Looking for pics of a Ford F350, 450, or 550 dump truck with a front plow and a wing plow on the right passengers side. Looking to have someone paint a picture of one of them. Pretty hard to find pics of them. Wondering if anybody has seen what i'm talking about.

Thxs.

Dirt Digger- like the set-up. Does the wing plow work good? Considering buying a set-up like yours. need some tips/opinions on it.

yea i thought it worked great...made plowing roads very nice because a typical road could be done in 2 passes rather then 4

it was a little heavy on the front of the truck, but the 550 handled it well

they had (3) 550's with wings...the one i ran had the hydraulic lift on the wing, the other 2 had a cable lift that seemed to give them problems, so i would go hydraulic lift

but really its only good for long straight shots and roads; it was slow to raise and lower so if you had to do a lot of backing up, etc... when the wing wasn't needed it might take you more time then you think...when i would come to cul-de-sacs i would just raise the wing and tuck it away and do the whole thing with the straight blade...less chance for me to accidentally hit a car or mailbox

Cool :) Do you know if it was a Fairfield wing system. Did some more research and found a company up in NY that makes systems for 1 Ton trucks.

It's not complicated, 2 are for the plow, 2 are for the wing, 1 is for the dump body, and I'm not sure what the other one does.

PS - some info on the plow pics I posted...

http://www.brownhomesteadinc.com/snowplowsx.html

The guy does quality work. Those are Brown front plows, as well. A few people in Maine use them. Great quality built plows. Really heavy though... double the springs on the right side! I've seen quite a few of these and other brands in the Bath - Augusta area, usually used by contractors.

The button on the shifter looks the same as used for a 2 speed rear end.

2 are for the plow, middle was dump body, and 3 are for the wing...toe up/down, heel up/down, and wing in/out

also don't forget the switches haha...hydraulic on/off, plow light on/off, strobe light, rear work light, and side work light

i really loved that truck...too bad i had to graduate college and move away from school

Dirt digger,what's the switch on the shifter for?

it was the on/off for the under tailgate spreader then the auger and spinner speed controls were the 2 dials down by the driver seat

i like the jjag wing cause its set back so you can see out your window just my two cents. But i bet they all work good for shelfing and pushing back windrows

just my opinion but if ya want big plows,,,then buy big trucks to put them on


the frames and front ends on those 350's-550's arent built for that

WOW that is damn tough FORD to hold those plow. Wondered if Chevy IFS could hold that weigh.

Can you get more info on that truck I want see more pictures of that. Diesel?

I don't have much info on that truck but I've known they've been using it for years and years. It's owned by Chester Rice. Most of the small towns out in Maine there have only one or two big trucks, and they contract out all of the small roads to local contractors. Most of the contractors in that area have pickups and one-tons with wings. They leave the plows and wing plows on some of their trucks all summer (use 'em only for plowing). I can get some more photos of that truck, and a few others this summer. Yeah, I've seen a lot of Chevy trucks with wings, too. I actually saw a Ford F150 flat-bed with a Fisher plow and a custom wing one time near Bath, Maine. I know of a nice '79 Chevy K20 in Bremen, Maine with a wing, which I've been interested in buying for some time, he only uses the truck for small storms, and a lot of times he uses it without the wing. He's not interested in selling it, but I love asking him about it. It's plow and wing is also built by Wayne Brown.

I actually communicated with the Brown family this winter. Wayne had just passed according to his widow but his son was working the farm and still willing to build plows and wings setups.

They have a website.

That looks like a pretty nice set up for 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks.

The only problem I see is that once you hit something with it, that could be a pain in the butt, without a trip mechanism.

The old Everest ACPL plow systems for one-tons. Also, notice the benching wing mount for the big trucks... it was the old over the cab system.

Another view of that Birco wing on the Chevy K3500.

I talked to the owner at the time and the set-up was around $4,600.00 with the front post on a standard Fisher mount. And about $5,300.00 for a wing with the front post attached to the Minute Mounts, due to it needing extra re-enforcement.I actually found the company (who also did landscaping and construction (including retaining walls on the cose) in Maine to be a bit shady... especially when the owner said the name of the company changed, he gave me the link to the new site, and the website didn't exhist. Haven't heard from the guy ever since.
