When I got my powerking 1612 it only had the 48 inch mowing deck. I really needed a snow plow so I picked up 70 dollars in materials and 5 hours later I was out clearing my road . I had a blast.

Took the pictures from my phone. Maybe I should make them smaller. Had no idea they were large. Having to much fun with the tractor to think clearly. Tractor coma.

Ditto on pix, but what detail then, ha!  I see you used the standard frame mounts, good deal there. and lift must be similar, can't tell. Zat manual or hydrualic? Being 12 hp, thinking manual.  One thing on blade you might want to consider is a swivel at bottom of mount and some big springs for kick-back if you hit a ridge or covered object that might bend a rigid blade. PK blades have that and still have place for upper pins to make stiff when used in dirt. Course, that gets complicated for home-build maybe. Nice job and you will find tractor can push quite a bit of snow if chains  and weights are used.

That is an issue with using a phone to upload the pics. They are either large or upside down!

I do have hydo on this tractor. I got the blade at a local salvage yard very cheap. It is painted yellow so I assume bolens. Thanks for the tip on the springs. I will work on getting some on the blade along with a swivel. I have dial up here so using my phone is the only way to get pix uploaded. Thanks for cutting them down for me. I have chains but need to get weights.
We still have 4 inches of snow from last Sunday and it looks like another 6 to 8 this Sunday. Going to get lots of seat time as the driveway is 1/2 mile long and up hill for over half of that. All dirt and gravel. I will check the picture size on the phone. May be to high. Thanks again for all the great advice and feedback.

I almost forgot. I searched everywhere for the frame mounts and so I found a picture of a factory blade so I made my own. I just need to make the blade the same when weather permits. I will send pictures of my shop later.
Thanks again everyone.
