Plow Wings??

Discussion in 'Commercial Snow Removal' started by stevejfromRI, Nov 19, 2013.

  1. Anyone run bolt on plow wings on Fisher MM2s?

    I have seen them around, but how do they work for mid size commercial accounts? it seems a little too good to be true that they work as well as claimed by the mfg's.

    Wings are bad, they make you more profitable.
     
  4. Ok, you guys love them... but how were they to install etc. I am looking at trying them out and from what i have read its a no brainer.

    Thats always where i get bitten in the butt... whenever its too good to be true it usually isnt.

    Western and Fisher offer a wing kit now they are the best never owned the pro wings seen to many people around here ripping them off.
    I think the pro wings models are made cheaply

    They all pin on or bolt on Western pins on but they rattle so bad I tap threads on there pins and mine are bolted on no more rattle

    Installation on your first time will probably be 2x as long as it should (it did us) just because you are not exactly sure what you are doing but its not bad. Follow instructions and give yourself a few hours. The last couple sets we did we finished in under an hour.

    I know a guy here never had a problem with them. I think its what type driver you have. I always made my own wings till western offer a set. They are made well vs the prowings.
    Pro wings is half price to vs the western wings

    I think you are correct on the type of driver. The first set I bought years ago I just wanted to see if they really did help without breaking the bank. They worked great with no problems so we kept adding more sets.

    Agree. We get minor bends in them and straighten them sometimes at year end if needed.

    99 percent of the time in storms they are both on. Removed after Plowing is done or in the middle of the day only.
     
  12. I'm gonna try the pro wings, see what happens i guess. thanks to all, i will take some pics and post them later.

    I just installed pro wings a few weeks ago. Just haven't used them yet. The instructions did kind of suck though. Like stated above I could probably install in half the time now.
     
  15. Im getting them from Northern Tool.. i guess its a standard kit. Like you i hope its night and day.

    I've had wings on my Boss V (the OEM Boss ones, very tough!) for several years now and would never go back to not having them...

    Added a pair of Pro Wings I picked up new in the box for $100 last year to a 7'6" Fisher straight blade, they turned what was more or less a useless plow in my opinion into something that is a joy to work with... night and day indeed, you have no idea!!! :D

    They are worth putting on and for the price. They perform as stated and will increase your productivity. Just don't try to over work them and you'll be fine. One lot that I did, took me and hour, and it cut it to 45 min

    I can second this as I did the dame thing with my 7'6'' plow. Bonus tip::::when you bolt on the rubber edges add a piece of 1/4" flat steel. It will help keep the rubbers from ripping off.
