    Are plow wings helpful? We do commercial lots form 5000 to 80,000 square feet. Any thoughts on the subject? Thanks in advance.

    dont hesitate to use them. if you get a good set, be it the type that scoop forward or create a box plow effect, you will not be disappointed. You will notice substantial increases in production time; some have seen as much as 40% to 45% over a straight plow without the wings..

    Tom,
    Thanks, it seems like pro wings are the way to go.

    I can't plow without them. I cut my plow times by 40%, the first time using them. they say don't put them on poly plows but if you do it right, you can.
