Well I worked the Speedex yesterday, pushing the remainder of the snow out of the drive. :Last pass on the drive, went to raise the plow and oops, it won't lift. Piece of cast iron that had been cobbed to the plow frame
as part of a "repaired" lift arm let go.

Time to fix and repair. Cut off the remaining pieces and cleaned things up so I could measure for some new lift pieces. Figured it was time to make a pair and out of 1 piece for strength.

Put things back together and voila, ready for the next storm, hopefully not until next year!!

Nice work on the repair! That ought to hold for a long time to come. You got seat time and tinker time! Sounds like a great day to me!
