    I have question about plowing. I realy don't want to put both of them on. Dose any one just run with the passager side or diver side wing on? I do a lot of diverways that have turn arounds in them with my truck and I thought that it would just make my life a lot easier if I just had the passanger sid wing. Any thought on this? I know the wings come on and off easy.Thanks for ur help.

    take the wings off for driveways, not necessary unless they are really wide driveways where you are spending a lot of time picking up tailings.

    I am new to wings also I took my wings off because they were holding my blade up a little on back drags so I took off the rubber piece and moved them up a little over an inch so I can back drag and still plow when needed keeping the pads about 1/2 inch off the ground this really has paid off for me but I see a lot of people running around with just the passenger side on so do what works like hydro said they come off easy thats the nice thing about them but they sure are handy on my 8 foot straight blade when I need to pack snow a distance!
