Do Boss wings leave a snow trail?

    I have a couple 8' Boss poly straight blades and am interested in installing wings on at least one of the two. For anyone who has used wings on a Boss, do they leave a trail of snow between the wing cutting edge and the plow cutting edge? This is one of my biggest pet peaves. I hate having plowed a lot, then look back at it and see all of the small trails of snow that were left behind. Any input would be appreciated.

    They won't if they're installed correctly and the wing edges are carefully trimmed correctly.

    yep,.. not only do they not "leak" out any snow trails,... they really add to the forward reach that you have in stacking,... even when compared to a Blizzard,... :nod:

    It would be tough to find a single component that adds more benefit to a plow truck than a good set of wings,... unless it was a rear bumper like this,... and for me, since I'm plowing most of the time in the dark.... this bumper has been the single best thing I've added to my truck,... :salute:

    Here is my thoughts on Boss wings on a Boss V.......you either have the plow and wings or you need them. Simple as that. I used the mounting kit when I installed mine. Should have welded them on! Couldn't do i without them anymore.:D

    Smooth mill file only for this job. The bas-tard cut is mulch too rough
