    Sidewing is a good tool

    I had the same question and did some research. I got the dvd of the product in the mail, its pretty cool.
    Its main purpose is to help clear Long private drives or streets, and also make large lots go quicker by adding 4' of blade off to the right side of the truck.
    It is independently controlled and one of the neatest things is that you can use it to push back piles. Just lift it off the ground say 6" but have it extended and voila, you just made more room.
    Also you keep your tires on the road and not in a ditch, I had a 1/2 mile road along a canal last year, can you say white-knuckle. It sure would have been nice to stay on the Forest side and let the wing hang off the canal side.
    Down-side is price, the dealer near me has it at about $4000. I'm waiting to see it in person, he should have it out this week I hope.
    My dilemma is because of the cost, I think I am going to get a salter this year, Half the cost and guaranteed to pay for itself. And then next year take on more commercial accounts knowing I can get them done with the Sidewing.
