    Howdy All....

    Just wondering if it's possible to put some type of wing on a Western Ploy Pro? Seems some models require a rather large hole be drilled in the blade. I don't know if I really want to do that.

    If wings on my plow are possible.... What would you recommend?

    Thanks......

    Dan - Hit up the search box. There was a thread or two about this same subject not to long ago. You could put wings on a poly plow IF you reinforce the back of the blade where it mounts. That's my .02 :nod:

    Wings on a poly

    :nod: Hi all,

    I've got pro wings on a 7.5 meyer poly. I welded the hinge brackets to the metal framing rather than bolting them to the poly moldboard. 1 1/8" hole through poly moldboard is no problem. Wings come with a 6" by 6" steel backer for the 1 1/8" hole. They work great, no problems so far. Huge time saver. Highly recommend.
