So I noticed that the 42"plow at full angle the rear tires were wider then the blade so I added roughly 6" to each side so the plow is wider then my rear tires.uploadfromtaptalk1444172978362.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1444172988386.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1444173004322.jpg

  Nice job, just remember there will be extra stress on everything especially when the plows hits things like rocks, curbs and frozen snow banks.

My father got a new Ford 800 TLB in 1954. He got a plow to replace the bucket in the winter. We had a big storm and he found that the plow wasn't wide enough. Being a carpenter, he made wood wings to push the snow back alittle more. They fell apart in a very short time. In desperation, he bolted a log onto each side. They lasted the rest of the storm cleanup. He later had steel wings made that could be bolted on when needed. Good Luck, Rick

Nice fab work.

I added 6" on each side of a 42" plow to make a 54" for my Wheel Horse GT-14. Worked very well.

Looks good!

 

I did the same with mine a few years back. I cut up an old propane tank and shaped it to fit. Here are before pant and after paint pictures.

Nice to have the extra width.
I had a 54 and gave it back to its previous owner. Sometimes miss it, but it was kinda wide at times.

Nice job and it looks like you have the tractor to handle that wide blade too.  Happy plowing!
