    Sorry my mistake...not guys, but guy. It is Jon Geer (member here). His has got to be about the number one design of them.
     
  5. I would call Ebling and son's. Thats where I got mine. I looked at the model that geer has, and decided on the ebling one for a few reasons... NUMBER 1. customer service. 616-532-8400, Talk to jim N. at ebling.

    Jon Geer actually gets his mount made at ebling!

    ebling does make a good one and it will save you some money too. i make my own swing wings, and always have an extra sitting inside that is unused, back up or if some one wants it.


    just checked 6300 installed at ebling for roughly a 14' one.

    These things aren't even close to the caliber of anything else. They enter a whole 'nother dimension in snow removal. I couldn't even IMAGINE having the power and ability to handle that much area that fast.
    One question I would love to know. When that blade is set down on the ground, is it exactly perpendicular to the ground? I noticed as you were pushing backward. and I know these have down pressure. Does this scrape just as clean backward as it does forward?

    Eblings blades have adjustable top bars. Once they are set, they are perpendicular as long as the ballast stays the same or close.

    Wow, cool... So these work like turnbuckles or or slotted adjusters or something, so the pitch can be altered somewhat?

    Ok, thanks. I saw that thread before, but I didn't notice the adjustments on the shafts before. I appreciate that. I'll tell you...If I was to outfit anew truck, and I was even conSIDering a rear plow, this no doubt would be the way I would go. In a way, you can't relly even compare this to a rear blade, because even though it is one, it is almost like a whole different piece of equipment. It has in a way, a whole different purpose.payup

    Two brothers in Grand Rapids, MI designed and manufacture the Swing Wing. Their names are John and Jerry Mast. They are expensive, but very nice. If you are interested, I can put you in contact with them.

    Actually, Carl Mast designed and patented the SwingWing. John & Gerrald manufature and install. B&B Truck also manufactures the SwingWing under manufacturing rights given by Carl. John & Gerrald have no rights to the plow other than being family.

    I have full rights to manufacture, sell, and install the SwingWing. I can put you in touch with the right person. I know it sounds all confusing, but PM me and I will send you in the right direction.

    I never knew I had customer service issues??????

    Though Jon is correct, I do have Jim manufacture my mount, the plow I manufacture. They both compliment each other.
