The forecast calls for snow! You've been waiting for this all year. Finally, your city is in the path of the storm.
Here are a few tips to help ensure that your equipment is ready for battle:
Check Your Vehicle
Whether plowing with a BOSS pickup truck plow, a BOSS UTV plow or a BOSS Box Plow, knowing that your vehicle is in running order will ensure that you are successful this winter:
Check your snow plow vehicle’s tire pressure.
Check all fluid levels including engine oil, brake fluid, transmission fluid, radiator coolant and windshield washer fluid.
Check oil pressure, your engine will work hard this winter – oil is its lifeblood!
Make sure the battery is working properly and that terminals are tightly connected with no corrosion.
Check the condition of your wipers – operating your BOSS Snowplow
with poorly operating windshield wipers is asking for problems. While
you’re at it, make sure you defrosting system is working on snowplow
truck as well!
Check the vehicle’s headlights, brake lights and turn signals to
ensure they are all in working order – visibility is crucial both to you
and drivers around you.
Never venture out without an adequate fuel supply.
Check Your BOSS PlowYou’ve checked your snowplow vehicle, now make sure your BOSS Snowplow is ready to go as well:
Make sure that all bolts on your snowplow are tight and well fastened.
Look for cracked welds and hydraulic fluid leaks.
Make sure the plow lights and turn signals are aligned properly and are in good working order.
Carry a few extras – keep a BOSS Snowplow Emergency Parts Kit handy that includes extra hydraulic fluid, hydraulic hoses, a pump solenoid, extra cutting-edge bolts and a trip spring.
If you notice that you are in need of service or parts, call or visit your nearest BOSS Snowplow Dealer or visit ShopBOSS. If you need help locating your nearest dealer, simply visit bossplow.com and either use the Dealer locator, or feel free to use the Chat button to chat on-line with a BOSS Snowplow factory representative.
Remember, if you need us, we’ll be there to get you back up and running. Many BOSS Snowplow dealers feature 24-hour service during big snow events. At the BOSS Snowplow Headquarters you can call us with questions, talk to our Technical Service department, send us an email or chat online with us. If for some reason we can’t speak with you right away, leave a message, and we’ll get back to you quickly!

Getting the most from your work van is easy when you choose the right van accessories to help you become more organized and efficient. Good truck and van accessories will always pay for themselves by allowing you to maximize your cargo space and productivity, while also keeping your most expensive equipment protected.
With so many van accessories to choose from, the best way to find which ones work for you is to take some time to consider your needs. All tradesmen work differently, and every trade has their own basic tools. Make a list of all the equipment that you use daily. Consider ladders, large and small parts, and inventory. With a list in hand, you’ll be able to visualize your needs and determine which of the van accessories below will be the most beneficial.
Van Accessories for Organization:
Paper holders, bottle holders and reel holders are designed to increase organization by giving you a specific spot to store your equipment. Instead of rolling loose on the floor, your bottles and reels can be fastened down and within easy reach from the door. As for your paperwork and files, keep them all together in a paper holder where they won’t get ripped or crumpled.
Partskeepers are a great way to keep your smallest parts together and secured. With small, dividable bins, they offer a great storage system to take with you onto the job site. Sturdy yet lightweight, you can never have too many Partskeepers for your tools.
Storage bins are available in several sizes, and can be accessorized with bin dividers. These are ideal for holding items and inventory so you can find what you need quickly and easily. Like the Partskeepers, if you have many items to carry with you on the job, then these bins are the ideal solution.
Hooks come in several different styles and can be used to organize tools and equipment near the van doors to be most effective. Hard hat holders can keep frequently used hats within easy reach and safely stowed while on the road.
Van Accessories for Driver Comfort & Safety:
Lighting keeps the cargo space bright, making it easy to find your tools, no matter what time of day or night. It also eliminates any chance of receiving cuts and bruises when searching through your tools in the dark.
Rear Steps are extremely beneficial for tradesmen with high roof vans. Climbing in and out several times a day can put quite a strain on your legs and back, especially when carrying heavy items at the same time. The steps also provide a rugged grip in the winter, so there is no fear of slipping when getting in or out.
Grab Handles, like the rear steps, are designed to provide you with easier access into your van. Whether installed in a high roof of low roof work van, it is always useful to have something to hold onto. It can also be used to tie down additional cargo for safe transportation.
Flettner vents help protect you from any gasses/vapors or smells that may build up in the cargo area of your vehicle. It helps reduce heat build-up and allows moisture to escape should any materials or tools be stored while they are still wet. It is a simple way to stay healthy while working.

Van Accessories for Vehicle Security:
Lockable Doors and Drawers provide two advantages. They can better protect your inventory and tools by keeping them in one place on the rougher roads. Also, they can deter thieves and protect valuable tools while you’re on the job and your work van is left unattended.
Wire grills for your windows can also protect you against theft as well as prevent damage to the van during loading or unloading. They are an easy install and such a simple product that just might help save you a lot of money in the future.
Seat Covers help keep your work van seats clean and in good condition. Instead of getting dirt and grease on your seats and staining them permanently, use custom-fit covers that can be easily removed and washed. Come time to sell your vehicle, you will be grateful you kept them in such good condition.
