    I want to see some pics. I have hit man hole covers hard enough with my EZ V to break off portions of the cutting edge, bent the pin that holds the rear of the angle ram on and scare the crap out of me. but I have not noticed any stress cracks

    V the weld out and weld it again. Then put a plate of some sort on top of it. You could also put a couple of gussets on the upright frame. You can easily fix that, instead of buying new wings. JMO

    the wing looks like it is bent, but thats still an odd place for a crack. be sure to check the whole thing over top to bottom in case there is a bigger problem thats hard to see. definitely a fixable break. good luck.
