    I want wings! I have a 8'5" Extreme V SS. I have a 9' X Blade SS on a F550. I want wings for it and my V. I have had many Western straight blades then a Boss 9'2" V poly plow. Then went to Fisher for the Stainless. I want wings please give them to us! If you agree chime in here as I plan to link this thread to a Fisher/DD rep. I do not want a Blizzard(or the 2 imitations you have created) and do not want to go back to the Boss please help. The Fisher V is coming up a lil short compared to the Boss and just think you can charge us $600.00 for them like Boss does.(oh wait stainless better charge us a lil more) Ok really the market is there please get them to us.

    :confused:

    Measure your moldboard height and from the outside rib of the X-frame to the first trip spring bracket. I will measure the same and compare. I kind of thought the EXV was based on the X blade. If the above dimensions are close, I am sure you can make the wings work. You will only have to drill three holes per side. Just checked CPW and they are 492.00

    I had asked Brian Simmons from Fisher about a set and i think he said that the spring hangers were different on the X and X-V. Id love to try to retrofit a set of the X-V wings but 500 bucks is a lot of money for something im gonna have to cut and weld. If the spring mounts were the same itd be mint, but he said they werent unfortunately :cry:

    Thanks a bunch for the offer, i definitely would appreciate the measurements because if i could make em work i would love to!

    How do you like the wings? Thanks again - Nick

    Nick,
    According to Fisher, our moldboards are the same height. Next, I measure 8 3/4" from full outside of frame to center of hole on spring bracket. I looked at the X-blade construction on Fisher's website and I see the diff in spring bracket. It still looks like you may only need to add a steel bracket on the top of the spring bracket so you can get a hole there to accomodate the third attatchment point. Look at big dave's reply and you will see what I mean in that thread. Scroll down to the schematic.

    Love the wings except for the poly edge. It seems to beat stuff around quite a bit. Changed the edge to plyable rubber. We will see how that works on our next storm. Brett

    Who has an email to reach this guy? Fisher SS have gotten much a much larger sales volumn now. We should be offered wings now. I see no reason they would not want to sell us a product we are requesting.
