    Depends on how much snowfall you expect per event....That would dictate whether the V is worth the extra money...

    With the standard plow, you may have to deal with the snow in 6-8" intervals during a storm...1/2 mile isn't as bad as it seems with one of these.

    One other question, do you have enough area next to the driveway to push the snow, or will that end up closing in on you (banks on both sides etc)?

    I haven't seen the Boss plow mounted but we had a customer insist that we mount another make then the kubota blade. I was impressed over how well it did with a 78" blade even with larger snowfalls that actually was the same height as the blade.

    The blade that he liked did have a major flaw, the subframe only had an inch and a half of ground clearance!!!

    He didn't like having to spend the money for a lift kit but it did give him enough clearance to do his gravel driveway.

    Do check for the ground clearance!

    The 1100's plow much better than one would think..I can attest to that. I have the Curtis OEM plow and I'm happy with it's performance...Ground clearance under the subframe is my only complaint.

    I do not know how expensive the kubota plow would be, but the Boss plow is very expensive. I have the JD heavy duty plow for my Gator, but would have the Boss plow if I could justify the additional $1500 in cost/installation. Boss gets my vote as the nicer plow; you may have to determine whether the cost merits the difference. The UTV will handle either fine.

    my only complaint with curtis plow on my rtv is the electric up and down.One hyd. joy stick would be great and much easier to operate.Also in light fluffy snow a higher blade would be nice also.
