    He are some close up pics of how they mount. And by the way if you have a boss you need these wings. First time out last night I shaved off prolly 20 minutes off a lot that usually takes 45. These things are awesome, no moving parts and its 11 feet wide.

    The one pic shows how you pull the pin and rotate the wing back to clear a set pin then remove the wing.

    I didnt last night. I have to keep the wings forward a little so they dont hit the ground. Its wide as the snowbacks creep in on the roads I might have too.

    what the chances of getting a picture with the wings on the plow and the plow in the scoop position? would like to see that. Maybe an overhead view?!?

    How many of those blocks did you use and how much does that that hold 25 tons?

    I used 26 blocks should hold about 18 yards stuffed. I live less than 1/2 mile from the sand pit where I buy the sand and I get the salt off my buddy so I just make it as I need it. I made just to always have some on hand and nmot have to wait for the yards to open.

    It appears that you cut your curb guards off, rather than notch out the inside bottom rubber edge, to order to get your wings to fit on the new-style cutting edges,... any pros/cons as to why you decided to do it that way? I'm gonna put the new style edges on my 9.2 too now for the first time,... so I'm not sure which way is the best action to take,... wish my plow still looked that nice,... :waving:

    I actually notched the curb guards and then cut a little bit of the rubber on the wings. I wanted to keep the guards for when I take the wings off (dont know if I even will but for the money of the edges id rather keep them). If you look close the ends of the rubber flaps actually are off the ground a bit but with snow pushing on them it scrapes even. I didnt want to cut the rubber to close to the mounting wholes. BTW I don't know how I ever plowed without these. :D

    Oh ya Alaska Boss, did you have to tighten your trip springs when you put your wings on, mine wants to trip down when you lift in scoop. It seems like my springs should be a little tighter, also I think I need to lower the drop speed.
