Hello everyone,

All ready august, as time flies I start to build a rear blade for the next winter.

I’m retired so money don’t flow much and I don’t have access to CNC or other big tools, everything was made with regular power tools (air or electric).

The biggest expand was the linear actuator, I want a buy a good powerful one so I check everywhere on the net.
I could buy one new for few hundred dollars but the spec were too weak.

I hit the jackpot on eBay last week, a bran new $700.00 US dollars actuator made by Thomson for John Deere (#AM133408) Gator rear cargo bed, I pay $130.00 with shipping.Posted Image

The steel come form an exerciser I find at the garbage day Posted Image and a neighbor hot water tank.

Enjoy the pics. Posted Image

Good attachment idea - I can see a lot of uses for such and attachment around here - now I just need to find the right tractor.

Yes I built the cab too, It's a must to have it, I install a radio in it this week, I'm waiting for the speakers and it's ready for the long snow storm.:thumbs:

With that setup you have to be looking forward to a big storm. That is a very nice build on the cab. Post some video of your snow clearing.
