Congrats on getting a plow Chris. You do work fast at getting things done. The plow looks great and I think it will do a good job for you.

Nice find and refurb Chris :thumbs: Yeah you work FAST. I just read the thread today and you almost got it from "just got" to "in ground" in one post!! Oh and Simplicity did make some tractors for Wards so that could be the difference in names. Heck all this talk about plows makes me want to try mine out :laughingteeth: !

I don't have access to a mill anymore. I drew it out, drilled holes then went at it with 3 different types of files. took awhile but it came out good, I just took my time.

Thanks! It won't be for long LOL. I think it will look better with a nice coating of dirt and some paint worn off :laughingteeth:

You do work fast! If it belonged to anybody else it would probably be just coming apart! Im impressed with the way you made the slot in your fancy new hitch, nice work!

I think I have to do a little more fabricating. I made the hitch the same angle as the one I took off, But Even when I put a 6" block under the tires it still isn't level.As it sits it doesn't look like it would roll the dirt over nice.Maybe I will get creative and make an adjustable front hitch.I just want to try it out, Theres a chance of rain from tomorrow threw Thursday
