    Hey, I plow for the city on an island, got a new Ford Louisville 7yrd. dump, and I want to put a wing blade on it. It's basically my truck to do with what I want, anyone know anything about this? I have an old F-800 too with a junky wing. Thank you!

    No, I was thinking of that new style where the toe is elevated by a hydrolic cylinder pushing a cable. I don't think those are to popular yet, but I saw on a while ago. This is because I do not want the rail for the toe to stick up like most do. Do you know what I am think of?
