    I am getting an installed price on this plow of $4550. They will add the western wings for $450. I will be plowing 2 large hotels and possibly a third with my truck. (04 dodge 2500 ctd). Should I get the wings???

    When plowing larger areas the wings are worth their weight in gold. They can really help take time and effort off a job, they can be a little expensive but they will pay for themselves in saving that time and effort.

    I ran wings last year on a 8'6" straight blade. This year I bought a new 8'6" MVP and even with the V blade I will also be running wings. They are great. They should be a big help in Hotel Parking Lots. It is only 10% more.

    how are you getting paid

    if you're getting paid by the hour don't buy them. If you get paid by lot by the inch then you are making a smart business move to buy them; they will simply save you time. Time=money=plow wings. Worth the money:help:
