    If you have to move any snow to particular areas wings are real time savers. They also help when windrowing across the parking lot you just need to remove the trailing wing sometimes.

    I had wings on my Western. I had a few sites where I had cars on both sides and had to take all the snow to the end. Even though my Vee was fast, with wings it was well worth the money.

    You should think about a 10' V with wings for that truck

    I just bought the exact same plow as you have. With that amount of work I would buy the wings for sure. I doubt you will find used.

    I don't believe you can get wings for a 10 ft. V.

    I wouldn't get wings from Jim. He does not include hyrdo fluid in the pumps when you buy a new plow off him. ;)

    I got wings last year and loved every min. of them. The plow even wind rowed good with them.

    Everyone agree that a 8.2V with wings is better than a 9.2 without in most applications? (we dont do any drive thru and i dont do driveways with my truck)

    I would agree with that statement.

    I'm interested in adding wings to my 9'2" Boss V in order to carry snow to the end of tows in an apartment complex.

    Curios though if you lose the ability to backdrag with wings? Any problems with visibility/knowing where the edge of the plow is when doing tight work around parked cars?

    Not sure about Boss but the Western wings have the same markers on the wings that are on the plow.
