    Can you do it w/o hurting anything? I was thinking about doing it because I have a couple big parking lots that it could mean the difference of an hour or so. Also, any recommendations on brands that will fit & won't break on the first go around? I will only be using them on the big lots, no curbs.

    I just saw a set that Fisher makes for the V blades, they look very "beafy" I would think those would last for quite a while.

    You have a link to them? I can't seem to find them online anywhere.

    I never saw it on their site, I don't think they have any pics for them. I saw a set at our Fisher dealer. The one guy said they were around 500 bucks.

    Wowza. That seems high to me, but I haven't ever looked on prices on them. Is that the price I should be expecting for a quality set? If anyone has a picture I might be able to just make a set that'd work just as good & cost me WAY less.

    Well, we had Pro Wings on our old Meyers and they were bent up and the rubber bottoms were orn pretty well, all within a year of light plowing. They ran just over 200 bucks and these other Fisher ones are ten times the wing.

    Just one of these things probably weighs about 25-35lbs and the "rubber" cutting edge is not rubber its some type of a poly material and about 2" thick.

    I would only be using it on my large parking lots that are wide open. Those things are heavy!

    Beating up ProWings is driver error, Look at the pictures I posted of mine after a year of plowing.

    Heavy yes, but well engineered to take some punishment, can't have both.

    Factory options are always going to be more expensive, but they also fit nice and quick, the ProWings are great and I love them, but you have to heavily factor in the price-they are cheap, so they will bend more easily and they don't fit as well.

    I saw the other diagram that you posted. I think I'm going to go to the metal supplier & see about getting some supplies to just make them. If all goes wrong, I can always go back & buy some.

    I'm jealous of all who can weld:bluebounc lucky I have a good friend that can do it for me. just remember your going to want to get your wings powdercoated or keep some good paint handy for touch ups.

    Good luck, I'm sure you'll like what ever you come up with.
