Well I think I have finished my projects for the PK. New 5' TSC back blade and a repaint of the snow plow and recently acquired wheel weights. Put on the chains and bingo! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Bill

Nice setup! Looks like your well prepared for the white stuff. Been thinking about a rear blade myself, just haven't got it yet.

From experience I can tell you, that is one snow pushing machine! Now the question, doesn't the rear blade go down when the front blade goes up? How will you combat that? I use the same blade on my FEL tractor where the front and rear hydraulics are separate so it's not an issue. On my 2414 I usually just take the three point off in the winter because I have backed into things and bent the arms before.

Thanks for the kind words gents. I am all dressed up and no where to go! Last year we got practically nothing for snow, and now that I am ready we will probably see that again. I hope we get a few big ones so I can be the master of the neighborhood. I am a wanna be farmer stuck in the city. As for the separate control of the blades, I think I prefer to only have one down at a time. I however would like to be able to put both of them up as high as possible at the same time. As it is now they both are about 10 inches off the ground when in the middle of the cylinder stroke. This 10 inches should be enough for where I will be plowing. It is also possible that I might choose to use just one of the plows based on whatever experiences I have once the snow falls (or not). Nice running machine! Bill

That is a great looking set-up! I am sure it will work great! Like Jeff said, the opposite motions of the front and rear blade may be an issue, but I am sure you will get the hang of it!
