I think I've got two sets of those in the scrap pile, not a fan. Might check out some wings from Meyer this week, they fold I guess?

The Terex been okay? You buy that 810 yet?

If you are worried about it being to wide for transport, just drop the plow into the back of the truck and hook it up when you get onsite.

I have seen the Meyers, but never really look to close at them. but if they work then get them.

I had a local machine shop bend me up 2 extensions to match the curve of my moldboard.
I welded some bracing to the back and bolted them to my 8' Erskine blade making it 10 ft.
They angle forward at 30 degrees to make a pusher out of the plow, but I can still angle blade with it.
I used the face out of a truck tire for a rubber cutting edge on the wings so hopefully they won't scrape the ground so hard as to bend the wing.
Been using them for 4 years now and they work great imo. Really increases the volume the blade can carry and keeps snow from spilling around the front. Also pushes the bank a extra foot from the loader when angled.

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?


5 inches. First had a hydraulic hose blow out on one of the skid plows. Then put on the snow bucket and the welds broke on both sides about 6 inches back on bucket bottom both sides. Then the plow on the 6500 broke a pin. HAHA still was in and out in about 8 hours though.

I debated between trying to fab something but after looking at the Meyer adjusting wings, just got the Meyer ones. They fit up pretty good, got them mounted but am going to paint them(but what color?) and will be ready for more snow. If it will snow...

Well, here is the adjustable Meyer wings on the blade. It was very surprising how close they are to match up. The wings can be set straight back, at a 45 or boxed. I don't know how well they work because it just won't snow. Now that it's all setup, anyone want a 440? Kinda thinking of getting an Alpha.

You build that blade? I'd love to see a closer shot of the area that connects to the loader.

Yeah, it only has 453 hours now. It has some scuffs on it but try to keep it nice, I also keep it inside a lot and when outside it is in the shade so it won't get faded. It's kinda sad how low of hours but the work isn't out there right now.

I think I have a shot of that, it's a Hoover 8' blade. They make them east of here a little bit, they have an awesome pallet fork that I want.

Hmmm interesting. I built a few using old coventional westerns (they are a dime a dozen around here). That mount looks alot beefer than just using the orginal A frames.
