Thanks for the pictures of that plow Vin122. I am putting together a file of pictures and ideas to work from. Ducky, If I don't find a plow bottom to use by the end of January I just might take you up on that offer. I don't do much in the garage during December-to much stuff going on and January-to cold to heat up the garage to work in. I am going to assemble some parts I think would be helpful in building the plow now before my parts pile gets frozen down and covered with snow. January will be planning and start building later. I have a bunch of narrow 8 inch rims that should work for the front 2 wheels and a couple of 6 inch and even some 4 inch rims for the tail wheel. My first thoughts are to build a battery box into the front hitch to try and hide the battery as much as possible. I have a cub Cadet electric lift assembly that may get used for the plow lift. I think this will be a fun project (aren't they all!) and a lot of guys could give plowing a try.

I think that this is a great idea! I can't believe that no one thought of it before! Good luck and keep us posted.

I may have what you are looking for!
I built a tool carrier so I could use my sleeve hitch implements with any tractor even without a sleeve hitch.

I have plowed some with it without problems. Even when I have to add weight, it is relatively easy to lift and lower.
I just kind of built it on the fly without measurements but I can do some measuring if you need it.
Hope this helps!

Now that is another neat idea! I guess which way I go depends on which kind of plow I can come up with. Your set up looks simple to build and should work out well. Thanks for the pictures.

Petepete, what size plow is that you are using and what brand plow? Your design would be easy to put on an electric lift and battery. What other sleeve hitch implements do you use with your tool carrier? Nice job on it.

The plow in the pictures is a Craftsman. I think it's 10 inch.
I also have a roto tiller and single shank ripper I use with it.
And I first built it with an electric winch for lifting. The winch was mounted where the lift handle pivots and the cable went down to where the lift rod attaches. I still use the winch on it when I have the rototiller mounted just because it is so heavy!
