A few years ago, I made a snowplow for my 1978 1614 PK adapted from a Jeep snowplow. At the time I tried to make it just like a factory built PK snowplow so I cut the plow down to 4' 6" . Mistake, I should have left it the full 5' 6".  It sits out in the back yard now.  I thought I had a picture of it because I was going to put it on Craigs list but I will have to take another I guess.

I have a 5' plow made from a snowplow for a 4 wheeler mounted on a 1958 Economy tractor 1 transmission and a Briggs and Stratton engine. Rear tires are loaded with cast iron weights and chains.

Here's one more I made a few years ago but I never had enough drive way to keep it around. sold it a couple years ago .Cleared the driveway in a couple of passes, where's the fun in that.

Nice repurposes. Those PK's look like they are great machines and ready to work.

I bet the Fergy did a nice job for you. Their size doesn't reflect how much work they can do.

Those both look like good plows! Being that your plow is 5 feet wide, I would say it is much better then the original.
