    I have a 2010 Ram 2500HD that I put a C-8 on.
    1) should I add 6" to each side of the plow, or put wings on?
    2) are the cutting edges made of any special kind of steel?

    I don't plow any big lots, only 4 driveways right now, I would just like to be able to push the snow farther back along the sides, instead of driving in my furrow.
    I am leaning towards just adding 6" to each side ( I can fab anything) but was concerned if I should get a 9' cutting edge or just add a 6" piece to each side. I have access to whatever steel I need unless the edge is something special.
    thanks,
    dave

    I extended mine straight out and got a 8'6" cutting edge, it works and has held up but I like the idea of the wings forming a scoup when pushing straight.If you want to fab something from what you have laying around, I'd at least thinking about angling the extensions forward like the wings do. I have never plowed with wings but from the types of plowing I do I cant see where having the lasr 8-10" of the plow angled forwrd would cause any problems that werent well overcome by the benefits.
