    I have the wings on my pro plus plow--they're great
    and well built. I don't think they would work on a regular
    pro. The way they work (look at the pro plus on thier
    web site) the are two re-enforcing rods that run behind
    the wing---they extend out about an inch and receive
    the two holes on the side of the pro plus. The wings
    have two vertical ribs just like a mini section of plow
    one being at the front edge and one at the back where
    it meets the plow.There is also a doubled up horizontal
    bracket that runs from the wing around to the back of
    the plow. Notice on the back of the pro plus the round
    tube that runs the whole lenght of the plow has a bracket
    on each side. That is where the single pin hooks up. The
    one pin hook up is realy nice --on and off in seconds--
    can't beat it. I don't have a digital camera yet--hope to get
    one within the week. I'll put up some pics if someone else
    dosen't before then.

    I contacted Western about 2 weeks ago and they said that they will not work unless it is a pro plow plus. Just some fyi!

    Not sure if you can see the 2 white boxes, but that is the holes that receive the pins on the wings. I think only the Pro Plus has them.

    I can say this, though. For the older style Pro's, the other Pro Wings work just fine.

    Wow. Hell of a lot fancier than our outift.

    This is our oldest K5. You can see the burned off powdercoat on the front from welding the tubing on back. And yes, I did cut holes in the blade to put an arm through to the tubing on the back. It doesn't clog the holes with snow though.

    I'm debating whether I should take this down for powdercoat. It will run about 250 with sandblasting all the old powderoff. Sounds like kind of a lot now that I see it in print.payup But I don't want to sandblast it myself too bad.

    They are ugly, but wings make a huge difference in lots you can't winrow. Which is most of ours. Our Wal-Mart for example wants all the snow pushed to the end. It takes a while. that's why we bought the bliz 810, because we'll be adding another WM super center next year about 10 miles away.
