SInce we have to start all over with the 'archives' of information. I'm going to take this opportunuty to start a thread containing soome of the most asked questions- regarding blade wings, ProWings to be specific.

I'd like to post pictures for all those that are wanting more information about them, how they work, how to install them, or any other questions that might be asked when considering them. I'm going to post pictures as various stages of installation, with descriptions. If you would like to add anything along the way, please do.

Here's the first thing you'll see when opeining the box:

I decided that black wasn't a very good color for snowplow parts, so I decided to paint them red and plan to add some reflective tape to the outer edges for better visability.

This is the first coat, just to make sure it'd stick. I had to rough up the surface a little. I'll probably end up using three coats just so it makes a strong and thick layer.

WINGS...........I have a set of Turkey Wings on my
Western rig. This will be my 3rd season with them.

They work GREAT for my application because I have
a LOOOOOOOG pushes to put the snow way out
back on my field.
No spillage, great to windrow with just one on one
side.
I can adjust the spread on them so they will be wider
than the plow. If you don't need them during back
dragging...Just pull the pin and they come off easily.

Another plus with the Turkey Wings is they will
"trip" with the plow because they ride up and down
in channels and are not solidly mounted to the blade.
They also "ride" up and down in the channels to
ride over bumps, lumps, etc................

Check out their web site www.turkeywings.com
to see them in action !

I was TOO cheap to buy a "V" plow....So the Turkeys
were a bargain at $200 bucks for my straight blade!

Here's one of my sets. I didn't like the black either ;)

Handy,
It looks like you had to cut off the edges a little, and lose some plow width! I bet you had some tight spots that required that modification?

JOE, The only mods I have done to the Turkeys
was to drill a hole in the bottom of one of the
slots and add a lynch pin......Then they wouldn't
ride up out of the channel when tripped.

I also use a lynch pin on the top chain so I can
adjust the wing "spread".

I haven't seen other brands of wings in "action"
and didn't know if they tripped with the plow
and I assumed they were not adjustable.

I saw the Turkeys at the BBQ and my questions
were answered. So they were the best for my
needs. Rod the Turkey Wing guy gave me a
cash money special deal $200 bucks complete!

Micah 79 Just picked up a new set from Rooster.
(He stole them too.... cheap!)
Rooster bought them then changed to a V plow
so he didn't need them !

Stop by my place and ya can check them out!

Handy-

You sure had to cut a lot off of those wings when you added the U-edge. Do you have any problems with snow leaking through?

BTW.........

A LOT of the Plowheads in my neck of the woods
always stop by and watch them in action !
(While waiting for the bar to open and have a
cold one AFTER their route is finished !)

They say WTF are those things ?

I have a laugh too. Some think I am running a
box plow on my rig !

I have never seen anyone out here running ANY
kinds of wings either...commercial or residential !

The Turkey wing guy wants to send me a few sets
to show off to these guys out here.........

I don't know.... toooo busy now as it is!

I am gonna turn my local Western dealer onto them.
He NO sell any kind of wings so maybe it will work
out for them........................geo

Yes,

I had to cut the wings to fit with the u-edge 1.5" under the mold board last year.

This year I sandwich the u-edge between 2 cutting edges. My little Meyers can use the extra weight and I pick up 3.5" of moldboard height, the gap you see in the wings. I am going to close up the gap with some deflector rubber to prevent leaking.

Don't know how things will work as yet :rolleyes:

This may be me on the first run :headwall :headwall

Will keep you posted

LOL I wasn't talking about that. For those that were concerned, that gap doesn't allow any snow through.

What I was saying is that it looked likt the OUTSIDES of the wings were cut down smaller for some reason. Looks moreso on the driver side wing. But it could just be the picture also.

took a little of the sides, about 3/4" a side.

Still measures 8'11"

I like the Sponge Bob theme on the plow. If you look close enough you can see him on my dash.

Mark.

Just out of curiosity, how long did the rubber edges last before you guys replaced them with urethane?

My local dealer is bringing in some urethane for demoing this year, I might try to get my hands on a few pieces for the wings, if the rubber isn't strong enough.
