Are Boss plow wings easy to take on and off?

    May be a dumb question, but I added a few larger lots to my route this winter. I also have a number of residential driveways. I'm wondering, are the Boss wings easy to take on and off? (after initial install of course).The plow with wings on would be too wide for some driveways, but I'm thinking the wings would make a big time difference on the parking lots. How long do they take to put on and off? Would it make sense to have them in the truck and throw them on at the parking lots and then take them off for the driveways? Thanks

    They're heavy, but one person can easily do it. About a minute per side off and on.

    they do come off, one i had to modify slightly and have to rotate with the plow high up to get it off correctly. The other i drilled the stainless bolts that hold on the lock pin for each wing and have pins though them, they always used to pop off bumping a curb or anything, don't need that in the middle of a foot of snow all the time.
