    Well with the lack of snow here Ive been pretty bored and needed a project. figured Id build some wings for my ATV plow. Had most of the material laying around so they were pretty cheap to make. Hopefully they hold up ok.

    Nice job.....

    I did a set a couple years for another PS Member that had a 48" blade and patterned them after Buyers ProWings.

    I was 50/50 on what way to do them. I had this idea figured out in my head first so I went with it nothing perfect but they seem pretty solid.

    looks good, does it stop the plow from tripping?
    I may make some for mine but out of plastic 55 gallon drum skins with a metal frame behind like yours

    nice work!

    can you post up a pic of how you mounted them on the back side of the plow!

    thanks and let us know how they work when/if you get snow again this winter!

    Nope, still trips just the same as before.

    I will grab a picture next time I'm out by it! They definitely allow the plow to carry more snow, however I hit a curb pretty hard with one and bent it a little bit. going to have to find a way to tie them into the blade closer to the ground if I want to strengthen them up.
