Already have some assembly done. You guys that don't use it already really need to use acrylic enamel with a quality wet-look hardener. You can handle things in no time!

Gonna wait a couple days to install the toolbar. I don't know what caused those little hazy checkerboard squares scattered through the pic. They especially show on the back side of the moldboard. It's a pic problem, as there are no squares on the plow.

Looks really nice Daniel, bet that will be impressive as heck behind the Hog.

You guys pay no attention to what i say! I said I'd wait a couple days before completely assembling......... I lied! I couldn't help myself and HAD to finish assembly! :smilewink: Besides, good hardener also makes paint chip easier, so tightening the bolts up now while the paint has some give will prevent chipping later. I measured as best I could to place the toolbar in the right place, but we'll have to wait & see if I was right.

Now don't any John Deere fans get mad at me, but I've heard from more than one "Green Guy" that John Deere plows pulled harder than most plows, and led to many JD owners to use other makes of plows. So is that true....and why would they pull harder? Plow shear angle?
