BOSS Expands 2016 Fleet With New Heavy-Duty Municipal Plow and VBX 6500 Spreader
Iron Mountain, Mich. (July 11, 2016) — Designed for medium-duty trucks, the new BOSS Snowplow 9' Heavy-Duty Straight-Blade plow features a reinforced moldboard and enhanced blade curl to power through deep, wet snow during the toughest of winter storms. The municipal-grade 9' Heavy-Duty plow allows you to punch through hard-packed banks with power and performance.

“Increasing blade rigidity is the backbone to the creation of the BOSS Heavy-Duty Plow,” said Mark Klossner, marketing vice president for BOSS Snowplow. “This new plow is designed for municipalities and comes with six trip springs and two shock absorbers, making it completely durable, long-lasting and strong to take Mother Nature’s toughest hits.”

The 9' Heavy-Duty Straight-Blade comes standard with the BOSS SmartLight™ 3 LED with Ice Shield Technology™ built for the snowplow professional, and is also equipped with the BOSS heavy duty undercarriage and SmartHitch® 2 Attachment System for quick and easy attachment.

VBX 6500 Spreader
BOSS Snowplow is also expanding its VBX spreader product line this year with the addition of the VBX 6500, which performs just as powerfully and reliably as the others in a mid-size package. The new VBX 6500 features models with both auger and pintle feeds, powerful electric motors, standard worklights, easy-to-use controls and the flexibility to spread a variety of deicing materials. 

“The VBX 6500 is a natural extension of our spreader product line,” said Mark Klossner, marketing vice president for BOSS Snowplow. “Ice control is key for professionals, and we’re continuing to develop spreaders and products that deliver advanced features and functionalities.”

With a 1.5-cubic-yard capacity, the BOSS VBX 6500 is built with a stainless steel drive train and weatherproof components for reduced maintenance and longer life. The LCD Display Controller is backlit and features dual motor control for quick adjustments on the fly. A rear-mounted dump switch allows operators to quickly dispose of the remaining materials at the end of the day. All of this is backed by the quality, durability and service BOSS has built its reputation on.
