    Has anybody used a 810 with danger wings? How much time do they save? What are the drawbacks? I'm a little concerned that they might put to much strain on the wing having another 1' sticking out.

    I made a set of my own design (similar to Jerre's Danger wings) for my 810 and my 8611 last year. I use them only on large lots, not driveways. Really does speed things up for us for transporting snow across long pushes. They will put a lot more stress on the plow and truck. Need to be carefull near curbs,etc.

    Slade....I'm confused as to what answer your looking for. You have posted this thread like 3 times now as recent as a month ago and you've heard the Pro's and Con's, I don't think much has changed in 30 days...

    I leave my wings on unless I'm driving all the way across town then I remove 1. The other truck that I have with a Blizzard and wings stays at the site all winter. Weight isnt something that i was real concerned about Those plows are built like a tank. Now you go and slam your wing into a curb ...your going to bust it. Like I have told you before....You will save a TON of time!!!! Here are some pics of mine.

    If I end up making my own, I am considering making them straight extenions of the wings instead of being angled forward. Is this a bad idea?

    The idea of the angle forward is that it allows you to "scoop" and push more snow kind of like plowing in a v position rather then having the blade straight.

    I understand the idea of having them angled forward on a straight blade to give the scoop effect. What I am thinking is on the 810 you could add a 1' straight extension to each side. Then when windrowing the side you are windrowing towards could be straight and not cupped forward. And when wanting to scoop , put the blade in scoop position and with the extensions you would be doubling your carrying capacity.
