    I made my own, but only because built the blade itself from scratch, & there was no way I could make a OEM wing work. I've always been good with math, but the radius & compound angles involved in the wings still make my head spin! :dizzy:

    If I had to do it again, I would find the wings I wanted first & use them as a template for the plow.

    If you can deal with the simple old Buyers pro wings, they are worth the money vs. the time spent. You can usually find them for $200+, & I think I payed $75+ just for the 2 rubber cutting edges I needed, plus a lot of :realmad: & head scratching.

    that is a beauty you made.

    I really think you should post pictures of that in the picture forum. Its really nice.

    Perfect for the skid. You get the benefit of the plow being able to roll snow and angle but you get a nice large scoup when you need it. Very nice work.

    What do you think you have in that for total cost and time?

    I built some for a Boss 7.5 plow. Clicky! If money was no object, I'd buy OEM. These wings work great for a fraction of the cost.
