    I just recieved a set of Pro Wings for my 8' MM2. I understand what they do and i think they will work great for my parking lots...BUT i had no idea that they where made of such thin material. I was shocked when i took them out of the box. Do these actually last?????????????? I am generally a very cautous plow operator.

    they'll be toast by the end of the season. we run them and they get the hell beat out of them. We're pushing ours with quarter tons too. I wouldn't plow without them though, we save so much time they more than pay for themselves.

    I've had mine for 3 years . I love them . if i go off the drive I have 10" before I tear up the grass . If I have to straight plow it cups the snow . ya they don't last I've welded mine .

    I would not plow with out them.

    Mine bent on the edges and lost a few rubber cutting edges but once I added some metal behind the rubber it was fine.

    They're great time savers- You'll love them. Go easy on the curbs and you'll be fine. Pick up an extra set of rubbers and replace the washers with the biggest ones you can find and don't tighten the bolts down too much. Good luck-:drinkup:

    What he said. ^
    I run urethane edges on them instead of the rubber. 100 times stronger and they will last as long as the plow's cutting edge will. I also put huge washers on them and I drill a third bolt hole near the inside upper corner of each wing also.

    Here are a few pics of a new set I just put on my Curtis. Notice the third bolt, the large washers, and the thicker edges. These are 2" thick urethane edges.

    This last pic shows the pathetic rubber edges they come with.

    Mine have been bent back and forth over a dozen times but I would rather bend a wing than break a plow. I think you might just have to accept replacing them annually. For me it is worth a new set for the time savings.
