    I want to add wings to a 9' Sno-way with Lexan.

    Has anyone here done this?
    How did it work?
    What modifications were needed?
    Which model (wings) did you buy?
    Do you have pictures of the final assembly or in-process photos?
    Thanks,
    Mike

    Jeff (aka Meverick) has them on his 9 ft. Sno-way but he has the stainless steel blade. I've never seen anything on the Lexan boards.

    I don't think the wings on Jeff's (aka Maverick) are actually Turkey wings. If I remember correctly I think he said the dealer he bought the plow from made them, and I don't think they trip like Turkey wings either. Also like others said I've never seen wings on a lexan plow only steel and poly.

    Maverick has sides on his plow that allow his blade to operatre more like a pusher. If you do a search you may find the pictures.

    Wyldman has Turkey Wings on a SnoWay. I don't recall if he fabbed them himself. Do a search and you'll find his pictures. He also has some posts about stitching lexan which is interesting on the SnoWay's.

    I'd also be interested in wings on my snoway. I've thought about it, but it seems like there isn't much there to attach them to. Looks like it would need some decent beefing up. Nick.

    My partner and I have been doing some research on turk-key wings for his 8' lexan sno-way. We talked to a rep at turk-key wings and said that the set they sell for a western will fit on his sno-way. We ordered the on Monday. I will update with any good/bad info when we get them, and use them.

    Guys.I have Turkeys on my steel Western rig.

    They work GREAT for my applications. Plowing
    bank drive-thrus, tight spots, or pushing that
    white gold waaayy back out on my field to get
    it outta the way.

    Easy on or off too.........In case I have to do some
    back dragging........

    You also can adjust the "spread" on them a bit to
    get a wider path.

    They can be mounted on a poly moldboard.........
    You just have to add bigger washers or a piece of
    steel to the face of the moldboard for added strength.

    A added plus is they ride independent of the moldboard
    in channels to ride over bumps and humps.

    They also trip with the plow.

    There is also no rubber edges or fins to wear out either.

    But like I say they work for my needs..............geo
