    How do the pro wings hold up when used on say gravel driveways, or places where your blade would normally trip. I have a fisher and it soemtimes trips on say gravel driveways and im wondering how wings would hold up in areas that are rough enough to trip my plow. thanks!

    They handle great. They do not interfere with the blade tripping at all if installed correctly. Since you will be pushing more snow with them on, the balde may tend to trip a bit easier but you will soon learn the new characteristics and accomodate. I found out when I used the wings I cut my plowing time down by almost 1/3. Especially in the more wet snow.

    Also, the pro-wings have a rubber scraper. If you come across a piece of debris sticking out of the driveway the rubber folds right over it. It is still stiff enough to move some snow though. Absolutely the very best $200.00 I have ever spent in my 12 years of plowing.

    I've got Pro Wings mounted on my Fisher 8' plow. I only have a couple of gravel drives left (thank goodness) but because of the rubber cutting edges on the pro wings, they (the steel part of the wings) aren't really subjected to much when the trip edge trips. I'd be more concerned of lateral damage like hitting curbs or walls with the wings because they are rigidly mounted to the blade and there is no "give".
