Will ProWings widen my plowing width?

    This sounds like a dumb question - but I want to be able to plow a wider path. I have a long gravel driveway that falls off on both sides quickly, so I can't put the truck further left or right to plow wider, I have to just stay on the driveway.

    My plow is a Curtis poly home-prow 3000, only 7' wide. If I add at least one ProWing, I'm thinking I can push the snow back another 8" to 10" which will help me a lot when we get a lot of snow and I run out of space to plow snow into.

    Is this the best way to go?

    thanks!

    You really can't just add one pro-wing, you have to put both of them on. It will make your path wider, they work great, i put them on my western 8.6 plow and love them.

    to get there from here

    man there is just no easy way to put pro wing's on a home pro because you have no steel to attach them to were they have to go .you will have to get quite inventive to put them on .

    sure you can, just not sure why you would only want 1 on, but you can just run one.
    this sounds correct, you'll have to fab up a bracket, but I have seen pict on here of people that put them on poly plows.

    what you need is a Sidewing, they have there own website and plenty has been discussed on here to look up.

    poly plow

    I can't weld but I hava an idea of cutting a piece of rectangular steel tube to fit between 2 existing vertical rib tubes to support the inside pin. My idea is to cut the ends to have a tab, and a little depth, which will extend over both existing vertical ribs.

    Then I can bolt through the tabs into the rib. Almost as good as welding a piece in. If that gets too involved, will bring to the welder!

    As far as only 1 wing, I really only need to solve the width problem, drivers side is what I use to do the final push on each side. I'm not sure I want to add too much more stress and strain to my 4 cyl Tacoma. Also will only be half the work to install <lazy>

    My thought was I'd start like this, maybe add the second later. Also, I saw a guy was selling his passenger side one on ebay, same deal. But I want the driver's side too!

    sidewing looks good but $$$

    probably more than I can spend on it? How much you think?
