    Looking for anybody that has a set of power scoops, they want to part with. They are the things slide in the ends of a straight blade plow, that turns it into a makeshift pushbox. Looks like the picture below. PM me if you have any.

    I'd like to have a set of these on my blade. Where can you buy them?

    The company that made them went out of business due to distributor issues, so the only way to get them is to find a used set, or have somebody fab them up. here is the website for them.

    Let me know on a price.

    I was told the original ones were made of 1/2" plate steel on the sides, but they changed to 3/8" plate as the production continued.

    Also would you be able to remove them easily, like they were made. I am not sure if you looked at the web site. I am looking at them to help with some pushes at storage facilities.

    1/2" plate would be way to heavy. 3/8" or 1/4" would be a better option for taking them on and off. I did look at the site and I could make them so they are easy on/off but I would add a second pin.

    I'm having some steel cut now on a waterjet for wings I'm making so when I go to pick them up tomorrow I hope I will get a price for cutting some steel for these amd figure out how much I can save you over their price. Do you happen to know how tall and how far out past the blade they go or you want?

    Do those that have used these like them better than wings?

    I have a set of endplates on a Hiniker plow. They will move alot of snow. They will also leave snow trails between plow and ends, because they do not overlap the front.
