I found a really nice plow for my work tractor which is a 416h. I need to make a rear axle bracket for it. There is no way I am paying 75.00 for one on ebay. I think them boys must have fallen and hit their head there ain't five dollars worth of metal in it.

If you are talking about the tachmatic hitch, I found one at a show for $20 and used it to replace the home made one on my Raider 9. I wasted a bunch of time making the one I had. Shop around. I just got back from Zagray, it was huge and there was a bit of everything there. Most prices seemed reasonable. Good Luck, Rick

If any one has one of those laying around I am willing to buy it as long as the price is fair.

This the part that bolts to axle and has the quick attach levers?  They seem to get left on tractors when plows are sold.  Some later models, not sure if one you have is one, but need an extension part that goes on back of blade frame to move it ahead about a foot or so to clear the forward swept axles on some models if yours is one of those?  That way it can clear wheels when you turn the blade to angles, it won't without extension. Even rarer hard to find part, but have seen people make those from common stock steel. Check sales. Have you been on or a member of Red Square, the Horse forums? One of best places to be for them.

I just can't for the life of me understand why people are charging so much for these I am finding them all over but they want 75.00 and up. One guy on Craigslist has had the same ad up for I know six months
