    JTS............I guess it depends on where you live and how picky 5-0
    is about overwidth vehicles on that day.............LOL !

    I run Turkey Wings and they are like a box so I am no wider than 8 ft.
    so I am under NYS width law at all times.

    I could imagine running a 9 ft. straight balde with Pro Wings on it !.............geo

    JTS,
    Watch out for Kent County, they are kinda picky about wide plows when in transport. Im in Ottawa/Allegan, didn't have any problems when i had my pro-wings. If you keep the blade angled it should cut the width down to do city driving.
    Hope this helps.

    That's generally it - because of the width considerations. As long as you took them off during transport, you would be o.k.. With the truck you have, I wouldn't be too concerned about it not pushing that size of a plow too easily. Your plow width would come in at around 10' 4". That is ALOT of plow!
