    i wounder if some one could make a plow "side shift" like a fork lift.
    seems like you could trim edges better with out going in to the ditch.

    just think a 8' plow could shift left or right an other foot away from the truck.

    what do you guys think?

    I had the same idea the other day as I was widening a driveway. That would be awesome.

    i think it would save alot of people from going in the ditch from trying to widen out.
    i do a couple real long roads with significant drop offs on each side of the road.
    one is down hill all the way. one trip i have to widen the road with my passengers side. i don't like the idea of it cuz i can't see.

    i can't justify the purchase for a wing. it's not versatile enough.

    i see fisher was making them. then your plow just becomes a big scoop. if you have alot of snow to move or heavy snow. thats not much good for trimming out the sides of roads or long drive ways

    if it was a side shift where the whole plow shifts over 1"- 1,1/2
