    Very nice rig, I bet its a nice feeling knowing that the tanny wont grenade pushing those heavy loads.
    I did notice one thing tho(and this is more for turketwing). In the pic of the full load of snow and side wings, I didnt see to much snow being rolled in front of the plow. Seems that when it gets full, it would be real hard to roll that much snow in front of the plow. Tht was the point I was making.

    Just got home. 13.5hrs plowing last night and this morning. 8 inches of white gold. The snow does roll good with that much snow in the plow with the wings. No problem. It is an aluminum bed. It is a little light in back but still does a great job. I am going to bed.:)

    I have a Steel SnoWay as well, and I agree... they roll the snow VERY well. Once you get going, it feels like you can KEEP going no matter how much is building up. That is a nice set-up you've got there. I'd like to get one of the new HD's, but they're still a little out of my price range. Just out of curiosity, what kind of wings are those???

    Slim Jim,
    My dealer has them made special for each plow. Its just steel plate bolted to the ends. My dealer threw them in when I bought the plow. He sells them way overpriced at $290. The very front edge is angled if you hit a curb, it will go over instead of ramming it. Blade still can trip if it needs to. The flags are bolted to the top front of the wing. They work good.:D
