    how well do the pro wings hold up against curbs? i am looking to get some for my 7.6ft fisher because i will be plowing 2 parking lots and it will increase my production greatly.

    I haven't bent one but I am very gentle. Another guy in town goes through 2-3 sets every year.

    I made a mod to my set that strengthened them and kept snow/ice from building up behind the rubber. click on my link below and you can see a picture of it.

    when running curbs you have to keep an eye on it or you will bend them, my downfall is I love to push piles back and that is what bent mine a little bit after 2 years, but still totally usable.

    if your planning on doing this regularly than you might just want to get curb guards and put on a set of turkey wings instead (they turn your plow into box plow like you run a loader with)
