    Does anybody have any pictures of how the blizzard plows are raised and lowered? The web site doesn't snow what is underneath the black box. Am also curious how the wings go in and out, am thinking a hydraulic cylinder but don't see any room in there for that to fit.

    Underneath the black cover is the hydraulic pump. The plow itself uses an arm that pushes against the truck mount to raise. Wings are controlled by hydraulic cylinders in the case of the 810, 8611, and 8611LP or cables in the case of the 760 and 860 Speedwing.
