    What is the difference between these two besides just the blades.
    I would like to have a 9'2" instead of my 8'2". Can I just order the new 9'2"
    blades and put them on my 8'2" or are the hydralics, motor, settings, or etc different.

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    Seriously though, they are identical, except for the length of the moldboards. I switched out 7'6" moldboards for 8'2" moldboards a few years ago. Everything else is the same.

    Why not just add wings?

    GB- adding slip on wings would be much much less expensive option and give you more productivity overall then going wider with new 9.2 wings (which yes you can do). A cost difference of about $1000.

    I will be adding the slip on wings to the new 9'2" moldboards also.

    You can go right ahead and do both with no problem. As long as your checkbook will cooperate. :D
