    hey guys, Can you mount prowings on a 8,6 western pro plow? I have a cupple larger lots that I think these wings would help a lot. Anybody have wings on a longer plow here? Something is telling me I saw before they dont recomend them on longer plows and of corse the poly plows. Any info/help would be great.

    thats the good thing about them, you can take them off or put them on pretty fast. After running my 1st set a few years ago, every plow I have know has them. Can almost keep up with my blizzard 810. LOL

    But both my plows are 7.5's, but if I had a 8.5, I would put them on. jmo

    also, make it larger in a editor before posting it. If you can't, or don't have the software, send it to me, I will email it back to you adjusted. RepoMan207@aol.com

    Nice. worked mint. :nod: I would love a pair of these, it would save so much time on my bigger lots.

    So what's the deal with installation on the fishers? I have been told you have to drill the moldboard? I am having it powder coated, painted and cleared right now.....I'm not so sure drilling through the powder coat is such a good idea, thats what starts the nightmare of pealing and there is no stopping it at that point.

    Are they removable, meaning, is it something I can take off often and do it rather quickly? Any idea?

    I appreciate the incite.

    I had them on my 7.5 poly, and could take them off or on in about a minute. There are three pins per wing and that is it. And to answer the question, yes unfortunately you do have to drill a hole in the moldboard

    Pretty easy to install; you need to drill a 1" hole in each side of the moldboard and 2 brackets (4 holes) for each side. From my personal experience, these wings are great, and well worth it even if the clearcoat peels. They go on and off easily (3 lynchpins each side) The time you save is incredible. Cut my lot times almost in half and I leave them on for driveways. The driveways go so fast that you almost feel guilty leaving so quickly. Almost. If you get them I did some fastener upgrades I can tell you about. Good luck.
