Is Western coming out w/a Speedwing copy?

    Now that Western has bought out Blizzard and they have come out with the Powerplow - has anyone heard if Western has plans to come out with a copy of Blizzards Speedwing plow?

    As far as a non-powered wing plow, I doubt it for a while. They have some bugs to work out in the Wideout/XLS first.

    I'm sure they will eventually, but like Johnny said, they seem to have some bugs to work out on this design. Personally, I prefer the original design with more options, over the speedwing design. It would seem that there would be limitations with the "automatic" features - like being able to angle the plow while carrying a load to steer the load somewhere. If you angle it to a certain extent, then the wing would come in and part of the load would be dumped.
