Well i started on the plow for the craftsman today. Thanks to michiganmobileman a.k.a. Dad for the plow pivot mount (c chanel was not used in this project), and the neighbor guy for the plow and a few extra pieces i was able to make a useable plow for when the snow flies. Tommorows project is going to be a weight box on the back. Will also have soe better pics to add tommorow.

:welcome:Looks good Jeremy! See I knew there was a reason I saved those pieces of "scrap", will get the chains dug out of the bucket today and have them at work for you Monday. Looks like a Simplicity plow from what I can see, it should hold up well for you.

:welcome: Nice job mounting the plow. I have a tractor similar to this, just more silver than gray. Not doing anything with it yet, maybe next year. It's a 6-speed, 44" cut, but no mower deck. Good luck playing in the snow!

Wow, what a coincidence, but I just got done adapting exactly that plow to my Panzer. The plow came with it, but I knew it wasn't original. Any idea who made the plow itself?
After I mounted that very same plow, I decided that I wanted it to be spring loaded, and that turned out to be a bigger project than putting the plow on to begin with. Now, I'm not so sure it was worth it.

Good job and good luck!

I recently saw one of those on CL listed as a Wheel Horse LT snow blade.
Dunno if that's what it really is. :anyone:

I thought this was about a plow....difference in terminology. To most John Deere guys and most farmers, a plow is an implement to turn over dirt, while a blade, snow blade, dozer blade are all used to move dirt, gravel and snow. Every time I see the word "plow" I think of turning over dirt to prepare a garden, etc. Still hard to get used to of calling a blade a plow.

Good point. In PA, the word depends on how you use it. Everyone around here will talk about the time they couldn't get out of their snowy street "until the plow came through". But understood that it's technically a snow blade or snow plow.

Not trying to be nit picky but left with some free time at work,
Tomatoes\tomatoes, potatoes/potatoes:confuse: It all depends on what we are used to hearing and using. As long as I can remember in these parts we have referred to that curved thing on the front of a truck or tractor as a "plow", mainly referring to as a snow "plow". But according to Websters the definition of a "plow" fits more when applied to a moldboard plow,(...implement drawn behind tractor, used for cutting through and turning soil...) as opposed to a snow"plow". While a blade refers to(...the cutting edge of a knife, sword, razor etc....) and could technically refer to the cutting edge on a moldboard "plow" as well as the cutting edge of a snow"plow". I think in our applications the term is loosely applied to both implements equally, we just need to read through the thread to see which implement is being discussed.
Oh and BTW I still think that looks like the snowblade I have for my Simplicity, still have not been over to see it yet though.

I grew up using a walk behind plow, so forgive me if my mind immediately thinks a moldboard type implement.

I'm from Kentucky & I'm the same way, but I have stayed overnight many times in Missouri, so maybe it rubbed off! LOL
