    I understand that...I was usually in a motor grader with a 12' angle blade mounted in front
    and with the 12' belly blade...I sometimes started landscaping early...LOL

    That's pretty wild, but it doesn't look like it clears that wide of a path.

    I don't know if it can be adjusted out o give you a wider pass...but in some cases..that extra 2 foot does come in handy

    It will add about 4' of clearing to your front plow.

    What's better about the JJAG over Sidewing?

    Did you see the spillage left over from the front plow to the side plow? There was a line of coke left on some of the video.

    Looks nice but I wouldn't put that on anything smaller then a 1 ton dump; it looks like if you hit something even minor the whole body of the truck will get torn up. Also needs to be a little bigger.

    I agree the last video is cool, but as someone else mentioned the trail left from ft. plow to rear plow is kinda messy, also it looks as though they have HID lights in the trucks.

    give me a brake....

    I know its the nature of the beast that people must make their opinions known on a subject they know very little about, but all your doing is making yourself look like an :jester: . 10 minutes of searching on this subject and you'll realize that the side wings whomever the manufacture, work very well, actually balance the truck better with one on than without, make your 8' plow into a 12', etc and blah blah blah.

    Yes they cost a fair amount,(last I checked it was around 5k +/-) but with the right accounts will pay for themselves very quickly- the key is to have the right kind of accounts. Don't buy one for driveways, but doing private road work or large commercial and you will be raking in the payup .

    Operator error!
    Heel & toe (usually in that order) of wing must be adjusted to level cutting edge to pavement each time the wing is deployed. A good operator can do this by feel once he is familiar with the equipment. Poor adjustment - unlevel or too much down pressure results in uneven or rounded cutting edge wear. Can't tell you how many times I had to correct new crewmen on this issue.

    Not sure I care for the rear mount position. We always ran both highway and benching wings from front or mid mount.
