    I just have to post somethings about my HD75 and the wings I purchase this year. The wings are AWSOME they were worth every penny. My dealer has also been very helpful everytime I have had a problem they made it there top priority. I have had some issues but nothing the dealer couldn't fix. The only thing i wish snow dogg would make is a metal power pack cover. I have broke three and repaired one three times. now it is just bungee chorded on till the end of the season. I Just wanted to say if you were thinking about getting the wing go get them there great.A

    Agreed, The wings have saved me so much time. I see your deflector is gone, I broke 2 and decided I didnt need it anyway. I havent broke any covers. Plow is my favorite of the 6 I have owned.

    Yes I agree about the motor cover, I have also broke the headlights at the base once and the deflector didnt break but it pushed out from the middle the bolt holes on it really should all be round not u shaped. I really should get wings I bet they would help me alot they just seem pricey

    yeah deflector broke off about two months into plowing. Dealer has since replaced it with the rubber one. The hard plastic deflector just couldn't handle the january cold.

    I am contemplating adding the wings to my HD75. Are they the kind that fold back behind the plow? Pretty easy install I'd assume? I haven't had any problems with my deflector, when stacking snow it bends straight back and havent had any problems yet. I would recommend the backdrag edge too, I love mine. Also, what did they get you for a pair of wings if you don't mind me asking? Thanks

    The wings are a purchase you won't regret. They are the ones that fold behind the plow. that feature has come in handy several times this season. As for the install it couldn't be easier, two bolts and a U-bolt and that’s it. The mounting bracket comes off the wing with two pins so it makes installation a snap. The wings set me back only $475 at my local dealer, they wanted $525 installed but it is defiantly something you can handle yourself.
    I don't know how far your cutting edge is worn down but I would suggest purchasing a new one to install at the same time. Mine was worn away 1 1/2 inches when I installed my wings. I cut the rubber to match and now have to replace the edge and rubbers for next season.

    I was wondering about the back drag blade. I do a warehouse with 12 loading docks and just can't seam to get them clean. Does it make a big difference? Doesn't snow pack into the section between the two blades?

    I appreciate the feedback on the wings. Another question, can you fold them forward to make a scoop? As for my backdrag edge, I love it. It took a while for the dealer to get any in, but I was the first one to pick one up when the did arrive. It does a great job, and I haven't had any issues with the snow packing between the to blades. I keep mine held just a 1/4 inch higher than the cutting edge so it doesn't wear down.

    I just looked at the picture of your truck again. I looks like you do have them folded forward to make the scoop.

    Hey BMAN1, I see you have the back drag blade for your HD75. I am planning on wings in the off season and am considering the backdrag blade also. Couple of questions; what did they get for the b/d blade, how thick is it, and does it use the same mounting holes as the cutting edge? thanks

    I just saw this question, I am not as happy with the ack blade as I thought I would be. Snow packs between both the forward and back blades and causes the blade to slide more, packing driveways down at times. I may take it off this upcoming season.

    Hey Dodgespt00,

    Just noticed in your pictures that your cutting blade sits a little off the ground due to the rubber not yet worn on the wings. Was this picture after some use or does it take a while to get those to wear even. I only ask because I put my wings on and I wore my cuting edge more last year than I thought and I will have to wear the wing edges down quickly to get that 1/2-3/4" back.

    These pics were taken right after i installed the wings on the truck. I had to cut them up with a saw to get them down. they just don't wear that fast if you don't . this year i'm replacing the edge and the wing rubbers. My hope is that the cutting edge won't wear as fast this year with the wings as it has in the past. I know after i installed the wings I didn't't get as much wear on the edge. Those wings also help with uneven pavement on a angle and especially pushing straight. Enjoy the wings they make such a difference.
