    I have a 7'6" Curtis Snow Pro 300, with Buyers Pro wings, which add just about another foot and a half. I seldom take mine of unless the snow is very packed or has ice on top of it.

    My wings have thick rubber scrape edges. The thing I like about that is they wipe the snow off the grass without digging up the lawn. The down side to my rubber scrape edges is that they roll under if the snow is packed or frozen over and will cause the main blade scrape edge to ride on top of the snow.

    Three pins hold each wing on. I pull three snap pins, swing the wing away from the Moldboard, and lift it off. It takes maybe a whole minute to take them off, and not a heck of a lot more to put them back on.

    I bought the plow used and they were already on it when I got it, so I don't know what they cost.

    There's a guy on NJ CL advertising that he custom fabricates plow wings. I'm kinda tempted to give him a shot. Sorry I can't post a link to his add.
