I paid $10 for a set of Western Snow plow markers, shortened them to 14" tall and installed them on my plow...... Just waiting for it to snow!

Welcome to the forum. Neat markers, are they pretty stiff? If the snow was that deep, I'm afraid I would sit it out. Normally would be gone in a few days down here. How tall were they to begin with?

Those are the same ones I put on my boss's truck plow after he cleaned the OEM ones off for the third time on out mailbox post.

The outside is plastic, so eventually, they will break in the cold.
Kinda nice to be able to see without craning your neck to find the end of the plow. :thumbs:

I put some homebuilt ones on mine last year. They are a stiff spring with a 1/4 inch rod. They lasted for a while but I wore out the springs from hitting the edge of bushes. They look cool though. :D

:wave: quartermaster35 Welcome to GTTalk! I hope I NEVER get enough snow at one time to justify having those on my GT LOL! They do look cool though! Thanks for signing up and sharing that with us!

They look good. A cheap way out would be to go to the farm supply store and get some fiberglass electric fence posts. 1 cut in two would make them and cost about $1.25. I bought a dozen for row markers in my garden last spring. I've thought of buying a bunch to mark the edges of my 1/4 mile lane, there is a 60 ft drop on each side of the filled in section. Dropping a GT over the edge could lead to some tough sledding.

That looks cool! I got the plow set up on my jacobsen after getting all new bolts and painting it with fisher yellow and black. I replaced the markers on my plow for the one ton last year. I was thinking of doing the same for the tractor. Go with the fisher markers. They are made of some type of wire and are flexable.
