    Hey guys, anyone using the buyers pro Wings on a Fisher? I have not seen any pictures or comments from Fisher users. Are they worth it? I am trying to control/stop trailoff snow on long driveways and small lots. Trying to cut down on the pushes cleaning up the trailoff with my little 6'-9". Have seen them on beay for around $200.00 One thing I seem to see often is they dont hold up well?

    Thanks

    I use them on my 9' blade and love them.

    The biggest thing for me was to stop trailoff on my clean side when plowing light snows at full angle and pushing to one side.

    Also doing drive-lanes during busy hours in parking lots and the such. Makes a difference in how much snow you can catch before trail off begins.

    Don't try to use them like a blade extension. They are to control snow better. You start trying to hook snow out of frozen piles and you will bend them up.

    that last comment from Basher opened an eye, because after the town plows I use the corners/edges of the plow to carve into the frozen mound. If they cant hack that then I guess they are not going to work out for me. Was really hoping these would. I know they come off easy but wants to be jerking around with on and off. I have to hustle, I fly from drive to drive.

    I agree. They certainly aren't for breaking down glaciers. Mine lasted through last years non-stop snowfall... And toward the end, I was anything but easy on them. I think they're pretty strong for what they are.

    we ran them on our toyota's with 6'9'" ld's (the heavy old-style ones). and they were good to a point in terms of durability. personally I think the cost versus savings is huge. on a 6'9" blade you'll be pushing 8.5' and you'll see incredible increases in productivity. mounting them is a bit of a PITA on the small blades, they're designed to go on the big plows. it is doable though. pushing with a jeep will be easier on them than a full size truck. if you're careful with them you'll be ok, otherwise buy a big hammer and anticipate un-bending them.

    Is there enough of an angle on them to help with the trailoff? A buddy of mine (on plowsite) bought Meyers wings and put them on his western, he said they have a 45 degree angle, the pro wings are only 22 degrees?

    I think they do a very good job at keeping trails down.
    I'm totally content with the Pro-Wings and have no intention on changing them.
