Just used stuff around the shop, didn't buy anything. Not the greatest lookin hook up, but I'm hopin it works. It's quick attach, two pins, two springs, off it goes then two pins to put the bucket back on. Spring loaded on the plow only. No springs on bucket.
Any way, it's on there and will see how it works. Won't hurt my feelings if I don't have to use it this winter.

Noel.

I can't get used to you guys calling a blade a plow.  A plow to us in the Ag country is an attachment to turn the soil.  A blade is used to move material, or level or clear the surface.  Geeeezzzz! :poke:   :wallbanging:

Well I guess I shoulda said snow plow. Then call the other ground plow. Maybe it's the way it's spelled, plow, or plough.

Sorry for the confusion.

Just different terminology from different parts of the country Noel.  Got to admit though that loader looks a little bit better every time I see it.  :dancingbanana:

How about PUSH snow.  Your right.  Probably gets more use that way than any other.

Looks good.
Will those springs be strong enough?
And how long ago did you have a trampoline, anyways?

Its gonna tilt and flop, too light! Needs to be solid braced some times, but with swivel action too. Like the pk one.

It not easy to pull or push ahead, springs got a good hold on the snow blade.

If you have to get different springs or more, they can be added
May help you keep from tweaking the loader arms

I was looking at the blade pivot point , it seems kind of low compared to the snow plows I have , maybe it doesn't need a very strong spring then ?
