    If you remember Winging in Weare, here it is in action. The storm of 2/14/07. The driveway was done Wed and Thur. I waited till Sat for a nice day and have someone to do the video

    Looks Good.

    How wide is the truck with the side wing attached?

    Is it easy to install and remove?

    Thank you

    With the wing on it takes a cut of about ten feet +/-. The wing is six inches off the ground and was only built to push a wind row back. The wing is in a fixed position. It slides into a mount on the truck that doubles as a step. When its on, its held in place by two pins thru the square tubing. A couple minutes on and off. Thanks, Hippy

    That looks great Hippy! Your truck seems to handle it well. Congrats on a nice rig!

    Just a question Hippy, do you just put it on for your driveway, or are you driving all over with that sticking out to the side? Looks like a great setup otherwise. Good videos. J.

    J29, Most all the time it's only for my own driveway. But I have gone to the store (1/2 mi ) for a rack of refreshments with it on! Thank-you, It's our first try on the videos. Hippy

    nice job, did you add any kind of shock in-case you hit a solid object or is that a mute point because it is just for your driveway? What did you use for the plow-an old plow that was kicking around?- Thanks for the video's.

    No shocks

    GrnMtn, Thank you and no there is no give to it. I just use it in my own driveway. If there is to much or to hard of a wind row the P/U gets pushed sideways a little. I don't put any weight in the P/U for that reason. The plow was made from an old Gravley push board. Hippy
