    Do a search, I'm so tired of typing, this too has been talked about, about a bizzillion times, I know, I asked the same question a year ago. Search under "wings" and then print all the threads, read at your leasure, that's what I did.<a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008_ZNxmk376BEUS' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/36/36_1_20.gif' alt='Laughing 2' border=0></a>

    plow wings seem to be the hot topic right now. try looking in some of different categories on here, you mite find some useful info. I've also been asking about wings the past few days. I found the wings from Western were too expensive, so I did some searching and asked some questions. Some sites to visit are Angelos, Central Parts Warehouse, and Northern. They got some pretty good prices.

    I have Prowings on my Myers and the only thing that I changed is I put a thicker rubber scraper on it. The original was too floppy and would fold back too easy. I have a 1 1/2" think rubber on it now and it works good.

    Hey Stan.. Turkey Wings "may" not be available anymore.
    Either way they really shouldn't be looked at as "wings" because they turned your plow into more of a "pusher box" or "containment plow" as do the MegaScoops that are available.
    Both allowed you to push and "carry" more snow.
    Plow extenders or the true "wings" are available from Buyer's and EZ Technologies, these are the ones that widen your blade and help stop snow trail off from the ends when windrowing.

    If you would like information on the MegaScoops or Wings please feel free to e-mail me and I'll call you back and help you out as much as I can...
    :rolleyes: John...

    When I pulled up a search there were alot of mixed emothions with both. I contacted Turkey end of last season and was convinced this was the way to go. BUT seems like he's out of biz and pro wings are perhaps the way to go. I do mainly parking lots with a meyers 7.5 pushing w/a k5 blazer. Seems to take forever to clean up and looking for a way to save time.
    When I plow I dont beat the crap out of my truck, take my time and drive like granpa. I've heard pro's/cons & looking for the best option available. I really do appreciate the input.

    Stan If you don't have the luxury of being able to roll the snow off your blade into the areas it needs to go or have to carry the snow to locations for stacking then the "containment" or "pusher" set up is the way to go.
    I ran Pro-Wings for over 10 years and loved them, but I needed to "move" more snow and changed to the Scoops three years ago.
    Stan I can't begin to tell you how much I can move in less time, plus leaving you with a much cleaner product when your finished.
    Withall the overbuilding thats being done in most areas the lack of places to put snow when plowing I'm wondering how soon it will be before we see more light weight steerable pushers made for the front of pick up trucks..
    Again if you would like to discuse either option in more detail you can e-mail me.

    Wow did you say that mega scoops are available. I have been trying to track
    down the POwer scoops guys for some time. I would like to get a couple sets at least. Are they similar to the powerscoops?
    Any info or help would be greatly appreciated!!
    I have 9 western 8ft plows and just purchased my first Blizzard 810.
    I would love to make my westerns more productive
    I sent you an e-mail also
    Looking forward to hearing from you

    sent you an email also. Very interested. I have a few accounts where I need to push from one end to another. Sounds like I'll save some time.

    I`d like to get the pro wings, but don`t like the idea of drilling a 1" hole in the moldboard.

    Anybody try attaching a similar set to the back frame ribs on a Fisher ?

    I went with Pro Wings and yes had to drill the 1" hole, trust me it's no big deal, I've see plows with slashes bigger then the hole I drilled.

    I bought a set up the power scoops from Garagekeeper last year. I believe that they are the same as the mega scoops, just different name. They are a considerable time saver, and they do push a lot of snow. They mount easily, and I did not have any problems with them. They also help with trail off, no more going back to clean up trailers all the time.
