    Made my own plow wings, but I think the angle is wrong. At full angle with the plow, should the wing be at least 90* to the vehicle, (so snow can trail off instead of being captured)?

    I'm not looking for a box type, I want the snow to trail off, but not come past the high (leading) edge to slow down progress.

    They are 45*, at full angle they are still slightly forward. Haven't any snow to test them!
