    finally got around to building them, tried them out today! They work great! I plow 37 apartment buildings, mostly sidewalks and some 10 car lots. I do need to get some different rubber for the flaps, but overall they worked great.www.thecreationlocation.com/plow.html ok how do I get the picture to work on here?

    SWEET! I'm envious! I have some small spots I could really use that thing in... so what is the new width? Bout 6.5' or so? Do they come off pretty easy for a deep or wet snow that is harder to push? They don't look "mini" to me! Look big on that beast! Nice "ride" now ya need to build a heated cab next!

    they remove with 3 pins just like the pro wings. New width is 6'4" but the real advantage is how much it keeps the snow from trailing off. I plowed 5" this morning and had no problem with the weight. :bluebounc

    yes 1 hole for each wing through the blade and 2 pins on the sides. The machine has a 800cc engine and weighs in at 1450 pounds when set up. Enough weight to handle the blade and get into trouble:)

    They are 1/4" steel. With rubber bottom flaps. I will take a few more close up pics tomorrow.
