Are the wings really worth it?

    I have a 7'6 Boss Trip edge and I thought I might look into installing wings on it. How much do the wings usually run for?

    Oh about a block or so before they start to get tired, then they just walk!.



    No Really, you can expect to pay anywhere from 150.00 to 300.00 plus for a good set if you only do resi's, wings are not that adventitious, however if you do any ammount of commercial lots, they are worth your trucks weight in gold for a straight blade!!!!. Expect your productivity to go up by at least 25%

    Hope this Helps :drinkup:

    I do 2 commercial lots so the answer would probably be yes right?

    If the initial expense can be made up with a time savings in your route then yes, I would say get them!

    Wings rule, after now running them I don't want to plow without wings
    I do about 90% commercial and they save alot of screwing around in large lots.
    For small drives it wouldn't be such a big deal but for the lots I do they rule. :D

    Plow went from 8' to 9'10" :)

    Hey BOSSMAN, try the BOSS wings. They are expensive at about $750/pair, but you will absolutely love their durability and design. We have tried all kinds of different wings on the market and this year tried a pair of BOSS wings, and now switched the rest of our blades to BOSS wings.
