    Hey guys I have about 30 residential driveways this year and i would say about 5-8 are single car width, I have an 8ft western should i putt on the wings or will it be too big then? Also touching on another topic I will be back-dragging a few of these accounts has anyone had any experience with a back-drag system like this.... if so was your experience a good one. the one i am looking to get is like this.....

    I wouldn't waist my money buying wings for a dedicated driveway truck. As far as a back drag edge....couldn't hurt and would probably do better than not having one imo.

    IF, note the big if you are driving forward plowing more than back draging the pro wings are definately worth the couple hundred bucks. For back dragging, its a rubber bottom so fluffy snow is ok, anything else is not great.

    IF, you are only acutally plowing for an hour per storm, the rest is travel time - then not worth it.
