Anyone ever build/buy Wings for a 9' Heavyweight?

    Was looking for a general idea of how to do it. Or if its a bad idea.

    I plow a large trucking terminal and would love to push more snow.

    Maybe someone out there makes generic wings for the HeavyWeight.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Any aftermarket guys that sell wings for a Heavyweight

    I was just bumping this after seeing a lot of after market stuff out there.
    Just wondering if wings on a 9' plow is a bad idea.

    I have wings on my 8.5 meyer poly commercial plow and it is close to 1000# now. you will be fine. get some pro wings by buyer. they will work well.

    frogblow; did you find wings for your heavyweight? I'm thinking about doing the same thing....

    It's been 2 years, thought I would bump this.....

    Since I haven't put wings on yet. I do like the idea of Pro Wings, would there be much modification with putting them on a Heavyweight?

    Just wondering.

    I figured I could also put flat pieces on the side to make more of a straight pushing plow.

    I have wings on 9 ft plows.

    Will never plow without them again.

    And the forward angle makes a huge difference.

    I was looking around the interwebs and everything i find states "not to be used on a heavyweight 9' or 10'. I have a 9'. Since the Heavyweight has a flush or flat backside to it, I believe I would have to do some welding to make ribs and such for the backside.

    Mr. Goel what exactly did you get for your 9', or did you make them yourselves?

    This is what I mean by saying the Heavyweight has nothing to bolt too, its a pretty blank smooth backside.

    I don't think this will post picture, I probably have to use a picture website.

    No bolt needed at that point, just a hole that the center pin of the wing sticks thru. Pin then goes thru the center pin of the wing. Even if the pin gets lost, the pressure of the snow holds it in place.

    I will try to get a few pictures later today.

    Thanks for all the help, Goel. I am definitely going to order the Buyers Pro.

    I seen pictures around and found installation pics, I see that it should work well.
