    Has anyone attempted to attach the pro-wings to a Meyer-Max stp 7.5?? I found a picture on eBay of the back mounting on a western plow. I see they mount to the face of the plow, and i do not mind drilling the mold board. Everybody says not for the poly plows! I have thought of fabricating a rear reinforcement system that’s welded to the rear sub frame to help support the poly mold board to help except the pro-wings mounting points . So what do you guys think??? Do pro-wings really help? Should I destroy the poly moldboard to be the research subject or what?

    Thanks,

    SNOWGETSPLOWED:cool:

    pro-wings???

    usually the pro wings just suck. you would def. have to do some reinforcement on the poly so that you dont ripe the wing out of the moldboard. I wouldnt try it, but hey its yours; go for it.:salute:

    Yes I do use Pro-Wings on all of my plows. Yes I have installed them on poly blades. I have fatigue cracks around large holes in moldboard. They have been there since the first winter and never grown.

    On all my plows(both steel and poly) I mounted the pivot point bars to the ribs behind the moldboard. The mount angles in and sits flat against the rib. Then a piece of angle is welded to the other side of the rib which meets with the rest of the mount. This allows the moldboard to remain smooth when the wing is removed.

    If I lived in an area that received more snow I would buy Blizzard plows with the wings. But, I can still move a lot of snow with the Pro-Wings.

    Lawnmedic,

    Iff'n yer calllin that there plow a polly plow you have been smellin to much gas fumes this summer. That sure looks like rust on the back of your mold board and it sure looks like its welded to the sub-frame.

    Well iIff'n any of yous plow jockeys out there have some pics of a poly mold board with the pro-wing on them let me know. I also found there things called "curbiess" on e-bay that mount on to the cutting edge bolts. They look like they would work great on a poly mold board. :bluebounc

    I have something similar on mine that I made 10 years ago that do the same thing, don't know how anyone can do a proper clean job without something on the ends of the blade to help hold in the snow on the final passes to do a clean job. I mainly do condo complexs and all the snow has to be pushed to certain areas and not off to the sides. The ones I made stick straight out about a foot and a half infront of the blade, work great.

    Your right The pictures I took were of a steel moldboard. It was outside and easy to get to. My truck with the poly on it is staged about 8 miles away, and unless we get enough work to need a salt refill at it's location I don't plan on seeing it.

    As for mounting the Pro-Wings, I mount them all the same. There is a large metal plate that goes behind the mounting pin that goes through the moldboard . This spreads out the load of the Pro-Wing on the moldboard.
