    What's the main benefit to demon wings ($400+) over pro-wings ($200)?

    I ask because I just bought two sets of pro wings this year.

    In the first video it appeared that the wing was moving out from the blade under pressure of the snow, how long have these been tested for and in what other conditions?

    Im not bashing your product but a good over veiw video or pictures would be a good idea so we can see and understand how they work.

    Here are a few key benefits:

    - Demon Wings create more of a snow pusher configuration, similar to what you might see on a skidsteer, allowing you to hold larger amounts of snow and significantly minimizing trail off.

    - They are easier to install than pro wings, and do not require hols to be drilled in the mold board.

    - They are made of UHMW, an incredibly strong polyethylene that is lite weight, impact resistant, abrasion resistant, and corrosion resistant. They are also very resilient, allowing them to flex without cracking.

    - The wing rides all the way down to the pavement, unlike pro wings that uses a rubber piece at the bottom that is prone to flex backwards.

    - They are designed to articulate thus automatically adjusting to the pavement contour.

    - The wings trip over obstacles, such as curbs for instance, allowing you to push all the way up to the curb.

    - They don't restrict your snow plows tripping action, allowing it to tripp as it should. A significant safety feature.

    Hope the info helps.

    You are correct, they do move, flex under pressure. They are designed to articulate and automatically adjust up and down. Additionally they are very resilient allowing them to flex under excessive pressure or impact. In doing so much of the impact/pressure is absorbed by the wings instead of being transferred to the plow and vehicle, minimizing potential damage or harm. Another significant safety feature.

    They have been tested for 4 winters in real world conditions, plowing snow from 1 inch of accumulation up to 4+ feet of accumulation.

    Mike S,

    Good suggestion! Additional pictures/video will be in the making and will be upload on the website as soon as they are available. In the mean time, the installation manual available on the website may provide some insight. There are also several more videos you can view on YouTube. Thanks Mike!

    Great idea.

    Why during the install is a 1/2"-1" block of wood required to be placed under flat? Would this not leave a gap from surface to wing? I would think that would allow to leave a trail defeating the purpose of the wing???

    How do they wear? Is there an adjustment point for when the cutting edge wears down or has to be replaced?

    Have they been wear tested on gravel?
    My worry would be after mounting them there is a gap under them from the wood block during install and after the cutting edge is replaced the adjustment for that point would be off with no real way to adjust except re-drilling the holes in another spot.

    Any chance of a 75% discount for an area plower or future tester???

    Thanks for posting the video link.The video is of a prototype but I think it does a good job showing the how the wings work. Another video is being made that will be cleaner and hopefully more informative. It will be added to the website as soon as its ready. Again thanks!

    I came across it when i was surfing vids. I thought it was a pretty neat concept. Good enough for me to remember, ya know.. Glad to see its progressing. Good luck.

    Thank you for responding so quickly, have any that you have sold or tested snapped off the mounts in any of the four years of testing and marketing? I am not trying to bash you or the product, some of my guys can be idiots when it comes to running my equipment.:cry: Glad to hear you are working on a wear shoe for it, would that be a replaceable wear shoe, or would we have to purchase new sets when they wear? I realize you may not have all that worked out, I do like the concept, but the price hurts a little. Any chance we would be able to demo a set before buying?

    I think it's a great idea. Using a containment box for the first time last year, (a BX12), I can't believe how well it worked. This would definitely save some time over a conventional straight blade. As far as Prowings.....they kind of leave a lot to be desired, had them on a straight blade years and years ago and on a scale of 1-10 I would give them maybe a 3. As far as your product, I don't know what goes into making them but I would like to see how well they hold up after a year of hard plowing and the occasional impact at normal plowing speeds. If I ran straight blades I would seriously look into these. Thumbs Up
