    Just (literally) picked up my 8'2 poly V after getting my wings installed. The scraper of the wing dosent touch the ground!! I asked the installer and he said that it is normal. Pretty much defeats the purpose of the wings! Im hoping that they were installed incorrectly. Any insight would be really appreciated.

    Loosen the bolts that go through the wing wear edge drop your plow. Then tighten them up, very tight. While loose make sure they touch the ground

    Yes, they are adjustable, too low and they will chatter. I like them just slightly higher than the edge so they can start to wear together.

    Ok I'll try that thanks. Does it matter that I have the curb guard cutting edge on the plow? All the images I have seen of the wings installed have the regular cutting edge?

    They should hit the ground. I cut my curb guards off as I don't take the wings off much. This will give a better fit.

    there is an adjustment wedge at the pivot to deal with that. Read the manuals, they explain how to adjust it.

    I'd find a dealer that understood the product. Doesn't matter how well built and designed you plow is if the nimrod that installs it doesn't know the products features or how to properly set up an installation, it's a worthless chunk of steel.

    Exactly why I wanted to see pics...to see how the dealer f'd up the install.
