I have thought about a different mount some. Don't think it would be too awful hard to make. The blade would end up further forward most likely. An idea worth studying.
Snow Blade On Lgt165

I have a problem with the lift height on the snow plow for my LGT165 (open-sided).
The plow only lifts aprox 2" when correctly attached.
There is 1-1/2" of play in the lift linkage, yet all the bushings are in good shape.
If I put a 2x4 between the plow frame and the lift bar, I get aprox 6" of lift at the blade, however, the 2x4 doesnt stay in place when plowing (I've tried several methods to secure it with no luck)
I cannot believe that the plow was designed to only lift 2"
Has anyone else had this problem?
Any thoughts would be appreciated
Yah I've had a lot of problems with it coming out and swinging around. I gave up and use my homade build 4 way blade on my 317 John deere but I really like my ford 145 and 165.(closed sided)
