    I know this has to have been covered but the search didn't come up with anything. Why are there no Fisher stainless wing extensions for the x blades? Maybe a Fisher rep could chime in?

    I say since the skin is welded to the wings that re force the structure of the wing
    Stainless skin and steel doesn't weld well together. The skin is to thin to weld it to steel.

    You're probably right but you pay all the extra cash for stainless and then you have to put yellow wings on it. It looks ok I guess but I would think stainless wings should be an option for a stainless plow.

    Paint yours wings silver or find you some stainless and over lay the yellow skin

    I wouldn't own a stainless plow for safety reason the stainless plows blend in to much to white out blizzards I think Red or yellow stands out better

    Get a set of yellow ones and paint or powder coat them black. 1olddogtwo stainless western with black wings looked awesome. It's an option anyway.

    I hadn't thought of that. Thanks for the idea!
