    Dont mean to hijack your thread Fireman, this info is useful to me as well, however I have an additional question for any that has done this. Now that I have a better understanding of how the pro wings install, I was thinking about getting a set for my NON pro blade. Welding/fabricating a mount system for them. Anyone done this before? have pics they could share?

    Since the weathers expected to be warm the next few days, I think I might try to get it done this week.

    Fireman,

    I found that to get my wing to go into and out of the hole in the blade face I had to go a little larger than 1 1/8. I used a plasma cutter to increase the size.

    Perficut,

    I am not sure what you mean by a NON Pro blade. They are designed or can be easily made to fit on any blade with a metal mold board. They can even go on a ploy blade with a little more work.


    Dollar for dollar, they are simply the biggest improvement you can make for a straight blade. I think they seriously cut my time on site by half and I am pretty picky about how my plowed area looks when I am through.

    Questions after install

    thanks for the help guys. I was able to put them on and they do work great. I used a bi-metal hole saw and it worked great. Now I have another question. I am trying to search the site for some pics but can only find a couple. Are the rubber blades supposed to sit behind and up tight with the cutting edge or is the rubber supposed to sit on the cutting edge. I have found pics of both.

    My initial thought was that the rubber next to the cutting edge left a small gap and thought it would create a few trailers.

    thanks again for all the help. I can't believe how much difference the wings made. It was well worth the two holes in the mold board.

    "Are the rubber blades supposed to sit behind and up tight with the cutting edge or is the rubber supposed to sit on the cutting edge"

    Mine sit "behind and up tight" and do not leave any trailers.
