    I'd like to see them too. I did a search everywhere & can't get an online pic. I might just have to go to the dealer on Monday.

    is this the first year they have made them? if so, im wondering if they want to keep it somewhat low for now and let the first year of buyers be the "testers" before they go mass market them.

    I just looked at them on Fisher's site and although they're only for the Xtreme-V, I bet you could make them work on a regular X-blade. I wonder how much they cost.

    If you think about it, they have been testing them-- on western all last year. Notice all the new stuff is on the extreme vee, the most expensive plow they have.... good marketing strategy. I'm sure next year or the year after that they will start putting the lights on the HD's.

    Glad to see fisher pumping out some new stuff though. They have incredible support for those in need, and ask nicely:waving:

    Wow...

    I didn't realize they also came out with a backdrag blade. Now they have put on all the things we have been complaining about:
    1. None rusting components
    2. Better headlights
    3. Wings
    4. Backdrag blade
    5. Faster Hydraulics

    I think these would work better than Fishers Wings. These are more absorbant and leak protection!!! Jusdt think NO LAG!!!

    Looks solid, 3 points attach it, two side hole you put the rods attached the the wing in, then that main pin on the back

    I'd say solid. You wouldn't want it to give becaues then you would be dumping snow as it fills up.

    without any real picts can't say for sure, but the specs make it look like it fits up tight.

    They did design them only for the XV plows . They could be adapted to others but there is quite a bit to it. If you want to know how far off they will be. just take a measurement from the outboard rib on your plow; back to the inside corner of your 1st spring tower [the one closest to the end of the plow] and it that measurement is 6 5/8" your in! ................ Otherwise you will need to CUT the brace arms off, and reweld them so that corner will contact into the spring tower tophat correctly; and of course you need to fab up a tab to stick out off your tower to accept that 5/8" pin to hold it on there! How do I know all this............................. I just did it on for my 7.5XV! As they ONLY FIT the 8.5/9.5 size they changed the postion of the spring tower on the 7.5 for some unknown reason; and they dont sell enough of them[7.5 plows] to warrant making wings for them!! [that sure made me feel good almost $6000 later] The wing is rock solid; and the cutting edge is some sorta "polyrubber composition" that gives ........ I too;am mystified that they really dont advertise them at all ?????? So cant comment on that . I am hoping it isnt because there has been problems with them?? They are about 11" wide but because of the 35 degree angle they mount at; they actually add 6" to the width of the plow wing, you have added them to[or a foot if you put them both on your plow]. They weigh 54lbs EACH, so there is alot of heavy metal in them and they cant be compared to ProWings they are a compleatly different animal and alot ruggeder in design . I our case we had a 45" overall width from the center pin to the end of the wing and it now measures 51 1/2" or basically exactly the same as an 8.5 wing would be without a wing! Hope this helps you guys out and clears the air on how they look and hook up to a plow???

    They look well built. No advertising though? Anyone have more info on the backdrag edge?
