I've had quite a few requests for details on my plow wings. They are Cycle Country brand. They attach with 2 bolts per wing. I added rubber to the bottoms to match the JD squeegee I have installed. Overall width is now 60". Hope this helps.

I like those Wings! :thThumbsU
If I remember right, from past posts about them, angling the blade the wings don't bother the snow moving to the side?

Not at all. The snow glides right off when angled. The rubber on the wings does contact the grass on the edges of the sidewalk when angled. I think if I had not installed the rubber, there would be massive turf removal in the neighborhood along the sidewalks.

That is just like I had them configured on my ATV. It helped the 48" blade grow a little wider while keeping the snow from spilling out. Same top flap too (handy for the deep fluffy stuff).

The main difference is that your looks great :fing32: and mine looked like a dull coal plow with blackish wings and an old dull rubber flap. Very nice!:trink39:

One thing that I did after the 1st problem (the wing hit something and bent outward wrinkling the blade where the two bolts are) was to install a piece of metal about 1-1/2" wide x 3/16" thick x the distance between bolt holes + 2-3" in length as a large washer. I bent it close to the radius needed, marked and drilled the holes, then tightened the bolts to snug it in place. I wish I would have done it before the damage.

The JD plow may be a thicker blade though so you might be fine as is.

After 2.5 seasons and hitting a curb last year, no damage to report. I think the Deere blade is quite a lot thicker than ATV blades are.

I thought I had better attach a more current pic that includes my Deere quick hitch light kit with LED's.

I'm anxious to see that baby in action. Hope you can fire up a camera when the snow comes.

If the snow ever comes! Only got to use it twice this year. I haven't even been able to use my other X585 with the cab and blower, not enough snow. I'll grab some pics if it ever does snow...
