Boss Snowplow has introduced its first expandable plow, the Boss EXT, which expands from 8 to 10 feet (and back, of course) at the touch of a controller.
The company says the expanded width, combined with angled, forward-pitched wings, makes the plow capable of moving larger amounts of snow and doing so faster.
In a news release on the product introduction, Boss Snowplow says its engineers “spent years designing and perfecting the EXT” for snow removal contractors. Like all Boss plows, the EXT features a chainless lift system and fully enclosed hydraulics system.
The plow is 30 inches high and equipped with nine vertical ribs, enabling the EXT to move a higher volume of snow than comparable plows, according to Boss.
Unlike expandable plows whose scooping wings are in place at a maximum of nearly 9 feet, the Boss EXT forward-pitched scooping wings remain in place while the plow is fully expanded to 10 feet, the company says, providing maximum snow-carrying capacity on every pass.
The EXT will use the current Boss RT3 undercarriage and Boss SmartHitch2 attachment system, providing operators the ability to swap between snowplows in their Boss fleet.
The EXT is equipped with the Boss SL3 Lighting System, which the company says is the first headlight system specifically designed for snowplowing.
