    Hey everyone..I have a lot of driveways that are curvy and have a problem with the rear tire pushing snow back into what I just plowed. I don't know if it is me being anal but I hate this and try to clean it but it just always happens. Would wings on a 9.2 vxt help with this? Or would I still have the problem just not as pronounced? I don't want to spend 800 on the wings and still be dealing with it. Just looking for anyone that has used them on driveways or cul de sacs and what their results were. Thanks

    I'm guessing wings on a 9'2" would cause a lot of sod damage among other things

    Anytime you plow in a radius with a truck, your back tires drive thru the snow - I don't know that even a 11' plow would get you wide enough to stop that from happening - at some point, a wide enough plow would prevent it.

    The easier thing is just a simple back blade. It'll carry that snow you just ran over. It makes doing the inner radius of a cul de sac a breeze.

    I plow dways with a srw f350 and xls fisher. I love it at 10ft. Circles you sometimes still drive over the snow.

    Thank you for the info that's what I needed to know. I hadn't considered a back blade I don't think I have seen anyone with one around here. Seems as though the wings are best suited for parking lots then.

    My wings are great for parking lots and large wide drives. But most average size drive's - I will remove my wings and toss them in the bed of my truck.

    There so easy to put on and take off.
