In preparation for todays 5" of snow, I tried to put the snow plow from my 3012 onto my 3310. It would not fit. The linkage mount on the plow frame hits the front axle when trying to pin it under the axle. I thought that all 7 of my early AC/Simplicities used the same plow. I have two plows(one is on a 725 with a rod rap) and had wanted to use atleast one of them. Will the one on the 725 fit the 3310? It will be a job to get to it.

 

Other things that went wrong were that my bolts for the wheelweights were short and I aggrevated my back putting on one tire chain. Its a good life, if you don't give up. Good Luck, Rick

 The snow this morning was followed by rain. This created 3" of slush that will freeze tonight. Another storm is forecast for Tuesday. I had to get the slush out of the way. I went out and plowed for an hour with my Ford 2000 with FEL. I worked on it a bunch last fall but hadn't gotten the cab on it yet. It worked well but, I got wet from the light rain that was still falling.The plowing was tough even for the 2000, because the slush was too heavy. The 3310 would have had a real tough time but the GTs leave a cleanner surface. I'll try to finish the 2000 upgrades and the 3310 plow tomorrow. Good Luck, Rick

Older plow frame will not fit 3300 series. 3300 and later have a different lift arm angle on the plow frame.Blade part of plow is the same...Dave

Sorry Rick. I have not been on site for a few days. As Vintage Iron Collector says; yes your plow will fit the AC and Simplicity tractors the same years and older back to the AC B1 and the Sim. 700....Dave

Like Dave points out, the issue is the angle of the lift arm on the plow hitch. I have carefully cut and rewelded a couple fdt hitches, such that the lift arm is perpendicular to the hitch (vs a 45*angle).

The rbts also use a longer lift rod from the rockshaft arm, and you would find that even with the correct or modified hitch, the fdt rod would be far too short.

You can still mount the plow and push, but you are greatly limited in lift height.
