    Default Snow blower wings

    Been among the missing for some time now and haven't been on any lately.
    But I've been enjoying the new blower I got last year and didn't get to use.
    This year we've had some snow to play with,so my question is does anyone have a design for some wings to extend the width of the blower. I would like to widen it maybe 6" on both sides to avoid the wheels from kicking in more snow.
    The blower is a 64" frontier and it seems to be the same width as the tractor,
    go figure !
    Any ideas ?
    Thanks guys.

    Seems a few owners have had the same idea. I asked basically the same question and got a whole bunch of answers.

    I decided on 4" on each side for my extension and even that, I think, might be too much. I have the material cut and bent and just have to paint and install now.

    Here is the link to the thread I started - exactly the same scenario.

    http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/c...wer-front.html

    Incidently it cost me $50 for the wings - cut and bent to my specs plus two pieces of 2" x 1/4" flat bar 33" long. Not very expensive - just five bolts on each wing to install is all.

    HTH

    Thanks Jim, I've got a shop close who can bend what ever I need.
    Even 4" might be enough to get me by.

    Here's some pics of mine I made last fall. Still have them for sale if interested. Or if you just need some measurements let me know.

    Here is what I did - the extra width is 4" each side. They seem to make a difference - I now have a couple of inches clearance on each side of the rear wheels.

    Cheers
