    Don't forget you have to have a pro+ plow. I have them and love them.

    what's your opinion?

    My Western Dealer told me today that the wings would be no good for my plow where mine is a full trip. the wings are only good for a trip edge, and would be waste of money for me, cause they won't last on a full-trip plow. :cry: What's your opinion?

    Don't forget that pro-wings and Westerns wing for the Pro+ plow are very different. Westerns only give you 12" of width verses the 22" of the pro, but you get more containment with the Western wing. If I had a straight blade I would only have wings.

    pro wings

    $160 sounds about right. Use google and search Central Parts Warehouse you can find them on there. They fit just about anyplow. They have been around for a long time. Western just came out with there own in the last few years. If you do a search on this web site under pro wings there is lots of info.

    Pro +

    Last year we bought a 7 1/2' Pro Plus and had 1 set 64410 wings installed. At first I was alittle reluctant because of the cost (495.95) I was amazed at the amount of snow that didnt trail off--I own two other Western v-plows and with the wings on the 7 1/2' I actually can do the same area in a lot less time due to the fact I dont have to clean up areas.

    Just finished emailing a reperestentative from the Central Parts Warehouse website. I must say, they're really helpful when it comes to answering all my questions. And they're prices are unbelieveable compared to the manufacturer's price. Hopefully soon, I'll have my "wings" too!

    :D Ha Ha, get it 'wings' like what pilots get in school. Me make funny!:D

    wings

    They are pretty easy to install. They cut plow time way down. I was able to pick up a few new lots this year because of all the time I saved last year. When you get to use them tell me what you think:drinkup:

    remember Por wings are not the same as Western's wings. The guys at CPW are great, but I found prowings for my little plow cheaper on another site.

    The wings from cpw DO make the plow into a "scoop" though right???? I'm not just buying wings that'll make the plow wider? that's not what I want, I want to make the plow into a big ole scoop!

    wings

    if you want a scoop I think you might want turkey wings. Do a search on this site I know there were some pictures

    The Pro-wings do pitch forward from the plow, allowing it to carry more snow. They also do make it wider, but that isn't all they do.

    Turkey wings, as far as I can tell, come straight forward from the plow (90 degree angle). I dont think they make the plow any wider.
