Boss Loader Box Plows & Back Hoe Box Plows – Segmented Trip Edge Design
Roads come in all sorts of conditions regardless of tarred or gravel. Cracks, manholes, drains, curbs, and frost heaves all cause hazards when plowing, if you don’t have the “right” equipment. Boss Snowplows are already engineered with trip systems to help with this. The same can be said for Back Hoe and Loader Box Plows manufactured by Boss.
The segmented trip-edge design plays a large part in the protection and overall efficiency of the Boss Box Plow line-up. Segmented trip edges not only help protect the plow but also allows for the snowplow to encounter multiple hidden obstacles at varying heights landscapes with a clean push across any road or lot. Segmented edges trip independently over various terrain while plowing allowing for the plow to maintain contact with the surface, making each push as productive and efficient as possible.
By allowing the trip-edge to function in segments, the force of an impact is greatly reduced. When an object or heave in the road encounters one section of the trip-edge, the force transfers into the trip springs and only trips that section of the edge. This design makes the Boss Box plow much more efficient. If an impact were to happen at the edge of a full-length trip edge (12-16’), the majority of the impact would transfer through the cutting edge as a torsional load and in turn, would force the whole edge to trip. More moving parts are never good and can inevitably cause more problems. When it comes down to quickly and efficiently clearing a wide open area, BOSS has your back.
