Cables on the speed wings?

    I know the cables that operate the speed wings have been discussed before, but I wondered about just not fixing them and leaving them curved in? I just can't see spending 150.00 on each side to fix them. That's highway robbery!....I also understand they are sort of a safety device that if the spring would break they keep it from flying out, and I bought a piece of cable from the farm store and clamped it to the broken cable to keep it safe, they just won't operate the wing....

    Just my opinion, but a lot of money paid for a plow with features that are not needed. Pretty cheap to take a straight blade and add wings. That being said, if you only use scoop, it will work. Cables are cheep and easily replaced.

    Sounds like a good plow for you!.

    There's a fix to keep them from breaking.
