    ive been looking at pullplows and saw one on you tube ( snowplowing 101) i think it was a swing wing. anyone know who makes it and do they have a website. nobody in my area has one ( pull plow) and i know nothin about em. read a few threads on here though and like the idea. appreciate any help.

    As said above, search for John Geer, he runs them and makes/sells them. They are quite a bit of coin if I remember right.

    These guys make those plows ---> http://eblingandson.com/default.aspx

    Click "products" and you'll see it listed.

    The expandable plows are BIG bucks but if you've got the accounts to support it you'll be money ahead in no time.

    I LOVE my daniels.... granted... the pull plow set up is not for every one, or every application.....

    you need to learn were it is usefull and productive, Verse the parking lots that its not

    the swing wing looks cool , but the poly edge , im not a fan of... the steel on mine with the down pressure, scrapes very clean.

    mine even saved me , from a worker totalling my truck rev, into a pole doing 30 mph

    if ur doing big lots, dont bother with it.. were it savs time is the smaller ones, that u have to turn around alot.. or loading docks...drive ways

    that swing wing is awsome! but expensive. most of my plowing ( at this time anyway) could be done just as fast with a 8' daniels or snowman plow. only a few where the swingwing would be handy. i know the wings fold in to 8' or so but its the price. hmm. hafta think about it.
    Thanks for the info guys!

    i just think that the places that the swing wing would be effective, are larger parking lots, and you would be just as fast on those lots , with out a rear plow... its the tight areas, were you have to turn around that the rear blade comes in handy

    I agree. Most of the residentials i do arent wide enough to wing out to 16' anyhow. a 8' rear plow would be just fine.
    Going from a 7'6" meyer to a 9'2" VXT made a huge difference in time already. im looking to shave even more time. that means i can handle a few more accounts.payup

    Thanks again
