    Default Wing Plow

    Finished fabricating the new wing plow for my Deere 4300 and gave it a trial run last night. It works great. Better than I had hoped for, with pencil design and good friend who is handy with welder and fabbing.

    Is quick tach, only two pins to drop in and a chain to secure to the 3 ph lift arm. Will fit on either side and attaches only to the FEL post and to the drawbar. The push bar is telescoping (manual now) to vary the rear of the wing from 5 1/2 ft from tractor center to 8 1/2 ft.
    Here is a pic from the rear, but will show more later when outside pushing snow.

    How dare you merely wet our appetites with just one picture. Very creative build. I want to see more.

    Yeah, sorry 'bout that delay. I thought I'd get some outside pics today, but too busy during the daylight hours. And the rust is beginning in earnest, so have it in for some paint tonight - where it is warm.
    But here are a couple pics of the front attachment and the rear drawbar arrangement.
    And the 2" ball and trailer hitch was just the ticket. Hydraulics to raise the front up and down, and a ram to move the push bar in and out would make it a pretty flexible wing. But not planned at the moment. More pics in the daylight - hopefully tomorrow if the painting goes well tonight.

    As I said in another post,nice job!
    I'd say you've got a handle on the point cut.
    Also the more you kick the rear of the wing out,the less chance they'll
    be of it digging in.
    Ok some nice wings out there,but who's coming out with twins,one on both sides?

    I take it that the 3 pt hitch moves the wing up & down? Nice set up.

    I believe from the picture, that the rear brace is pinned to the drawbar and remains in a fixed position.
