    Does anyone run with an expanding rear plow,and where would I get one?

    I saw one on a Ford Super Duty in one of my neighborhoods that I plow.

    Just curious.

    Thanks.



    Great site you guys have made.

    Thank you.

    Do you know where this Mulder's is?

    I live in Walker. Do you have directions?

    This guy I saw has a sweet setup and i am interested in getting one for myself.

    The guy is fast.

    Funny thing is, I couldn't get him to stop and talk to me.

    I guess he's to anal about his setup.

    payup

    mulders is on 100th st. , West of 131, but they don't actually sell them. They will be able to put you in contact with the guy who's making the swing wing, however.

    I would call all three and check them all out. They are quite expensive, and not for everyone, but in the right situation could be great.

    WOW

    That sounds like a h e double hockey sticks to much money for my taste.

    Well this guy must have a lot of $$$$ invested in his truck.:confused:

    Thats probably why he couldn't stop and talk ! :D

    The reason I was thinking about getting one next time is this-

    I do alot of small lots, lots of small banks with tight drive thrus. I have a 7 ' rear blade on the truck I used up until this Dodge, and it cleaned those up great. When you are working in a large area , though, it would be great to have a few extra feet. So I am going to have Eblings make me one for next season that is 7', with 2 ' wings that extend independently. This would give me an option of 7', 9', or 11'. Combined with a urethane edge, this would be a perfect setup for what I do.

    Combine it with a system that mounts and dismounts easily, and it would be a real asset.
