    Hello:

    I have an 8" pro plow I want to put wings on. My dealer said the western wings only mount to the pro+. I have a full machine shop, so do you think i could somehow fabricate them to mount to the standard pro? I haven't seen how they mount, so any imput is appreciated!

    I don't think it would be worth the time spent to fabricate mounting points when you can buy the buyers set up for about half the price of the western wings. I have a pro as well and thought the same thing after I bought it and then I found the buyers set up. I want to say they are less than $250 and only take about an hour to install. I hope this helps.

    If you have a full machine shop what is stoping you. The nice ting with the western wings is they come off in seconds. On the outside rib there are holes in it and pegs on the wing go in the holes the a brace on the wing slips over the torsion bar on the pro plus plow and pins in. The big thing I think would be that the pluses are 31" and the pros are 28 or 29" and the wing is made to match the blade. Might have to see if the dealer has a set you could see and compare them next to your plow. Keep us posted I like custom work, I am more of a welder than a machineist but love making things work the way I want them to.

    Thanks, i'm going to see if they'll let me look at a set at my dealer before I go to option B, which is the Buyers set. I just likes the look of the western wing, they look rigid, and like they belong on the plow...

    if you have a machine shop, why not just fab up the entire wing and really save some money? I've thought about doing this but I just haven't found the motivation yet.
