    It's a 8 inch wide, but with the bedlock it bring it to a 9 inch.

    About the mud not ejecting it all depend on the speed i'm running. With the 6.32 granny gear tire doesn't spin much so tire doesn't eject mud very good.

    But on second speed there is no problem with the mud.

    My general approach when wheeling is to try the first speed, let the mechanic work is way up. I'm not a big fan of beating mechanic so i only do it when absolutly necessary.

    I'm my video first two try are in first speed and the last one where i climb i'm in the second one.

    Worked on my plow this week-end.

    I fit this plow last year without any side. I was using it only for finition but without side it was hard to make something clean.

    So i put side, that i can remove depending on how it will work.

    Cant wait for snow to come to give it a try :p

    If that plow does not have a trip, you need to go real slow.

    Just being the devil's advocate here, but won't the sides prevent it from being able to flip down? I'd think the sides would almost have to be built on a pivot point at the bottom rear corner to allow the blade to move independently from the sides, no?
