    I have long runs L shaped that have to be pushed into a tiny opening , It's a funky lot and maybe a funkeyer way of doing it, it works for me though anyone ever tried this

    I wouldn't do it I seen guys dent each other trucks up trying it or rip mirrors off

    I have done it with a tractor and truck before

    But haven't done it since I bought a V plow

    Go get a v plow or put some Boss wings or your plow. The cost of 2 dented trucks is not worth it. And look how slow you have to go to get this done. Time is money.

    There is a set of wings on it, there's a good 2 plus feet On it which makes an awesome 15 foot v. I agree that I looks weird, but it pushes you away from the pile. We just have to take it a little slower and pay attention but imo it works great, no dents as of the last few years

    We've done it with loader and a skid, I wouldn't try it with a truck........

    I remember a member posting pics of that once. He was doing a self storage place. The amount of snow two trucks can carry is impressive, but risky.

    We do that all the time with two straight blades to cleanup crumbs. As long as no one makes any sudden moves it works great.

    It's amazing how much snow two big dump trucks loaded can push together makes for quick clean up of windrows

    As long as the truck on the left drives dead straight and a steady speed.......and the truck on the right does the corrections in course and speed to keep the v going, looks like it would work great.

    Right side truck has the view of the meeting point...

    Bet if both blades had a 2' extension on the outside, none in the middle, then both blades were left straight....the resulting 20' box would move way more snow and a lot easier / faster.

    I used to do it all the time before I spent the money and bought V plows. Now with the loaders, I don't ever have more than 1 truck on a lot at a time. It was part of the growing of my business. Knock on wood, I never had so much as a dent in any truck, or any ripped off mirrors.

    I forgot to mention the truck on the left is my wife driving it. We have been doing this for 2 years , I give the directions and its works well or at least I think it does

    Pretty neat idea to be able to clean up a much larger area than normal, although it would take the fun out of it for me, as I'd be stressed out that my wife was going to jamb her plow into my truck....;)

    Your pro wings and Boss wings are 2 different animals

    If I have carry snow long ways to a spot I never windrow I run my V plows in scoop 98% of time its faster

    When you windrow you are rolling the same snow over and over
    scooping you are scooping new snow every pass.

    But if works for you that's kool

    I remember that;)

    Not something I would recommend, but have done it just to see. It seems "a little" easier/safer, if the truck w/driver side towards the center of the V, is the trailing plow. In the end if I "need" to do that to complete a job efficiently, then I'm not using the right equip...jmo....still pretty cool to watch being done though.
