Not sure if I should have put this into the existing "wing" thread or not, but here we go any way...
I received my Artillian extension wings from Chris just in time for last week's snow storm we had here on the east coast, so I didn't have to wait long to try them out. The installation was fairly simple. The only thing I didn't have handy was some yellow paint to touch up the inside of the holes I drilled. The wings worked really well, adding a total of 12" inches of width to the plow. My 4110 has a pretty wide foot print for a compact due to the fatter turf tires being set in the wide position, and with the wings I was able to go full angle to either side and still clear a path for the rear tires. Without the wings, the plow is just wide enough to clear for the rear tires in the straight position, but ANY angle and I was running over fresh snow in the path of it. The wings are pretty stiff when mounted and pushed the snow well. I only saw a little flex in the bottom outer corners when pushing the really heavy stuff, but it didn't seem to affect the clearing path at all. I'm not much of a picture taker, but I did remember to grab a few.
I managed to get the plow mounted just as the snow was starting. The timing couldn't have been much better! My plow already had the factory (I am presuming anyway, I bought the tractor used) rubber edge on it which hangs down lower than the wings. It squeezes down pretty good when lowered to the ground, so the resulting difference was minimal when plowing. I know Chris sells his own version of the rubber edge, and I am assuming that it is closer in height to the wings when installed.
We got a good bit of snow. This was what my deck looked like the following morning, and it was still coming.
These are a couple of shots I took from the cab when plowing.
That all being said, the wings are a terrific improvement to plowing snow with the ridiculously undersized 54" plow Deere cursed us with. I can't thank Chris enough for coming up with such a cost effective solution to this problem. It's certainly much cheaper solution than the Arthur Randall plows, and a lot less hassle than modifying a Jeep plow. I would only consider those options if I needed to push a lot of dirt. If you are just looking for the extra width to push snow, I would certainly recommend a set of the Artillian Wings.
