    Finally decided to pay the money, and add the wings. After about 5 hours working till 2 am and waking up at 8 thanksgiving morning I got them installed! Now it's the waiting game for the Nebraska snow! Wings are added on my Boss Standard Duty 7'6 that I bought last year. After hearing everyones comments on how awesome they are, i'm looking forward to using them!ussmileyflag

    I couldn't agree with you more. It was actually crazy driving with them it felt like a whole new plow!

    well I see you going have trail off snow in between the wing and the plow

    You might add some thin rubber from steel edge to the wing to keep the snow from tailing out that crack

    That's the only thing that is bothering me about them. The wing cutting edges are as far over as they will go so i'm going to have to do something like you said above. I'll figure something out, hopefully

    The small gaps between the plow and wing cutting edged shouldn't't be as bad as you might think. Snow will plug it and you'll have little to no spillage. One thing you will notice when your plowing is your plow will chatter because your cutting edge on your plow is wore down and your wing edges are new. Once the rubber wears even with the plow cutting edge it will be fine. If the wing rubber is pushed up all the way and they still are to low, take a grinder and grind the rubber until it matches the plows edge.

    when I put new edges on my wings I go to a back road and lower the blade to where the steel edge isnt touching just the wing edges and drive till they wear even to the steel edge

    You will loose snow in the crack mine did till I fix them wont with wet snow but dry powder snow and slush you will loose
    All depends how picky you are

    I run Boss wings on my V blades and they are great. Super easy on easy off. I cant even imagine plowing without them now.

    Thanks man!

    Driving down the road with them on my straight blade I can't imagine them on a V! I know when the time comes and I get a V they will be added to it! Easy on and off is the best part too. I have a few smaller lots I can take them off to get into tight spots which i'm sure i'll have to do.
