thanks for the comments! so far I really like the Boss. I could not be happier with the SmartHitch system is is by far the easiest plow I have ever had to hook up. We'll see how it does the rest of the season, but so far I am sold on Boss. Also, keep in mind, all this snow was south of me, so I have yet to actually plow any of my own accounts. Right now I am up to about 30 driveways and 2 small parking lots. I run a VERY tight route, so it should be perfect.
