    I like the video. Those sides sure help with the clean-up at the end of the driveway.

    Sweet pics! I am sure you get asked all the time but can I get some close up shots of your wings? How much do you guys sell those for?

    I built the wings on my plow.

    [​IMG]

    Welded up a nice mounting point on the end of the moldboard.

    then cut out the two wings and drilled holes and bolted 'em up. then welded in a cross support so it stays put.

    This is the back drag blade that I made from an old cutting edge. it has stops so that it stands straight up when when in reverse and lays down out of the way when pushing.

    yes, the speed limit drops right there from 65 to 55 so i was transitioning to around 60 which is a happy medium so i dont get a ticket lol
