    Can anyone tell me what is the largest size wing plow that can be installed on a chevy c6500? It will have a 10' angle plow on the front. I plow for the highway dept.

    Thanks

    It's all going to depend on front axle capacity. If it is less than 12,000# GAWR than a front patrol wing is probably out of the question. I would look into a Henderson Mid-mount wing if I were you - http://www.henderson-mfg.com/plowsw.html

    Is that a 30,000 GVW? You might be able to put a 10 foot on, but you'd need to beef up the front springs and have quiet a bit of weight in the back.

    Like LON said, check your front axle capacity. We don't put a wing on anything under 12,000 lbs.
