    We run 1 16' wing, 1-12' pusher and 1-10' fixed, I think they are one of the best built heavy duty plows around, we love them, move tons of snow would like to add that new one that is fully hydro wings ect.

    We have a 20' wing plow w/pusher kit. We have had it for 2 seasons now and love it. Unfortunately we lost the property that we purchased it for so we are selling it. If you are possibly interested let me know and we can talk some more.

    What are they listing for?

    I can see where one would work well for me, but I can only see us using a 12or 14ft.

    Well, Mr Lowballer, I have a 14' that I've been using since '97.

    Great plow, did have some weak areas that needed to be fixed\re-engineered over time, not sure if they've made these changes in production though.

    Figured since you've been lowballing since '05, it was only fitting.

    Here's a pic:

    That little 212 can handle that size plow? Wow. I would think it would load the blade up and push it sideways. I ran a JCB 520 a few years ago, (Weigh about the same) I had an 11ft Anbo plow on it. It would get sideways if you got into to much heavy stuff.

    Looks like pretty fluffy snow there.

    That was several years back, very nice powder. Also the heaviest snowfall of the year. :rolleyes: :mad:

    That's the same lot that had 'the most snow I've ever plowed' in it as well.

    Hasn't been a problem yet, about 20 more HP would make it a truly awesome machine.

    I would say it's about 13K or maybe a little more with both plows, never weighed it. Only had to fold the wings once, and that was for about 2 1/2' of snow that we didn't get to over the weekend.

    Yeah. That thing looks great. I have looked for a newer 212Su like that (New style loader arms) but can never find one for what I would be willing to pay. It Seems Like AIS always has one, but they are always well over 30K.

    I used to work for a JCB dealer, and really loved to play with 212s. The just seemed to be built tougher than the 214s on up.

    10' with pusher kit on a skid steer here. It's a beast. Had to go to shop once to reinforce the pusher kit install. I can stack snow with it like no other since it's further out from the machine.

    Do you have pusher kits on them? Would a 14' w/pusher kit be comparable to a 12' box?

    We've never tried the pusher kits. Although I'd like to try one. Even with out them they're 10x better than a box. We had a Cat 950 (38,000#) with a 14' x 5' x 5' box, then went to a John Deere 344J (18,000#) with a 16' wing plow. We cut our times by a good 35-45%. Keep in mind the time savings vary by site. We've never lost time by switching to the wing plows. Take in to account the smaller loader, less fuel, cheaper to lease... you get the point.

    Here are some pics from one of our airport customers. We took these just yesterday, January 27th, 2011. They love the wings! double 24 footers, hooked together for a 48' wide pass. Dosent get any better than that!! The wings are the best, they speak for themselves.
