    Looking for pics of a Ford F350, 450, or 550 dump truck with a front plow and a wing plow on the right passengers side. Looking to have someone paint a picture of one of them. Pretty hard to find pics of them. Wondering if anybody has seen what i'm talking about.

    Thxs.

    Do a search for JJAG.

    And you can look through my posts, I have posted pics of mine before, but I'm too lazy to find it for you.

    Dirt Digger- like the set-up. Does the wing plow work good? Considering buying a set-up like yours. need some tips/opinions on it.

    yea i thought it worked great...made plowing roads very nice because a typical road could be done in 2 passes rather then 4

    it was a little heavy on the front of the truck, but the 550 handled it well

    they had (3) 550's with wings...the one i ran had the hydraulic lift on the wing, the other 2 had a cable lift that seemed to give them problems, so i would go hydraulic lift

    but really its only good for long straight shots and roads; it was slow to raise and lower so if you had to do a lot of backing up, etc... when the wing wasn't needed it might take you more time then you think...when i would come to cul-de-sacs i would just raise the wing and tuck it away and do the whole thing with the straight blade...less chance for me to accidentally hit a car or mailbox

    Cool :) Do you know if it was a Fairfield wing system. Did some more research and found a company up in NY that makes systems for 1 Ton trucks.

    It's not complicated, 2 are for the plow, 2 are for the wing, 1 is for the dump body, and I'm not sure what the other one does.
