    You can just use the 2 outer bolts and cut off the rest

    So how much do these extenders run? Is is around $100 for two or each?

    I just posted the whole page on the Winter site and showed what I had. That page covers all smaller curb guards and plow guards, so the OP would have something to look at.

    And the Xtendor does go beyond the cutting edge. The description of the product says it protects the blade end and the cutting blade.

    O yes protect the Cutting edge end but it doesnt protect the curbs the wrap around is to help from digging into the curbs and protect the Moldboard and cutting edge

    np hope he finds what he looking for

    You should look at the Western curb guards before deciding. I just put one on each of my Pro Plus plows. The Western Pro Plus curb guard is massive and also has a big round end to also protect the curb as well. The flat orange one that doesn't wrap around would wear out in afew storms if you plow to the curb. It would also be hell on a cobblestone curb.

    Yea alot of the curbs where i plow are cobblstone and belgium blocks maybe I'll get the "curb guard" version of the extendors. The western ones just look chinsy compared to the extendors.

    One thing you might think about is getting wings for ur plow rubber on the wings will be softer on the cobbstone and belgium blocks

    I just bought the western curb gaurd for my MVP. p/n. 44403 it is way heavier duty than those from differnt companies, and the rounded ball will be kind to decorative curbs

    I have these on one of my 8611LP's They bend the edges in. I am replacing them with the Curb Runners. Much more stout and run the curbs better with the rounded edges.

    How do the Xtendors bend the edges in ? We have 5 sets on my plows & a 6th set on a subs, with no issues, can you post a pic or something ?
