    We run 4 plow trucks, 3 of which have 9' plows and 1 has a 8' plow. Reading the ads for plow wings they say NOT RECOMENDED for 9' or 10' plows? Do any of you run em on larger then 8' plows? We were looking at them and we curios.

    i use them on 7.5 and 8.5 plows currently

    i have put them on a 2 meter plow i had on an s-10 blazer

    my opinion on a 10 footer they may not be heavy duty enough

    possibly the same with a 9 footer ....................with a truck much bigger than a 1 ton you are able to push a heavier amount of snow which they may not hold up to, i think with them on 3/4 and one tons i use them to their strength capacity plenty

    It may have more to do with the fact that wings on a 10 foot plow would make it oversized, legally.

    You'll need to remove them for going down the road.

    I've seen them on a 9' plow. Most plow trucks are rated to move 15,000 gcvw, so I wouldn't worry about the work on the truck. (We always plow in Lo anyway)

    The turkeywing can be put on your 10' plow without changing the width or having to remove them. They will also be heavy duty enough.

    You can't transport a 10' plow straight.

    You'll need to angle it and thus need to remove 1 wing.
