    I am still wanting to get a set of Pro-Wings. Like I said a year ago in THIS THREAD it would cost me $140.75 in shipping to get a set of $165 Pro-Wings. Has anyone ever seen a phone number or a web site for Pro-Wing? I want to contact them so I can find out if they have a dealer up here. If they don't have a dealer up here are there any other people here in Alaska that want a set? I see we can get them for $155 a set if we buy six sets. We could then get them shipped truck freight rather than UPS and possibly save a buck or two.

    Hey Crumm, I was also considering wings. Not sure if the Pro-Wings would work on the Poly Plow. Also, looks like some welding is involved in the install. I would lilkey not be able to install these myself. :help:

    The Boss dealer in Anchorage said they could put me a set of wings on for $250 (installed).....didn't say what kind.

    I'm thinking seriously about wings now. That 15" dump we got yesterday had me waisting my time with little trails all over the lot. Did a lot of stacking and cleaning up trails. I think wings would cut my time in half. :nod:

    I get a pretty good discount with Roadway thru my job. Freight on a used 4cyl engine from Washington is about $100. Maybe we can split the cost. Even more savings if we let it ride with a customers order, LOL, he'd be paying most of it.

    Wow! $100 freight for an engine.....that's pretty good :waving:

    I have a retail store in my restaurant and get eaten alive with freight charges.

    I think you can put pro-wings on a poly plow,,,,seems like I read a post somewhere where someone had done it.....

    What's up with our weather? Man.....one day it's 0 deg and the next it's 40 deg. :dizzy:

    Well, the link in the 1st post in this thread shows 'em on a poly plow.
    It was a short winter for sure, LOL.
    As far as freight, Northern Consolidators always had good prices too.

    Guy, when were you planning on shipping the engine? Is the $100 for the engine to Anchorage? I would still need to get the wings to Fairbanks. I was thinking that if I can't get them to my door for less than $200 ($165 wings, $35 shipping) I am just going to build some. Too bad there isn't a dealer here.

    ups ground buys about 95lbs from Anch to Fbks.
    Engine? Dunno, whenever a customer orders a used one... could be weeks.
    I called trailercraft, and they make their own weld-on type.
