    Possibly thinking about selling my 860 Speedwing. Few seasons old, no rust, perfect working order. Would include JUST THE BLADE AND LIGHTBAR!!!!!

    Post if interested.

    Pic is the actual speedwing. No truck or spreader INCLUDED

    Did you not like the speedwing? I have an 810 and have considered the speedwing as well. What kind of money? Im guessing my mount would work but would need new wiring and control.

    What to trade your speedwing for a 810? I dont like the idea of my employees using a 810, too many buttons for them lol

    I like the speedwing. It is a great concept, exspecially to teach new drivers but the blade is really going to be a back up this season and the problem is ..... If I lose a lp a speedwing is not the back up blade I want to put on an F550 for the day.

    The mount, wiring, and controller are exactly the same. The truck in the picture is actually set up for an 810 and it ran the speedwing all last season.

    Its a preDD. I believe it is an 05, in great condition. A little rust like them all but nothing anywhere close to major. Last November i took the entire thing apart, wings and all, to get rid of the rust and repaint. New cutting edges with carbide tips same time. Still have 75% life. Everything on it works perfect.

    This are pics after i painted it. I can take new ones if your really interested once i pull it out of the shop. Stored inside all year.

    Are you interested in making a trade straight up or would you want to talk numbers?

    I guess it depends on the condition of yours. I paid $2500 last nov for mine. Spend about 15 hrs going through it fixing it up and about $700 in parts. So idk, what are you wanting out of your speedwing?

    I paid $3000 for my speedwing last season and it has some wear on it, such as the cutting edges and the stickers. No rust at all. I can take some pictures tomorrow so you can see it. I would be right around the same price.

    I believe he still needs to run a blade. Just not the 810 anymore.
