Yeah, the plows on these are nice as they aren't all that complicated to hook up. Couple of pins and your done. Hope it gets some work!

Looks even better in the garage. Seat time, ain't it wonderful? Especially on a new toy.

Looks like it's ready to plow. I'll get some seat time today, albeit at the computer.

Seat time is good no matter where it is.Be it on a tractor,at the computer,or at the dinner table.Just as long as it isn't an electric chair.:bigrofl:

Hey, Tulsa made the Weather Channel this morning. Said we got a 1/2" with 40 mph winds. Looks about gone already. 25* right now with wind chill of 16*. That's -4.5C and -9.5C for the folks up north.
I'll have some more manuals to upload and that takes a bit.

Your Panzer looks like it's ready to go to work! Hope you get some time to go out and play in the snow.

It'll be the same thing here as always. They'll run the winter warning on the news every 5 minutes and everyone will run out and get TP, then we'll get no snow. I swear the people from Charmin sponsor the news weather. And why people buy more TP when it snows is beyond me.

I guess most people don't have the Sears catalog to use in an emergency like in the old days. LOL

I miss the days when the new Sears catalog was out. My brother and I studied on that for hours and hours on end when we were kids. Lots of stuff to see.

Barely a spit of snow here, but enough to cause the problems on the highway. all kinds of accidents around here last night and this morning. The back yard is white, mostly, Pearl the Panzer wants to go out and play......

O.K. guys what I need is a photo of just the plow and that bar and whatever is the hooking up part, to see how easy it is and to know what I'm looking for or how to make one cause these posts have moved a plow for my T75 way up my list as a "gotta have one"
Help !!

Did you get the one off of yahoo groups? I think a meteor one would go on a t75, but the lift may be different. It would be good if you get one made for panzer because the way the push tube is mounted with pins between the frame tubes. If you want to start from scratch then I can take pictures. The push tube and lift from mine is from panzer, but the plow is adapted.

Thank you for the idea, I went ahead and signed up to yahoo to get that pdf. Sure enough I was able to get the photo from yahoo group and I blew up the photo of Jimbobbillyray's in his pick-up before he unloaded and I think I can fab this up. I have a Jacobson blade that is rust free solid but missing most of the hook up brackets that has been around here for quite awhile that nobody seemed to want so it should work nice for this project. If you could give me the drop measurement from the rear attachment to the round tube, the length of the push tube/beam, and maybe the length of the lift tab and connecting rod it would save me allot of time guesstimating :)
The cross pieces just need to fit inside my rails and the holes in the frame (right?).
Jim
