That might require hitch mods, but that's easy for you. :)

Chris, with the hitch as it is, there will be a lot of L-R swing when it's out of the ground. Just watch that it doesn't hit the tires.

I am making a new hitch end for the plow, the one on it is in sad shape. So I will do a wider end with 3 holes.

I got the plow all sandblasted and painted today. made a new hitch end and welded a new piece of 3/4" threaded rod onto the adjuster arm. All i am doing now is waiting for the paint to dry so I can assemble it and get her into the ground :dancingbanana:

I'll be bringing it straight to my Dad's tomorrow and testing it out. He's only 5 miles from me.
