Looks good with the wheels painted. How big is the blade?

It's an 8' blade. I really wanted a 8611SS Blizzard but nothing reasonable out there and not sure how to get the wings to function.

Honestly, it needs it. Anything would be an improvement. It did get new tires this fall.

It was really weird backing on and not having to worry about hitting the fenders...

Well, got to try the new tires out this weekend. The extra speed is huge but think they have a lot more traction than a regular skid tire. I was hoping they would live up to the hype and feel they were a good investment. The plow scraped good but think it should angle more, probably use it for this year and trade up for something else. The worst part was the ground not being frozen, did have a couple spots that were scalped.

How much snow did you guys get? We had a touch over 4" here.

Not sure what to do on the wings, I would love some hydraulic wings(like a Horst) so it can be folded up when hauling. That may be too complicated, maybe some pin on type?
