    ok guys...i had em new last feburary, they have some life left on the edges but not a whole hell of a lot., i estimate 40% remains. i ended up snapping the lower guide pin on the passenger wing and that allowed the wing to rotate backward like 6" and tweak the bracket all out of shape.

    1---anybody who twisted up a driver blade, need a set with good drivers?

    2---these will make GREAT bolt on wings for a pro-plus if you can handle having them on all the time..i won't..

    3---if i ship em you know it's gonna suck, unless i cut off brackets for bolt on install, then they aren't that large and are under 80lbs for UPS..

    somebody can use these on a skid steer or a large lot blade...they really do add a lot to your carrying capability.


    pics soon if there is any interest, but my description is honest, the one bracket only is twisted, otherwise they are very usable.

    WESTERN STRAIGHT BLADE PRO-PLUS

    I was thinking of picking up the western wings next year for my new blade, but all i have heard are bad things about them about how weak they are. Or it is just guys beating on them. But i am going to get the 9'6" MVP plus so I think that will most likely be big enough for my applications. I love my pro wings. I just hate having to take them on and off during the day. At night i Just leave them on and drive around town no problem.

    PM me with what you're trying to get out of them. I was tossing around the idea of fabbing a set for one of my unimounts and these would probably be a nice donor set.

    i am asking for half the cost of a new set, but i am taking what ever i get in the next week.

    225.00 OBO....they still have more than half the edge left, and the bent CAN be fixed pretty easily with a large torch and 2 guys...

    basic torch and welding skills and you have em fixed.


    on the pro plow....i think mine is a little taller than yours...32" vs 28?...ask B&B he'll know for sure.

    they are here if someone wants to come throw some cash at me and get em...

    nope...i'd lose my azz....shipping will kill me...prolly 40+ bucks...

    split it with me and i'd think about it till Thursday....woudl you be permanent mounting them?..i ask because if i can cut off the large brackets fro a bolt on install they would ship a lot easier.

    these were 569 new for me guys....and are still 459 everywhere i found em...
