I was thinking a deflector would help plowing , has anyone added them to there plows and if it was worth adding .Here's a picture of the tractor I want to put it on and a Meyer's one ,

I made some rubber ones out of some HD mud flaps. Put some srings behind to help with rigidity & it made a big difference. Until I ripped one off that is. When I do it over, I'm making steel ones. It's a big help with the fluffy stuff. It stops rolling off the side.

Mud flap might make a quick ( cheap ) fix . I only need it for the RH side of the blade . I searched " snowplow wings" but that might not help the problem I'm having with the snow going over top .

If it's over the top of the blade then a quick solution would be to bolt a piece of 3/4" plywood along the full length of the top edge of the blade.Make it what ever width you'd like to heighten your blade.I'am sure a half dozen bolts spaced evenly along the top edge would suffice.Use about a 4" overlap on the blade and you'll be good to go.Larry

Larry . I like the plywood idea, I could try a piece and it would be easy to fine tune the shape and if it works good maybe copy the shape in steel . Thanks
