    I'm not sure which you have. But if it says "swing wing" on it, it's probably from Ebling & Sons. They work great from what I've heard and what I've seen. An absolute efficiency machine.

    Cool. Looks amazingly similar to the SwingWing back blade.

    Personally, I'd go with the Ebling blade, far superior in design, manufacturing and strength than a SwingWing. Price is lower as well.

    But then again, what do I know, I plow for beer money under the table and am a 14 YO girl from Florida.

    I called ebling today and they claim that the swing wing plow and the ebling back blade is the same plow. some people just have there own "nick name" for the plow. Is this correct??? Thanks for the refernece on the snokontrol plow as well. I will be looking at both

    Yes, Ebling is the swing wing.

    Doesn't look like an Ebling back blade, just the hitch.

    And for just a tad more you can have a brandy new one, installed.

    As for the terms, technically SwingWing is what Jon Geer runs, designed by his boss and his boss's cousin, built and installed by the cousin. Supposedly there was a patent on it, but never seen any evidence.

    The cylinders are mounted on the inside of that plow. I just saw the demo plow Jim at ebling has going around and those cylinders are mounted on the outside or back of the plow for the wings.

    Not shooting anyone, just informing so no one gets the wrong idea.

    I know it has been answered, but not even close. I have both prototypes of the new style and that ain't it.

    It sure would be nice if someone took some vids of the demo blade.
