    I saw some mounting brackets on a parts website but do they sell wings for an STP-7.5?
    Blade is about 10 years old. :D

    Meyers never had there own wings until recently for the plows. So you will have to buy pro wings and install them on your self. They work great.

    I think I saw a thread on here where someone made them work on a poly plow

    Well then I should contact Pro Wings and see if there is some way. I guess the plastic part isn't strong enough to take it or the frame isn't. Maybe its possible to re-enforce it in some way.

    Now that IS much better. I had wondered about the twisting motion of those wings on those metal up rights. They would twist too much. But putting in those cross braces is the way to go.

    Thanks a ton!

    We have used wings on that CP-8 for over two seasons now and it has held up extrmely well. If fact with twisted up one wing last winter and no damge whatsoever to the plow itself. All the damage was confined to the wing, which was what we wanted. Wings are cheap, the plow itself isn't. LOL

    You must have used the same steel cross member method that jdknight75 shows? Or something like that to not have messed up the plow.
    Ya I wondered what would happen if a wing had got caught on something. Nice to know the plow was ok. Really thought it would hurt the plow.
    I'm gonna do this for sure.
    Thanks dude.
