    LOL!

    PS - some info on the plow pics I posted...

    Brown Snowplows

    The guy does quality work. Those are Brown front plows, as well. A few people in Maine use them. Great quality built plows. Really heavy though... double the springs on the right side! I've seen quite a few of these and other brands in the Bath - Augusta area, usually used by contractors.

    The button on the shifter looks the same as used for a 2 speed rear end.

    2 are for the plow, middle was dump body, and 3 are for the wing...toe up/down, heel up/down, and wing in/out

    also don't forget the switches haha...hydraulic on/off, plow light on/off, strobe light, rear work light, and side work light

    i really loved that truck...too bad i had to graduate college and move away from school

    it was the on/off for the under tailgate spreader then the auger and spinner speed controls were the 2 dials down by the driver seat

    i like the jjag wing cause its set back so you can see out your window just my two cents. But i bet they all work good for shelfing and pushing back windrows

    just my opinion but if ya want big plows,,,then buy big trucks to put them on


    the frames and front ends on those 350's-550's arent built for that

    I don't have much info on that truck but I've known they've been using it for years and years. It's owned by Chester Rice. Most of the small towns out in Maine there have only one or two big trucks, and they contract out all of the small roads to local contractors. Most of the contractors in that area have pickups and one-tons with wings. They leave the plows and wing plows on some of their trucks all summer (use 'em only for plowing). I can get some more photos of that truck, and a few others this summer. Yeah, I've seen a lot of Chevy trucks with wings, too. I actually saw a Ford F150 flat-bed with a Fisher plow and a custom wing one time near Bath, Maine. I know of a nice '79 Chevy K20 in Bremen, Maine with a wing, which I've been interested in buying for some time, he only uses the truck for small storms, and a lot of times he uses it without the wing. He's not interested in selling it, but I love asking him about it. It's plow and wing is also built by Wayne Brown.

    I actually communicated with the Brown family this winter. Wayne had just passed according to his widow but his son was working the farm and still willing to build plows and wings setups.

    They have a website.

    That looks like a pretty nice set up for 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks.

    The only problem I see is that once you hit something with it, that could be a pain in the butt, without a trip mechanism.
