plow with the storm.
•
Always wear your seatbelts when plowing snow.
•
Occasionally, the plow blade may be in a position where it cuts off airflow to the radiator. While this is a rare
occurrence, it can usually be corrected by raising or lowering the plow slightly.
•
Always lower the blade when parking your vehicle. This reduces the load on your vehicle’s springs and guards
against any potential mishap caused by a falling plow.
•
Always remember to plow at a safe speed. The faster you plow the harder you will hit hidden obstructions.
•
Do not get body parts between or under the plow and vehicle when servicing or operating the plow.
•
When transporting, position plow so as not to block vision or plow headlights.
•
Do not change blade positions while traveling.
•

Note: If your plow will not lower, Flow Control Valve
(30D) is completely closed. Refer to Step 8 to adjust
Flow Control Valve (30D).
FULL
Figure 37. Oil Full Level
G00000
Plow Position to Check Oil: The plow should be
attached to the truck, setting flat on the ground, with
the blade in the straight position.
Figure 36. External Fill – Backside View
6. With the blade in the straight position and the
plow lowered to the ground, check the fluid level.
Fluid should be visible in the external fill port. If
fluid is not visible, fill until visible. Your reservoir
should now be properly filled.
G10124
Step 1 of the following fill procedure is intended for a
new plow with an empty hydraulic system.
Initial Plow Position: Start with the plow un-attached
from the vehicle and the lift cylinder completely
collapsed. The light tower will be tilted forwarded.
Note: If your plow is equipped with SmartHitch 2™
you must hydraulically power the light tower down.
Do not manually pull the light tower down. Failure to
hydraulically power the light tower down will create an
air pocket in the hydraulic system. Oil will spill out of
your internal filler cap.
1. Remove HYD04810 Fill Cap (20F) from
HYD04809 Street Elbow (20G) and fill with Boss
High Performance Hydraulic Fluid. Continue to fill
Street Elbow (20G) until no more fluid will be
accepted. (Approx. 2 quarts.)
WARNING: When adjusting Flow Control Valve
(30D) make sure all appendages 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.
2. Attach the plow to the vehicle.
Note: If your plow is equipped with SmartHitch 2™
you must hydraulically power the light tower up. Do
not manually push the tower up. Failure to
hydraulically power the light tower up will create an air
pocket in the hydraulic system. Oil will spill out of
your internal filler cap.
7. Adjust Flow Control Valve (30D) 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.
3. Raise the plow.

3) Below are some points listed by the Society of
Automotive engineers (SAE) pertinent to
headlight aiming. These points can be found in
publication #SAEJ5991D.
Preparation for Headlight Aim or Inspection
Before checking beam aim, the inspector
shall:
Distance Between
Headlight Centers
• 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.
Figure 38. Headlight Aiming Procedure
G10153
5) The correct visual aim for Type 2 headlights is
with the top edge of the high intensity zone of the
lower beam below the horizontal centerline and
the left edge of the high intensity zone on the
vertical centerline. See diagram above.
