I got the cab painted on the Waldon mini loader and while it dries today I am building a pipe edge for the front and rear of the mini 4020 . That eliminates lawn damage until the ground freezes solid later in the winter. I got the first pipe split and mounted. My neighbor was hauling this blower to the scrapyard and I said wait a minute !! , so I am using it for a rear pusher box blade until i find a used gear box and some augers.

Everything is looking great, Don! Can you explain the pipe edge a little more?

A pipe edge is used to plow wet snow with the ground underneath still soft and mushy. This prevents the plow from digging in the lawn or soft gravel. I cut a one inch slot the full length of the 2 inch steel tubing and then welded four tabs with holes to bolt it to the blade. After I finish widening the front blade I am thinking of making one for the front blade too . I like plowing the whole back yard so it is a must for me , ha,ha.

Todays progress I got the ends of the blade widened and painted. Now this little mini 4020 is ready for some serious snow plowing.

Next project was to mount the rear weight frame and weights I got from my neighbor that was laying in the weeds getting ready to haul to the scrap yard. Amazing what a day of sanding and painting can make something all rusty look pretty good. Also got the chains on the jd 455 .

I rearranged the workshop today and had to clean some stuff out of there. Here is a picture of my almost completed painted cab project.

Looks like your ready for winter now. Don how well does the pipe on the bottom of the blade work for scraping the driveway clean? And it makes sense when going across the yard so you dont dig it up.

I can't imagine it will scrape very well but we'll see . I may not like it because i like to keep it scraped clean. I may just use it on the rear and not the front blade.
